Sultan + Ned Shepard & Fedde Le Grand - Long Way From HomeMarch 18th 2013
Released on Flamingo Recordings on March 18th the track, which is the official anthem to the 9-city Road To Ultra tour currently setting the US on fire, is a co-production with fellow Road To Ultra cohorts Sultan + Ned Shepard.
Marking a slight departure from le Grand’s recent sound, ‘Long Way From Home’ is a warm, funk-infused cut soaked to the bone with lush rhythmic hand claps, rolling drum sections and an infectious blues vocal riff, underpinned with juxtaposing synth stabs and jumping acoustic guitar chords that thrust energy and pace throughout the entire piece.
Le Grand premiered ‘Long Way From Home’ to the world at large during a special guest mix and interview on Danny Howard’s drive time BBC Radio 1 show late last month. On March 15th, straight after what is sure to be yet another epic UMF set from Fedde and marking the end point of his Road to Ultra tour, the ‘Long Way From Home’ video will go live to billions around the world through YouTube. Containing exclusive content shot during the tour, rumor has it that a second video packed with sensational live footage from UMF looks set to surface some time after.
