Craig David Info
Craig David returns with new single ‘Hot Stuff’ on November 5th and fourth album ‘Trust Me’ on November 12th
With 13 million album sales worldwide and still only 26 years old, Craig David has earned a reputation as one of the UK’s foremost talents, as well as one of the nation’s most successful musical exports. He’s now poised to return with a new album ‘Trust Me’ on November 12th, already being heralded as his finest since the 2000 debut set ‘Born To Do It’.
‘Trust Me’ will be previewed by the release of the single ‘Hot Stuff’, available on physical (and digital download from October 29th) formats from November 5th. ‘Hot Stuff’ combines Craig David’s inimitable vocal gift with irresistible funk-infused beats and a sample of David Bowie’s classic track ‘Let’s Dance’.
Recorded in Havana, Cuba with producer Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall, James Morrison) and guitarist/producer Fraser T. Smith (Jamelia, Mutya, Plan B), the track ‘6 of 1 Thing’ emphasises how Cuban musical culture influenced his new work, whilst the ballad ‘Awkward’ (highlighting guest vocals from a female west London star-to-be) features some of his most evocative lyrics to date. Other highlights include the infectious hook and insistent rhythms of the title track, and ‘She’s On Fire’ which combines sublime bass with Craig’s fluid lyrical flow.
Sounds intersting! His "Born To Do It" and "Slicker Than Your Average" are masterpieces of Uk R'n'B. Hope this album is better that his last one.
