‘Jaime’ – the first solo album from Brittany Howard – has been reimagined by an astonishing cross-section of the five-time GRAMMY winner’s peers. Featuring fresh takes and remixes of the album’s 11 songs.

“Making Jaime was so much fun for me because I was able to explore so many different genres of music. There were no rules. This reimagination project has been no different. I have been honored to have so many incredible artists from all musical worlds interpret my songs in such interesting and different ways.” (Brittany Howard)

The original album ‘Jaime’ was awarded four stars by Rolling Stone, MOJO and Q, named the Best Album of 2019 by NPR and nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the Best Alternative Music Album category. Praising ‘Jaime’ as “a candid autobiography in funk,” The New York Times said, “With a voice that can go to the roadhouse, the church or deeply private places, she exorcises troubles with the music’s sheer pleasure.”

“Stay High” won a GRAMMY for Best Rock Song after spending three weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Alternative Songs chart. “History Repeats,” “Goat Head” and “Short And Sweet” received GRAMMY nominations in the rock, R&B and American roots categories respectively.

In Autumn 2019, Brittany Howard went solo with Jaime, a fabulous first album of offbeat soul. A deliriously funky, psychedelic trip. This groundbreaking album by the Alabama Shakes singer resurfaced two years later in a revisited/remixed version put together by an eclectic five-star cast that includes Michael Kiwanuka, Childish Gambino, Little Dragon, Bon Iver, Canada’s BadBadNotGood, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Jungle and Laura Mvula. The real strength of this Jaime Reimagined is that it was made in the same spirit of freedom as the original. No barriers, no blinkers, no rules: the remixers do as good a job on experimental grooves as they do with electro soul and, above all, deconstructing the original versions… On Stay High, Childish Gambino tackles the singing parts himself, unlocking a heavenly and futuristic beauty. The same goes for Run To Me to which Laura Mvula lends her sophisticated and precise vocals. Kiwanuka deserves to win prizes for his mystical remix of 13th Century Metal, a totally unrecognisable, borderline shamanic effort. – Marc Zisman
