With only a few weeks to go until the release of his new album The Time is Now, Craig David has premiered a new track called ‘Live in the Moment’.
Produced by the acclaimed Kaytranada, ‘Live in the Moment’ sees Craig team up with the Grammy nominated US rapper and vocalist GoldLink. The track has a soulful yet funky R&B vibe and remains true to Craig’s infectious style.
Speaking about the track, Craig said, “This song is one that I’ve been so looking forward to dropping as it really sums up my outlook on life and how much I value Living in the moment as I’ve realised that’s where all the fun & magic is.”
“It was amazing to work with Kaytranada again as he always comes so correct with the beats, so when I heard this one I instantly fell in love with the groove & knew exactly what I wanted to talk about.”
“What made this record for me though was having the opportunity to work with such a talented rapper as GOLDLINK. Not only was the vibe incredible in the studio with G, but it was amazing to connect with someone I have been following for a long time now who is an amazing human being on & off the mic. Excited for people to hear this and turn it up incredibly LOUD.”
GoldLink added, “Amazing vibes all round. Very natural song process as well… I was never the type to work in a studio with someone. I’m more of a bedroom rapper, but the environment had such a home feel that I was comfortable enough to break out of my shell and make something I was proud of with a person who I deem as a legend. Craig is one of music’s greatest voices, and I’m honoured to be part of this album.”
