Today (March 9th), Morcheeba share a remix of ‘Oh Oh Yeah’, their second single from upcoming album ‘Blackest Blue’ due May 14th. 

The track is quintessential Morcheeba, taken for a deeper, chilled, electronic dive by the genius that is South London Producer, Composer and DJ Hector Plimmer, that has seen him praised by the likes of Mixmag, RA, Gilles PetersonTom Ravenscroft, Lauren Laverne & many more.

Speaking on the track the band say: “It’s about getting stoned. Back in the day we didn’t think about the A&R guy, the single, ‘we need to hear the chorus in 30 seconds’. You’d have seven, eight-minute songs. So we went for it”.Pioneers of the British music scene, ‘Blackest Blue’ will be the band’s 10th studio album in a discography that spans three decades. 2020 saw Morcheeba unable to tour or perform live, which gave Skye Edwards & Ross Godfrey “time to write songs and really get to hone them,” as Godfrey puts it. “There weren’t so many pressures so we could really take our time getting the songs right,” adds Edwards.The result of this time is a refined 10 track album that fuses previous incarnations and sound of the band – such as downbeat, chill, electro-pop & soul – into one cohesive record that dives deep into the soul of the band’s genre-mashing musical heritage. As usual, the band didn’t approach the album with any pre-conceptions, and instead created an organic journey that represents everything great about Morcheeba.

Morcheeba’s global reach is impressive, taking them to every corner of the world . Their signature chilled electronic/organic sound has been border-hopping ever since the London-based band emerged as a household name.  The past year has been one of introspection for the duo, as they take stock of their renewed global fan base and look forward to being able to play the new album live in the not too distant future. “This was the first time since I was a teenager that I’d spent a year off the road and I enjoyed the tranquility, although I missed playing my guitar in far off lands,” says Godfrey.
 
‘Oh Oh Yeah- Hector Plimmer Remix’ is out now.‘Blackest Blue’ is due May 14th 2021 in partnership with Kartel Music Group.
