Superstar DJ and producer Paul Oakenfold will return on June 6 with his new artist album "A Lively Mind"
that will be released on Maverick Records. Once again, Oakenfold
(who admits he is a terrible singer) continues his tradition of
employing guest vocalists on his songs. This new CD features
Pharell Williams, Grandmaster Flash, Spitfire, and most noteworthy,
actress Brittany Murphy. Oakenfold told me on Sunday that he chose to work
with Murphy because he was looking to do something original and
different. He also added that it was the hardest song to record because
the inexperienced Murphy needed lots of direction in the recording
booth. The result, however, is an infectious, throbbing dance track that
will surely blow up dance floors this summer.
