Electronic artist and DJ The Blessed Madonna has released new single “Shades of Love,” a collaboration with South African five piece The Joy. Like much of The Blessed Madonna’s music, its DNA is firmly rooted in the origins of House and Club culture, updated with a range of collaborators to create something contemporary.
Last year saw Parisian Electro-Pop artist Uffie provide vocals on the celebratory “Serotonin Moonbeams,” last week it was Chicago House artist Jamie Principle on “We Still Believe“ and on “Shades of Love” it’s Durban’s The Joy who bring vocal harmonies and melodies.
Speaking about the inception of the track, the artist writes:
‘Shades of Love’ is about the one thing that we all truly share in common as humans. We need to be loved. That might be a different kind of love for every person but it’s still love and it’s what ties us together.
Some of The Blessed Madonna’s work includes the remix project Club Future Nostalgia, her collaborative album with Dua Lipa, and remixes for the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Florence & The Machine and Elton John.
