Smoove & Turrell return to the fold with their seventh studio album, once again showcasing their commitment to creating quality songs, with meaningful lyrics shining through in every single one. The album's title pays tribute to Ellen Wilkinson, an influential UK politician who championed social justice, reflecting their socially conscious stance and northern roots.
Lead singer John Turrell articulates their vision, urging love to reclaim its place amidst a world filled with turmoil and deception, over Smoove's masterful productions laid down with the assistance of their seasoned band members (every single one of whom is quality). Further collaborations with the likes of Ronnie Foster, a legend from the Blue Note camp to label mate Izo FitzRoy and her choir, adds depth to an album which addresses various themes, including unity, hope, relationships, and heartfelt tributes to departed family members. An inspiring listen for those looking to stand up for good and to support one another, for only love can conquer hate.
