After producing a banging remix of M.I.A's "XOXO," Rieces Pieces now returns with a remake of V V Brown's "Crying Blood," which is one of his "favorite songs of all time." Rieces Pieces stays close to V V's original but gives the song a spunky hip pop twist that suits the track well. Totally fun. Grab the MP3 here.
V V is currently back in London to record tracks for her forthcoming second album. She has been working in the iconic Maida Vale studios with different collaborators including Q Tip. Very curious what's on her mind and what sonic direction she will take for this new record. She premiered new song "Sleeping With The Enemy" on her summer tour with Maroon 5, which I thought was ready and primed for the pop charts.
V V fans should also cross their fingers tomorrow night when nominations are announced for the 53rd GRAMMY Awards. There's a possibility that "Travelling Like The Light" will be up for a statue in the Urban Alternative category.
