London’s forward-thinking artist ECKOES, drops ‘Human’ (co-written and produced by Dee Adams and released March 3rd). The glowingly futurist R&B ode to life, is “a celebration & a warning & a promise – explains the British born Nigerian artist – The world is in a mental place at the moment; Nina Simone said “It’s an artist’s duty to reflect the times” – I didn’t consciously set out to write something so incredibly relevant right now, but your creative brain is a crafty beast, a step ahead of you sometimes.”
Fascinatingly, ‘Human’ features Maya Angelou a reading of the poem ‘I Am Human’, which is now owned by Oprah Winfrey.
ICYMI here’s her impressive debut offering called ‘Valentine’.
