212 – The Brand New Heavies – You Are The Universe (1997)
Written by Andrew Levy and Siedah Garrett
Produced by The Brand New Heavies
Label – FFRR/London

It feels like a liaison that was sadly, far too brief, but the combination of British acid jazz/soul band The Brand New Heavies with American singer songwriter Siedah Garrett left us with an excellent album (“Shelter”) and this stunning single. Respected for co-writing “Man In The Mirror” with Michael Jackson, and co-singing “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You”, Garrett delivers a euphoric, uplifting message, backed by the band’s cool flowing groove.
