“This project started as something very different from what you’re hearing now”, Jon Hopkins explains. “I wanted Kelly to do a straight remix of ‘Luminous Beings’. I sent her the parts, but what she sent back just felt like something totally new, and had the potential to be so much more than a remix”.: https://bit.ly/349hM8U

Annie Lennox, Aretha Franklin and The Charles Williams Gospel Choir share the vocals on this feminist anthem that Lennox put together with help from her bandmate, Dave Stewart. Three members of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played on this track: Mike Cambell on guitar, Stan Lynch on drums, and Benmont Tench on organ. Acclaimed session man Nathan East handled bass; Lennox added keyboards.

U Got The Look
by Prince
(13 plays) | (0 fans)

This was Sheena Easton's first performance on a Prince song. Two years earlier, he gave her the lascivious song "Sugar Walls," which was a big US hit for the Scottish singer and part of her transformation from wholesome pop singer to rebellious vixen.Prince didn't write this song as a duet, but after Easton did "Sugar Walls," he asked her to come in to sing backup on the song. When Easton started singing her parts, Prince realized that it worked better as a duet, so they arranged the song in that manner, with the pair singing to each other.
