If you’ve glanced at any of the "ones to watch in 2009" lists coming out of the U.K., you undoubtedly have caught Dan Black’s name. On the back of his Notorious BIG mash-up / cover "HYPNTZ", the Parisian-based Englishman is being hailed as one of the pop talents to watch out for.
And now Black is set to release his next single "Alone" next week on March 9, which is said to be "a collision of Scritti Politti and Prince, filled with a soaring cosmic electronic landscape, it’s a euphoric out-of-the-box hit." We're not sure what the original sounds like, but here's Lovelock's reworking of the single for you to judge it's euphoric-ness for yourself. Dan’s debut album is currently being recorded in an 18th century cellar under his apartment in Paris and will be released sometime in May 2009.
