Mr Hudson & Kanye West   Supernova The first time I heard of Mr Hudson was on Kanye West’s utterly fantastic “Paranoid” (this single needs to blow the fuck up, by the way). Since then I’ve discovered the real Mr. Hudson and his band, The Library. Mr. Hudson is signed onto Kanye’s G.O.O.D. music label as well as the UK’s Mercury Records, where he has had more success there. Mr Hudson & The Library made their debut with A Tale of Two Cities, which “uses acoustic guitar interspersed with classically informed piano, soulful, Motown-inspired backing vocals and bass guitar, steelpan, electric drums & unusual rhythm patterns to create an expansive sound.” The album saw mostly positive reviews and its singles received national airplay on Jo Whiley and Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 shows.

Earlier today, Mr Hudson confirmed his sophomore album, Straight No Chaser would be released on August 3rd. Later, the album’s single “Supernova” had its world exclusive play on Zane Lowes’ Radio 1 show. On this first single, Kanye West returns the favor and gets on the autotune and sings his verse before disappearing, not to be heard from again. Like you would believe that. Luckily, Kanye West comes back two-thirds of the way into the song and steals the show; something that he does oh so well.

Listen to the radio rip below oh and make sure you pump the volume up on this one, the audio quality leaves a lot to be desired, natch.
