Bristol six-piece Yes Sir Boss are set to release their brand new single featuring Joss Stone 'Mrs #1' on April 15th 2013. It's the second single from their 2012 debut album 'Desperation State' released on Stoned Records.
The accompanying music video is a home-movie style collection of footage of the band generally messing around and having a laugh with their Grammy winning new collaborator both on and off the stage. It's a wonderful touch that adds to the upbeat mood on this brilliant funk-rock track. Joss Stone's legendary soul voice adds an infectious pop flair to the track and contrasts beautifully with lead singer Matt Sellors's throaty vocals. Matt has admitted that he was pleased with the results despite not initially writing the track as a duet. 'The addition of female vocals seemed to add clarity to the lyrics, and in a way, make the song complete', he said.
The band have only been garnering attention since 2011 when they started ding live sessions for BBC Radio 1. They followed that with a massive UK and Europe tour in 2012 plus supporting Joss on her 'Soul Sessions 2' tour. They are now embarking on their headline UK Spring tour and even planning a new album at the end of the year.
