Quantic – You Will Return ft. Alice Russell [EP]


“You Will Return” feat. Alice Russell, out digitally on 16th June, is the second single from Quantic’s ‘Magnetica’ album (out 5th May), a hugely anticipated LP which has lived up to its hype with glowing reviews across the board and a major feature in The Guardian, which delved into the impulses and experiences behind this record and compared Will “Quantic” Holland to other “global music adventurers” such as Damon Albarn and Gilles Peterson.

“You Will Return” is a bittersweet dose of soulful psychedelic folk that sees Tru Thoughts label-mate and long-time collaborator Alice Russell giving a beautifully wistful and potent vocal turn among Holland’s glistening layers of banjo, accordion and guitar, and a subtly driving beat. With an exquisite lacework of harmonies, and string arrangements (courtesy of world-renowned Miguel Atwood-Ferguson) this sliver of timeless perfection with a twist calls to mind the last time Quantic and Alice Russell joined forces, on 2012’s full collaborative album and BBC 6Music Playlisted title track “Look Around The Corner”. Testament to this song’s popularity, an alternative upfront version of “You Will Return”, released on an exclusive Record Store Day 7”, sold out in rapid fashion.
