Gravity (Payfone Remix)
Alice Russell

Released: 6 Jun 2024

Label: Tru Thoughts

Much-loved British soulstress Alice Russell shares a club-ready remix of ‘Gravity’ by London-based studio production outfit Payfone. ‘Gravity (Payfone Remix)’ is a slow-house gem that combines Payfone’s signature Balearic flair with Alice’s pitched-down vocals.

The release also features an instrumental version of the remix as a DJ tool, and the original ‘Gravity’ taken from Alice Russell’s revelatory new album ‘I Am’, which has been praised by the likes of Clash, Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum and across Jazz FM, as Album of the Week.

‘Gravity’ is an orchestral love song about regaining truth and deciding that love is worth fighting for. Written and produced by long-time collaborator TM Juke, ‘Gravity’ is the latest single taken from Alice Russell’s long-awaited record, ‘I Am’, the most personal album of Alice’s career. Vulnerable and bold, ‘I Am’ addresses how we must all work on ourselves to heal so that we can love and connect with those and the world around us more honestly and deeply.

Payfone is the project of Phil Passera & Jimmy Day. Fresh from remixing Roisin Murphy, the London-based studio production outfit (formed in 2013) have to date released over sixteen individual 12” records including titles Day & Night, Paradise, Sofian and Phonica Record’s number one choice of 2023 – ‘I Feel You’.
