Hannah Williams & The Affirmations appear on Jay-Z much-awaited new album “4:44”, which has just came out on June the 30ththrough Roc Nation and that is exclusively available on Jay-Z’s music streaming service Tidal.
The title track of the American rap super-star and music entrepreneur’s new album “4:44” is built around “Late Nights & Heartbreak” which is also the title track of Hannah Williams & The Affirmations’ latest album, released by Record Kicks last November.
The album, which comes four years after Hov’s last work “Magna Carta Holy Grail”, is produced by No I.D., already known for his works with Kanye West, Common and Jay-Z. Quoting Jay-Z: '4:44' it's the crux of the album, I woke up, literally, at 4:44 in the morning to write this song… It's the title track because it's such a powerful song, and I just believe one of the best songs I've ever written”.
Blessed by Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, the UK Soul Hurricane Hannah Williams confirms her status as one of the best soul voices around: she is an explosion of genuine emotions of love, lust, longing, anger and everything in between. “Late Nights & Heartbreak” has been recorded backed by her new band from Bristol “The Affirmations” at Quatermass Studio in London, the HQ of the British cult band The Heliocentrics and has been produced by legendary UK drummer Malcolm Catto, also known for his work with among the others, Mulatu Astatke, Orlando Julius, Floating Points, Quantic, Dj Shadow and Madlib.
Hannah Williams exploded onto the soul scene with her debut album “A Hill Of Feathers” in 2012. The first single “Work it Out” was an independent hit on the airwaves all over the globe and the official video has garnered over 1.5 million views on YouTube. The story of Hannah Williams seems to be written in lore from day one. Her father was a musically gifted minister and her mother let her join the church choir at the age of 6. Hannah could read music before she could properly read words. Now she's an unstoppable force of incredible, once-in-a-lifetime talent.
