Ghost & The City is a unique ensemble that AFROPUNK calls “Future soul” and Blackbook dubs, “A sultry but haunted cross between Sade, Portishead and The Blue Nile.” The new EP TIME is out this Friday, March 30 and melds alluring, soulful vocals, trip-hop grooves and jazz-influenced rhythms. Today, the group debuts their cover of Damon Albarn‘s collaboration with Bobby Womack, “Please Forgive My Heart“.
Ghost & the City is vocalist Kia Fay, drummer Will Jenkins and principle songwriter/keyboard-synth master Ash Maynor. TIME was produced by the highly sought after, Bay Area studio wizard Aki Ehara (The Seshen).
Kia expands on their idea to cover Bobby Womack saying, “His music has touched so many, and we found his collaboration with Damon Albarn to be particularly resonant and timeless. This is our version of a tribute to a true legend and innovator.”
