Craig David is back after a very busy 2017 that saw him take his TS5 tour around the UK and release his number one album, Following my intuition.
His new single, Live in the Moment, continues the feel and vibe of his previous collaborations with Kaytranada on his album 99.99%. Their collaboration, Got it Good, has received over 35 million streams on Spotify as of mid January 2018. Live in the Moment is also produced by Kaytranada and features a similarly velvety production as seen on Got it Good.
Goldlink has blown up since 2017 and has just finished a world tour that saw him perform across Australia, North America and parts of Asia. He even toured with Keakie favourite Masego, the incredibly talented instrumentalist and jazz musician, for parts of his North American tour. Goldlink's platinum-certified track 'Crew' was even up for his first-ever Grammy award for the best rap performance.
Craig David and Goldlink have combined to produce a track that merges their very different but complementary styles. Craig's UK RnB and garage roots fuse with Goldlink's energetic. The track was teased bacn in mid 2017 on Craig's twitter.
This track is part of Craig David's upcoming album, Live in the Moment, which is set to be released later this month and is set to feature AJ Tracey, Bastille and Kaytranada.
Keakie's James Wild caught up with Craig David earlier last year to chat about this upcoming album and the progression of his style. Craig revealed to us that he was jumping into sessions with Goldlink, Kaytranada and AJ Tracey back in July, and it seems like all this hard work is paying off.
The full interview will be available later this month. Live in the Moment is available on all streaming platforms today.
