Multi-award winning all-brother band Four Kornerz are to release their new single Superstar on Monday 2 May, 2011.
This is the band’s first officially release since their ground-breaking independent album release Soulectric (2007) which included the hit singles Clap Clap and Gonna Make It. This latest masterpiece from the London based-quartet dons the familiar leads from Deji, the eldest of the four brothers.
Known for their inspirational lyrics, Four Kornerz once again adopt the same stance but unusually from a female’s perspective. “The song was inspired by a lot of things. A large part of the story behind this song is based on the unrealistic body-type expectations mounted us in today’s popular culture,” says Deji. “The lyrics are more specific to women as I think the pressures on them are more extreme from things like size zero, cellulite and botox to perfect skin and teeth. However, both men and women can embrace the universal message in the song; Celebrating how awesome and wonderful you are!”
Superstar is produced by Scsi, part of the Four Kornerz production team, and draws influences from the Soul artists of the Motown era as well more modern chart toppers like Bruno Mars and Jamiroquai.
The band will feature the new song alongside sneak-peeks at other material from a forth-coming project at their first major London concert since 2007 on Wednesday 27 April 2011. Support will be from songstress Dionne Reid and popular Electro-Grime artist Guvna B. On the night, fans will also be given the opportunity to download a free exclusive Four Kornerz track.
Four Kornerz live in Concert takes place on Wednesday 27 April at 229 The Venue, 229 Great Portland Street, London W1W 5PN. Starts 7pm. Tickets £10 (+ booking fee) in advance, more on the door. For more information and to book tickets, visit: www.fourkornerz.com
“We are taking a different approach towards the Four Kornerz brand. It’s not just music but a whole creative process which will see us enter into other fields like a digital graphic novel which will accompany the Superstar release. More on that little venture soon,” hints Deji.
