Brooklyn Funk Essentials Releases New Song “Rollin' (Love Will Be Here)” featuring Alison Limerick
Brooklyn-based jazz funk band Brooklyn Funk Essentials, consisting of Alison Limerick (vocals), Desmond Foster (guitar/vocals), Ebba Âsman (trombone), Hux Nettermalm (drums), Kristoffer Wallman (keyboards) and Lati Kronlund (bass), released a new song “Rollin' (Love Will Be Here)” on March 10, 2023.
The song is the fourth single off of their upcoming seventh studio album “Intuition”, which is set to be released on May 5, 2023 via Dorado Records.
The track is featuring British singer-songwriter Alison Limerick as vocals, who joined in the band since 2016.
It was written by Desmond Foster, Lars Kronlund, Alison Limerick, Hux Nettermalm, Hanifah Walidah Robinson, Kristoffer Wallman, and Ebba Åsman.
The song is inspired by '70s soul sound with lyrics capturing the relief when lockdown was finally over and we could party again.
- The new album is their first LP in four years since the 2019 album “Stay Good” and comprises 8-track.
It sees the band lays out their new 'all killer no filler' long player across eight tracks of laid back grooves and arrangements that still remain cool, steady and easy.
The band founder Lati Kronlund said, “The organic approach is part of a confidence in our own groove and sound. We don't need technology to sound good. BFE's identity is in the way we play and the songs we write. This trust is the basis for the intuition that we experience when we are playing together. To let the music lead the way and not technology. I feel like I used to hide behind computers and drum machines, but 30 years in, we just jam until we feel the groove and then we record it. Old school. We get there almost instantly with no effort - just flow. In the time since we started BFE, so many musical trends have come and gone. So many sounds that were the 'hot new thing' are now old hat. We know that the music that inspires us to play is still stuff like classic Isley Brothers, Grace Jones, Sly Stone, Patrice Rushen and Roy Ayers…that's where we're coming from and we stay true to that.”
