Faithless’s poignant second single ‘I Need Someone’, which quickly became a fan favourite on their acclaimed album ‘All Blessed’, receives a powerful update courtesy of double Latin Grammy Award-winning Spanish rapper Mala Rodríguez.
Full of emotion, on ‘Necesito a alguien’ (‘I Need Someone’), Spanish superstar Mala Rodríguez’s beguiling and haunting vocal perfectly complements Nathan Ball’s sublime original vocal. With its themes of loneliness and isolation, ‘Necesito a alguien’ (‘I Need Someone’) couldn’t be more relevant to these current times.
Mala Rodríguez was the first (and only) female artist to win both Best Urban Album and Best Urban Song at the Latin Grammy Awards. Her extensive catalogue has garnered her a multitude of fans, including Barack Obama, who featured Mala Rodríguez’s ‘Tengo Un Trato’ in his 2015 Summer Spotify Playlist.
Mala Rodriguez has toured globally and has collaborated with a range of artists that include Romeo Santos, Nelly Furtado, Calle 13, Ibeyi, and Tego Calderon and her recent tracks with Juan Magan (‘Usted’), Beatriz Luengo (‘Caprochosa’) and Ibeyi (‘Me Voy’) have all gone Platinum.
‘I Need Someone’ is the second single released from Faithless’s first studio LP in 10 years, ‘All Blessed’, out now on BMG and winning rave reviews from press and fans alike. Featuring in several Best Albums Of 2020 lists, ‘All Blessed’ charted at No.6 in the Official Album Chart and No.1 in the Dance Album Chart and No.1 in the Independent Album Chart.
Previous Faithless single ‘Synthesizer’ received strong support, including BBC Radio play from Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Jo Whiley, Annie Nightingale, Shaun Keaveny, and Nemone. DJs supporting the track included Roger Sanchez, John Digweed, Tom Novy, Marco Carola, Claptone, Gabriel & Dresden, and Kryder.
