The Blessed Madonna has teamed up with house music pioneer Jamie Principle for a new single, ‘We Still Believe’. It follows last year’s ‘Serotonin Moonbeams’, which marked Marea Stamper’s first solo track in half a decade. Listen to ‘We Still Believe’ below.
“I wrote and recorded a version of this song that shares a name with the party alone in my attic over a decade ago, writing the lyrics on the back of a record sleeve and recording them into my blackberry under a blanket,” Stamper said of ‘We Still Believe’ in a press release. “I distorted my own vocals on the original, but imagined that the song would someday be performed by Jamie Principle, arguably the first real writer in house music and my hero. Eventually years later, Jamie and I met and became beloved friends. Jamie kindly agreed to re-record the song I wrote for him before I knew him and here we are, writing the next chapter together and doing it the way I imagined it all those years ago. Soulwax chimed in on the final version and the result is absolutely fresh.”
