6 of 1 Thing
Watch the video for Craig David's new single 6 of 1 Thing released through Warner Bros. Records on February 18th 2008. '6 of 1 Thing' is the follow-up single to Hot Stuff (Let's Dance).
Recorded in Havana, Cuba with producer Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall, James Morrison) and writer/producer/mixer Fraser T. Smith (Kano, Beyonce, Plan B, Jamelia), the sublime funk and irresistible beats of '6 of 1 Thing' really emphasises how Cuban musical culture influenced Craig David's new material.
'6 of 1 Thing' finds Craig David following a more soulful approach, with a looser live band style than on his previous albums. Other highlights include the ballad 'Awkward' (featuring guest vocals from unknown 17 year old Rita Ora from west London) that offers some of his most evocative lyrics to date, the infectious hook and insistent rhythms of 'Don't Play With Our Love', and 'She's On Fire' which combines sublime bass with Craig's fluid lyrical flow.
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
