Morcheeba Releases New Album'Head Up High'

In honor of the release of Morcheeba's eighth studio album, Head Up High (Out Today via [PIAS] America), you can now spread wide the track "Make Believer", a soulful and reggae-inspired song that "takes you on a trip from fantasy to fever".

Many artist guest appearances are also prevalent on Head Up High, as rappers Nature Boy, Jim Kelly and Jurassic 5's Chali 2Na appear on the sinister "Release Me Now" and the infectious, loping strider "Face Of Danger" respectively, the latter song a celebration of shame-free liberation and self-determination.

But it's not just rappers that guest on Head Up High: three tracks also feature the smoky vocals of White Denim guitarist James Petralli, who brings a soulful blues tone to "Call It Love" and blends beautifully with Skye's voice on the brief "I'll Fall Apart" and album closer "Finally Found You". All three songs also feature Petralli's lyrics, while Ross gets to display the full gamut of his guitar prowess, with a delicate break on the latter and an all-out, Hendrix-style blitz on "Call It Love".

Morcheeba have also confirmed a European tour for this fall/winter, with more worldwide dates to be announced in 2014.
