Talking about her involvement with the indie rock band’s latest single, ‘Tekken 2,’ the now 70-year-old music legend stated “After Jack [Steadman] invited me and then sent the song, I loved it, the ethereal part drew me in. The band has such innovative and passionate energy, truly great musicians. Absolute vibes.”
And about his surreal experience working with the iconic songstress, Steadman said:
“It has been a pretty crazy journey, from sitting on my sofa messing around with a keyboard and drum machine to sitting across from Chaka Khan in a fancy Los Angeles studio giving her singing directions.” “Chaka was an absolute superstar and the whole experience was so positive. I think the song reflects that – it’s about coming together, putting any bad thoughts aside and just enjoying the moment.”
Scheduled for an October 20 release, the collaboration is part of Bombay Bicycle Club’s forthcoming full length, ‘My Big Day’ which includes additional features with Damon Albarn, Jay Som, Nilüfer Yanya, and Holly Humberstone.
Concurrent with their newly recorded music, BBC have confirmed a new January/February headline tour across Great Britain and Ireland that kicks off in Belfast on January 29 and closes in Cardiff on February 18.
