Concrete Love

 

    I'm like a butterfly pushing against the wind," sings Fordham on her Vanguard debut. Fordham is, in fact, more like a butterfly emerging from her cocoon as Concrete Love marks a significant change in direction for the English singer.

Joe Henry's coarse vocals light up "Alleluia," while the title track, a paen to love without histrionics, features a smoky duet with India.Arie, whose soft, silky voice weaves in and out of harmonies with Fordham. Billy Preston helps pump up the funk on Hammond B3 organ and a variety of keyboards throughout the album, and Sir Harry Bowens and Sweet Pea Atkinson add heartfelt supporting vocals. With bass-heavy production from Larry Klein, Concrete Love breaks new ground for Fordham, pushing her from demure singer-songwriter to blue-eyed diva.
