Swedish songstress Tanya has released her new soulful single titled – Candy.
No, this isn’t a cover version of the Cameo classic. Tanya’s song is original smooth and elegant, with a seductive saxophone and catchy chorus.
We don’t judge books by the cover, well..erm… we shouldn’t but a songs cover art is an overlooked dimension to the full music experience. Tanya has always taken this seriously and Justina Rosengren once again nails it with a striking photo and design.
Behind the music is producer and songwriter Peter Bruhn (Aaliyah, Ace of Base, Meja, Leila K and Bill Champlin). The sweet saxophone is provided by Pete Fraser (The Pogues, Amy Winehouse, Man Like Me, John Newman) accompanied by the legendary guitarist Chuck Anthony (Roy Ayers, Blacknuss). Together with the team, Tanya composes the music and arrangements for the songs and writes all of the lyrics and melodies for the songs.
Though the single won’t spawn a series of dance routines like its namesake it’s a grower with repeated warmth.
