Air horn klaxon alert. A new super group has arrived and it’s got everyone you never imagined piled in together on one strangely repeatable track.
Mark Ronson is no doubt the man of the moment. Every time he reappears it’s with something coated in gold dust. It’s a mysterious, talismanic effect he has upon whoever he works with. But surely, surely the legend that is Rod Stewart doesn’t need his assistance, lovely Rod, an icon of years gone by and hairstyles gone wrong. Regardless, they’ve teamed up with Harlem rap wonder A$AP Rocky and neo-soul singer Miguel for “Everyday”.
An unlikely bunch to say the least, but it works. Rod Stewart’s (wonderfully) aged croaks and croons are the perfect antidote to Miguel’s sheeny soul perfections and A$AP’s effortless and of course confident lines.
The track is followed by the announcement that A$AP’s next album, At.Long.Last.A$AP. will drop on 2nd June.
Words: Lily Walker.
