Vinyl LP pressing. Can it really be thirty years since The Brand New Heavies first sashayed their way into the public eye with a romantic's heart, a hedonist's spirit and a Superfly sensibility? Their extraordinary new album TBNH, however, finds the band - and main songwriters funk-soul brothers Andrew Levy (bass) and Simon Bartholomew (guitar) - embarking on an entirely new chapter in their illustrious history. At the album's core, a friendship dating back to the mid-eighties, and their shared experiences growing up in Ealing, West London. "For us it's always been about a love of funk, and the positive things which go with it, like dancing, hanging out and having a good time," says Simon of one of pop's most stylish and enduring partnerships."We didn't invent the wheel, but we did reinvent it to a certain extent by going back to the people in America who made the funk in the first place. That love of the music never goes away."
