JOY DENALANE RELEASES NEW SINGLE / VIDEO “FOREVER”

Motown Records’ German Queen of Soul Joy Denalane unveils her new single and video “Forever.” Listen Here via Motown Records. Watch the video HERE


This is off Joy’s forthcoming deluxe edition to her soul album Let Yourself Be Loved coming on September 3rd. “The song was quite a challenge,” says Joy. “The melody and arrangement have less of my signature than many of the songs on the album. I deliberately wanted to write something that theoretically other artists could also sing. Something classic.” From the first note, “Forever” sounds as if it had been produced in 1967 at the legendary Motown Hitsville recording studios in Detroit – and not almost fifty years later in New York and Munich. The choirs, the iconic bass, the flute sounds: every inch a classic. “Forever” is the second bonus track to be released from Joy’s deluxe edition from her soul album Let Yourself Be Loved. “The song was quite a challenge,” says Joy. “The melody and arrangement have less of my signature than many of the songs on the album. I deliberately wanted to write something that theoretically other artists could also sing. Something classic.”  Let Yourself Be Loved is in equal parts self-assertion, genealogy and homage to the great classics of the genre. A musical masterpiece where Denalane confidently brings together all the strands of her previous work. Nevertheless, she is not interested in vintage simulations of old soul recordings. She is driven by showing her musical identity. The album includes her singles “I Believe (Feat. BJ The Chicago Kid)” “I Gotta Know” and “Top Of My Love.” Recently Joy performed her track “Be Here In The Morning (Feat. CS Armstrong)” on COLORS.
