Details

An artist whose music is at once timeless yet utterly of its time, Gregory Porter solidifies his standing as his

generation’s most soulful jazz singer-songwriter with the May 6 release of Take Me to the Alley, the much anticipated

follow-up to his million-selling Grammy-winning 2013 Blue Note debut Liquid Spirit.

 

“Holding On” the album’s stunning opening track, finds Porter presenting his decidedly different version of the

Disclosure single that he was the featured vocalist on and co-wrote for their album Caracal. “I decided to do

the song the way that I would have recorded it on my record,” Porter says. “It’s a way of saying that a song is a

song is a song. The lyrics and the intention of the song come through no matter what kind of bells and whistles

are going on.” The rousing, bluesy stomp “Don’t Lose Your Steam” is the first official single from the new

album and is dedicated to Porter’s three-year-old son with encouraging lyrics about staying committed one’s

goals regardless of hardship.
