Listen: AlunaGeorge & ZHU Collaborate On “My Blood”

Some artists just seem to do collaborations well and that is certainly the case for British duo AlunaGeorge as they have combined with producer ZHU to create a stellar track entitled My Blood.

The duo of AlunaGeorge, made up of Aluna Francis and George Reid, have recently worked alongside Jack U, Popcaan, and Australia’s own Flume, and now they can add ZHU to their growing list of esteemed electronic frontrunners for the second time.

It’s not the first time the two artists have worked together, after also joining forces on last year’s Automatic. That was a project carried out by the producer for his Genesis Series EP, which featured a host of other artists including Skrillex and BoneThugs N Harmony.

Dropping by Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio show to premiere the track and have a brief discussion, Francis explained the origins of the collaboration and why she liked the producer so much.

“I went on the internet when I heard Faded. I was like, ‘I don’t care if we don’t know who he is. I’m going to find him.’ I was such a geek,” she said.

In the latest of Zane Lowe’s World Record’s, the veteran host described My Blood as a “bonafide smash.”

My Blood features a hip hop orientated beat that underpins Francis’ soft and sensual vocals, while the lyrics seem to focus heavily on an unrequited love and the pain that goes along with that situation. The new track follows on from fellow singles I’m In Control and I Remember.

Their Brit-award nominated debut Body Music was released three years ago and saw them gain significant praise amongst critics and fans alike. The duo are still preparing for their eagerly anticipated sophomore release but this track is sure to build the hype, as I Remember looks set to be released sometime later on in the year.
