true IMS Industry Insider | Welcome
Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Maya Jane Coles
out now
I’ve got to say, this track took me by surprise. I didn’t know what to expect from a new Maya Jane Coles album but I think this is the best thing that she’s done since What They Say. The album's called Take Flight, it came out August 25 and she’s produced, mixed and engineered the entire 24 tracks entirely by herself. It’s kind of a Prince-like creation, it would be a double album if it came out on vinyl. This is Trails by Maya Jane Coles, this week's Essential New Tune.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 28:00 mins here.
