Porter - New album Liquid Spirit out now

Grammy-nominated jazz singer Gregory Porter has released a video for his new album track Hey Laura, and you can watch it on RTÉ TEN. Trust us, it will do you good.

Hey Laura is taken from Porter's new album, Liquid Spirit, his first for the legendary Blue Note Records.

Porter says: "I firmly consider myself a jazz singer, but I enjoy blues, black southern soul, and gospel. Those elements make their way inside my music. And I've always heard them in jazz."

You can watch the video by clicking the link above on your left.

Liquid Spirit, Porter says, is partly inspired by his encounters with the new fans he has met on tour who ask him, "Where have you been?" or "How come I've never heard you before?"

"Not saying that I am 'what is', says Porter, "but I think maybe what I'm doing is what people actually want to hear. There are some people who want that liquid spirit - a soulful, thoughtful sound - and they haven't been getting it."
