It's Not That Easy
Lemar returns with what could be one of the urban albums of the year.
'The Truth About Love' - his third album - released September 11th. Lead-off single is the irresistible 'It's Not That Easy' - released September 4th.
A Tottenham boy born and bred, his musical world is steeped in the traditions of the finest soul and R&B. But while the territory is familiar, everyone agrees that Lemar's classic take on it sounds totally fresh.
This time Lemar has made his album with one producer, one band, one orchestra, one horn section and one mix engineer, to create a more holistic sound.
Amongst tracks on the album includes a collaboration with Joss Stone 'Anniversary' which has the vibe of a classic 'Atlantic' duet . 'Can't You See' a funky jam that features Styles P and Mica Paris on backing vocals; the soulful rock undertones of 'Beauty Queen'; 'Tick Tock' - with its nod to Sam Cook; 'Someone Should Tell You' which is an emotional journey of painful angst and the heartfelt ballad 'Can't Live Without Each Other Love'.
