Speakers Corner Quartet Enlist Kae Tempest for New Song ‘Geronimo Blues’

    Speakers Corner Quartet have linked up with Kae Tempest for ‘Geronimo Blues’, the latest single from the South London collective’s upcoming record Further Out Than the Edge. Listen to it below.

    “It made sense to build the track around their vocals, as the poetry felt better suited to a more stripped back, cinematic feeling,” the group’s Biscuit explained in a press release. “The lyrics and themes are timeless. When we discussed it recently, we felt like the song’s texture is sand and the emotion is time.”

    “The relevance of this song comes around and around. All of the subject matter feels like it’s on loop,” drummer Kwake Bass said, with bassist Peter Bennie adding: “Yeah, I’m always surprised just how relevant the lyrics feels, no matter how many times I’ve listened to it.”

    Further Out Than the Edge is due out June 2 on OTIH Records. It includes the previously unveiled singles ‘Can We Do This?’ (featuring Sampha), ‘fix’ (with Tirzah), and ‘On Grounds’ (featuring Coby Sey).
