On his last promo single, featured on our pages back in March, Mr. Hudson promised to take a lucky woman across the dancefloor just like Fred Astaire. Between then and now, the London singer/songwriter and producer came to a realization that threw a kink into his plans; as he puts it in the opening lines of his latest effort, “Englishmen cannot dance / They think they can, but they can’t.” The inability to Move with music seems like quite a handicap, but Hudson has other allurements up his sleeve—foremost among them, the sensual falsetto he showcases over his and Eg White‘s shapeshifting production. Like what you’re hearing? Then keep it locked; this uniquely catchy jam isn’t attached to a larger set, but we’ll keep you posted on the G.O.O.D. Music signee’s plans as further details emerge.
