Single Review: Laura Mvula – Overcome (feat. Nile Rodgers)

Laura Mvula Overcome

Laura Mvula collaborates with legendary Nile Rodgers on new single
After her contribution to the soundtrack of the film The Man From U.N.C.L.E., the jazzy and suspenseful ‘You Work For Me‘, she is back with the official first single of her upcoming second album. The record is called The Dreaming Room and will be released sometime this year and the first single ‘Overcome’ is a collaboration with the legendary Nile Rodgers of Chic fame! As you would imagine, the alternative soul of Mvula gets a little disco make over on this one!

Laura Mvula rose to fame thanks to those distinctive, soulful vocals of hers and she shows now that they also work perfectly with the funky guitars of Nile Rodgers and the delicious production by Troy Miller. The track actually builds towards an uplifting finale where she repeats the sentence ’round the mountain, all Gods children run’. The lyrics are actually hope giving for people going through a hard time and this is underlined by the uplifting sound of the melody and production. This was a great way for Mvula to renew her sound just a little bit, without having to give up what made her so special in the first place. This is how two artists inspire each other to reach new heights!
