New Candi Staton Out Now on Defected!

Candi Staton has legacy beyond compare. Responsible for some of the most memorable and best loved soul records of all time, Staton has a voice that is currently captivating a new generation of music lovers just as it did when she first oooed and ahhed onto the music scene as a soul siren in the ‘70s.

Staton’s latest single is ‘Hallelujah Anyway’; a timeless, feel-good soul record typical of Staton’s overwhelmingly positive musical message, now released with remixes from Director’s Cut and Larse. Under their Director’s Cut guise, Frankie Knuckles and Eric Kupper deliver two versions that pair Staton’s inimitable vocal with Knuckle’s legendary house chords with stunningly effective results. Larse meanwhile goes deep with a club-ready cut that demonstrates the versatility of Staton’s vocal, sitting proudly over a beautifully melancholic piece of production….and is already becoming one of the vocal records of the summer 2012 season.
