NEW RELEASE: The Decoders - "Walk On By" featuring Noelle Scaggs
The Decoders are pleased to announce the arrival of the first single from Vol. 2, featuring a favorite singer from Los Angeles, Noelle Scaggs (of the band FItz & The Tantrums).
This isn't their first collaboration with Noelle...
The Decoders' very own Todd M. Simoninked a new Rock Steady arrangement of James Brown's "Think (About It)" for The Lions back in 2007, which featured Noelle on vocals. Noelle has also graced many other collaborations on her own, including with Quantic (aka Will Holland) and Dilated Peoples, as well as being the featured lead female vocalist in the L.A. funk and soul outift The Rebirth.
This version of "Walk On By" is an extrapolation of the original Dionne Warwick version, mutated with the stylings of Isaac Hayes' rendition and finally given a "decoded" Lovers Rock backbeat. This was quite the undertaking, and Noelle did a great job invoking the classic women of soul from the 60's era to give this version a refreshing-yet old school feel.
The single will be released on iTunes, Amazon.com, and Bandcamp on Tuesday, October 16th. Until then, you can listen to the sweet track here:
