The Floacist f/ Raheem Devaughn – “Start Again” | New Music

Back with more soulful, jazzy spoken word vibes, The Floacist calls on Raheem Devaughn to “Start Again” – the opening track from her upcoming album Floetry Re:Birth.

“Raheem is a joy to work with… he is a master of his craft and technique when approaching vocal arrangements and recordings,” she says of the Grammy nominated Washington DC native. Devaughn previously worked with Floetry on the sensual “Marathon,” and more recently “Keep It Going” from Floacist’s prior solo album Floetic Soul in 2010.

“I believe deeply in the ethos of this song,” Floacist says of their latest collaboration, which bears a few melodic hints of Marvin Gaye‘s classic ‘I Want You’. She explains, “One must know how to ‘Start Again’ and find the peace in it, as change is the only thing promised in life.”

With other guest features on the album including Lalah Hathaway and Musiq Soulchild, Floetry Re:Birth is out on November 9th – preorder now available via iTunes.
