Fabiana Palladino and Jai Paul‘s “I Care” is out via Paul Institute/XL Recordings.
A former member of both Jessie Ware and SBTRKT‘s backing bands, Fabiana Palladino is also the protégée of Jai Paul and A. K. Paul, who are running the elusive Paul Institute. It’s on this record label and creative house that the pop visionary will release her long-awaited debut album – yet to be detailed. If like us, you just can’t wait, you can already listen to the slow-consuming and ethereal ballad “I Care,” on which she’s joined by Jai Paul.
“I wrote this song on my Juno 106 one night at home and played it to Jai the next day,” explained Palladino. “He instantly came up with a beat and we worked together on the track from there. I’ve always loved those Motown duets with Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, or Diana Ross and wanted to create a modern version of that. We’re playing with the way those duets have this quite clear notion of romance, love and relationships…we’re subverting that a little to explore normativity in relationships. Musically, we’ve tried to put all of the beauty, excitement, and tension of modern day love into this song.”
