What do Above & Beyond classics “Alone Tonight,” “Thing Called Love” and their timeless “Sun & Moon” all have in common? They each feature vocals from British singer-songwriter, Richard Bedford.
Their latest masterpiece “”Northern Soul,” off their forthcoming artist album, Common Ground is not only an emotional reunion with Bedford, but it also serves as an ode to Detroit.
“We’ve had ties to Detroit since before we met. Along with the world’s best chrome wheels the city gave us all such sweet soul music, Aretha Franklin, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles, Stevie Wonder and the rest of the legendary Tamla Motown alumni, The Parliaments, Patti Smith, The White Stripes and Eminem – the list is endless.” said Above & Beyond’s Tony McGuinness.
“And let’s not forget techno, without whom etc. So we’re all hugely indebted to Detroit.”
