Denitia Odigie - Weekend (Studio Version)

Denitia first hit my radar when she teamed up with Sene for the Blah Blah Blah EP. Before that though, she released Songs For Sunsets (a 4-track EP of live recordings she laced with The Clubhouse in Brooklyn). Being that "Weekend" was one of the standouts, the BK songstress decided to re-record the track and give it a proper studio sound. Take a listen after the jump (where I've also included her thoughts on the song itself and her upcoming solo album Air, Light. Shouts to OKP on the premiere.

I re-recorded weekend because there were so many colors and tones there that I wasn’t finished exploring. I feel it was something of a prototype experiment: the acoustic version was the original, the birth if you will. The live version was “does it play well with others?” and this version, I feel, is my most thorough expression of the song, it feels complete. I think I’m finished recording it now. Ha.

This song is intended for my upcoming solo album: Air, Light. Nolan Thies is one of my main production partners, we produced this one together. It also features some of my favorite people to make music with. Brad Williams on electric guitar, is a vintage R&B expert/maniac. Sly5thAve is a moniker for Sylvester Onyeijiaka, a brilliant multi-saxophonist, who played keyboard and synthesizers on this song. Nolan Thies, mix engineer and supremely indie dream-rocker, played electric bass groove sounds. Cooper Heffley, a rhythm animal/beast and super well-toured drummer, laid the beat.
