That Naughty Boy’s not waiting for anyone with his collection of singles. Yes, his previous track ‘La La La’ is currently impacting the ARIA top ten (and ain’t it thrilling!), but over in his homeland, he’s soldiering on with his next single project, once again re-uniting with the divine Emeli Sandé.
They previously collaborated on the album’s lead single ‘Wonder’ and now here they are again, sandwiching the Sam Smith collaboration in the middle.
While ‘Lifted’ is a pretty fine track on its own merits, it’s incredibly similar to Emeli’s own stunning breakout track ‘Heaven’ in feel and sound; lots of dramatic sweeping strings and breakbeat percussion. Whether that’s a good or bad thing, we’ll leave you to decide, but there’s no denying the similarities.
