AlunaGeorge are back with a new LP I Remember coming early this year and they have dropped a great tune to let us know that. I’m In Control ft. Popcaan, a Jamaican dancehall recording artist, is a fab dance tune that can beat these winter blues and get us excited for summer. Its kind of pop-reggae come Middle Eastern, the mix is a strange one but it definitely works well together. Popcaan’s Caribbean roots definitely shine through and it’s fab.
In an interview on BBC Radio 1, Aluna Francis told Annie Mac, that they’ve been working on the LP for over a year and they’re really excited for the release.
“You know at one point we thought we had it finished and because we’re musicians we woke up one morning like, ‘no, that’s it, it’s not done, we have to keep writing’ and then we had one song and we were like ‘right now that’s the bar all of the other songs has to be as good as that’”
Last year DJ Snake’s remix of You Know You Like It by AlunaGeorge was a massive hit and even in America it was played in almost every club, as it was here in the UK.
“It’s obviously so hard for a small duo like ourselves to be recognized so when I get in a taxi and it’s on the radio it’s a really nice welcome”
You Know You Like It was not their only success; Your Drums Your Love a Duke Dumont remix was also a huge hit, as was Supernatural and Attracting Flies. AlunaGeorge also did a tune with Disclosure, White Noise that is probably the most successful back in 2013.
It was Annie Mac’s song of the week and it’s mine too, especially while I’m daydreaming of drinking margaritas and partying on a beach, it gets me very excited for their new album.
