Jake Alder, one of UK’s most promising producers, and highly talented Alt R&B-singer Charlotte Turnbull have teamed up for their collaborative single ´Think Back‘. Both of them have had an exciting year so far already – while Charlotte just released ´Highs & Lows´ featuring rapper SNE which promptly got chosen as BBC 1Xtra’s song of the week, Jake pleased our ears with his BBC and Spotify supported single ´Going Under‘ featuring Caswell not too long ago.
‘Think Back’ is Jake’s first foray into a more R&B driven sound whilst retaining his signature electro-pop and synth elements. The beat provides a base for Charlotte’s dynamic yet soulful vocal delivery. When listening to `Think Back‘ the unforced connection between the two artists is being displayed immediately. When speaking about the new release, the duo state:
“When I wrote the beat it had this RnB feel which I hadn’t done before so I couldn’t imagine anyone else singing on it apart from Charlotte. She’s an amazing RnB singer/songwriter so the writing process came really naturally.” Jake
“I remember Jake showing me the instrumental and I loved it immediately, it fitted the direction I want to take my music. The lyrics are about not letting anything get in the way of a relationship when things are tough.” Charlotte
