Christmas comes early for Texas fans as they release new single Hi featuring old friends Wu-Tang Clan. The accompanying video directed by Fenn O’Meally, stars upcoming British actor Kadeem Ramsay who recently featured in Top Boy and Small Axe.
Hi is an exhilarating slice of joy, reuniting Texas with Wu-Tang Clan, and offers the first glorious taste from Texas’ forthcoming album. It’s also the first new music from Wu-Tang Clan in three years.
No strangers to each other, Sharleen met up with RZA in Glasgow last year during the filming of a documentary to discuss their classic collaboration Say What You Want, which Texas first performed with Method Man at the BRITS way back in 1998. Working on a new track was mooted, Texas soon sent a version of Hi to LA and Wu-Tang Clan sprinkled magic dust all over it.
Sharleen Spiteri flexes her soulful vocals over the Ennio Morricone style guitar and raps provided by RZA and Ghostface Killah, resulting in Hi, a song guaranteed to make you smile.
A new Texas album will be released next year. For now, sit back and enjoy the ride!
