LISTEN: Marie Bashiru - 'Joyride'

Time for a debut track, and a really lovely one at that. Marie Bashiru shared Joyride a couple of weeks back and it's been circling round my head a lot since. Released via Common Language, a new label established by songwriter/producer Steph Marziano, this is a truly impressive and stand-out debut. It's soulful, you can't help but feel warmed up inside on listening. I've got it on repeat currently, with that recurring "we'll be alright" injecting a little bit of hope. 

Marie explains "Joyride is a song written in the spirit and in homage to my West African background. It takes you on a journey of adventure, colour and new beginnings in the midst of challenge and uncertainty. Imagined with a backdrop of earthen and off-the-beaten paths, dry heat and low wide expansive skies, it challenges you to enjoy the ride and not forget the journey to the destination."
