Amidst a series of single releases this year, including ‘We Drink‘ and ‘Holiday Love‘, Sydney singer, songwriter and producer James Chatburn has snuck in a little gem of a cover, with his own rendition of Prince’s ‘Little Red Corvette‘.
In a complete reworking of the original, the mellow, neo-soul track is driven by a strong R&B beat and polished off with Chatburn’s slightly raspy yet soothing vocals. It’s almost unrecognisable as the Prince classic, a refreshing example of Chatburn’s producing and vocal talents.
After relocating to Berlin, Germany, the singer has worked with the likes of rapper Frank Nitt (Frank n Dank), and producer Dizz1 (Roots, Aloe Blacc, Manuva). As he builds a solid body of work, this single marks a year with much more to come, so keep your eyes peeled!
