Hannah Williams 4:44 Grammy Nominee & Tour

Published on Mercoledì, 27 Dicembre 2017

If you've paid attention to popular music in 2017, you ought to recognize “Late Nights & Heartbreak” by our UK Soul Hurricane Hannah Williams & The Affirmations from the moment you press play: it's the soulful, stirring, that provides the backdrop for 4:44 the centerpiece of Jay-Z’s most recent album, nominee for "Song of the Year" at The Grammy Awards 2018. Written by Kanan Keeney and published by Edizioni Record Kicks (SIAE), the track is taken from the band's 2016 studio album, "Late Nights & Heartbreak" produced by Malcolm Catto. The track was discovered by hit-making producer No I.D., and sent to Jay-Z to prompt an artistically fruitful sleepless night of heartfelt introspection and passionate confessional writing. No I.D. recognized: only a stone could hear Williams’s performance on “Late Nights” and not be moved.

Hannah Wiliams is a force of nature, a rare SOUL talent. Everybody who had the chance to see her performing on stage knows it. For all the others, pl watch this amazing live version of the song, recorded at Sofar Sounds London down here. The guys are about to embark in a new Tour from Switzerland to Japan and back. Prepare to be overwhelmed: Jay-Z and No I.D. sure were. Now it’s your turn.
