Alice Russell "Citizens" アリス・ラッセル「シチズン」 From the album Alice Russell - "To Dust Soul" 2013 [Lyrics to "Citizens"] Citizens of planet earth don't get caught in the act Don't strive to destruction the flash it's just that There's something behind these walls, something under the sheets ,I stay A truth that's been locked in way down in me You've got to get up , around your space And take a, take a little time to contemplate Will we ever see what it's like behind these walls And are you, are you still moving up everytime you fall, you fall Think a little about what you got Stop , think a little about what you got And start again I could be you, you And you , you You could be me , me And I , I , I could be you , you And you , you You could be me , me I could be you, you And you , you You could be me , me And I , I , I could be you , you And you , you And this we learned we would be free

Whether on a huge stage with a 16 piece band, charming a 4000 revellers into staying out dancing in the rain (as at Montreal Jazz Festival) or rocking an intimate club, Alice’s raw talent and charisma command attention and affection. Unfazed by taking the spotlight, singing with The Roots in Philly, or joining Roy Ayers for ‘Everybody Loves The Sunshine’, it is no wonder she has attracted worldwide media support, and fans as diverse as Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum, Dennis Coffey, Massive Attack’s Daddy G and Groove Armada. Highly in demand as a vocalist, Alice has recently guested on Talking Heads leader David Byrne’s solo LP, to add to collaborations with Mr Scruff, Quantic, DJ Yoda and Nostalgia 77. But it’s her solo records with longtime musical partner TM Juke that she is best known for, and they have borne some of the most arresting blues soul since the glory days of Aretha. “We’ve both got a very open approach to writing songs,” Alice explains of the prolific relationship, “Our influences run from Sarah Vaughan to Bach, Kate Bush to Arvo Part, and J Dilla to Alice Coltrane. We love everything from dirty, squelchy dubstep to old school soul. We nudge each other in the right directions.” ‘To Dust’ sees Alice exploring every letter of the soul lexicon and beyond to create her own dynamic sound; from the punchy, Prince-esque strut of “Hard And Strong” to the epic intensity of the title track, which could easily be the next Bond theme. Through the heartstring tugging “I Loved You”; the sonically smooth yet emotionally raw “Twin Peaks”; to the pulse-quickening build of “Let Go (Breakdown)” and psychedelic social consciousness of “Citizens”, Alice Russell is never less than scintillating as she displays emotions so real you feel you could reach out and touch them, and a voice of unparalleled versatility. The idiosyncratic structure of the record, peppered with interludes and reprises, makes for a unique listen and a satisfyingly whole ‘album’ experience. Tru Thoughts have signed ‘To Dust’ for territories including the UK, Americas, Australasia and Japan; reuniting Alice Russell with the label that introduced her to the world, where she released her first three albums, as well as myriad collaborations (including the BBC 6Music Playlisted “Look Around The Corner” single and LP with Quantic and his Combo Bárbaro earlier in 2012). A short, sold-out upfront tour in Nov/Dec saw Alice and her incredibly entertaining band premiering the new material. A full ‘To Dust’ tour will follow in April 2013 – dates TBA soon.
