"Lone soul genius Cody ChesnuTT on dazzling form...Echoes of Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye and Al Green, his soaring tenor multi-tracked over strings, funk guitar, subtle horns and darker organ shadings" ***** The Independent
"Cody's thrilling unorthodoxy remains." **** Q Magazine
A new take on tracks from Cody ChesnuTT's critically acclaimed 2012 release Landing on A Hundred features previously unreleased material and remixes.
Landing on A Hundred: B-Sides and Remixes (March 24th) picks up where the full length album left off... surveying the landscape of everyday life. The message -- that life in these times must be dealt with head on -- is dressed in a myriad of sonic outfits, but is consistent in its spirit.
"It was great to have other people -- Questlove, Gary Clark Jr, Danny Swain, Jay West and Manuel Sahagun -- contribute their talent and interpretations to the mix," says Cody. "They brought colours and textures that I might not have considered, but did so with desire to maintain the integrity of the original work."
Cody has just been announced as the special guest on Janelle Monáe's forthcoming UK May dates, and for the first time in 10 years Cody will be performing select songs from his critically acclaimed debut album, The Headphone Masterpiece.
Universally acclaimed for his edgy, sprawling Shortlist Prize nominated 2002 debut, The Headphone Masterpiece, Cody ChesnuTT is a soul troubadour whose frank, socially conscious songs set the bar for what modern soul music can look and sound like: On every level - rhythm, song, subject matter, spirit - Landing On A Hundred delivers massively, it's message upbeat even as it reflects upon troubled times.
