Naughty Boy takes it Home on new single

When I say "Naughty Boy", what do you think of?

Alright, what do you think of after you think of The Life Of Brian?

If you're familiar with the London-based producer and his "oeuvre", you'll probably be thinking: Mid-tempo, minor key pop with a bruised-but-beautiful chorus courtesy of Emile Sande or Sam Smith or some other top flight warble-meister.

If you are unfamiliar with his "oeuvre", you're probably still thinking of Monty Python, let's be honest.

Anyway, those in the former category are in for a treat, for Naughty has just unleashed a new single, called Home, featuring a brand new Roc Nation artist Romans. And what have the Romans ever done for us? Well, apart from the aqueduct, the sanitation and the roads, they've recorded an angelic vocal about pining for the safety and comfort of your own home.

It's quite, quite beautiful.

"Ultimately, I feel like I make soul. "That's what I do best," Mr Boy told Radio 1 enthusiasm cyclone, Zane Lowe, as he premiered the record earlier tonight.

"I wanted to separate myself from everyone else," he added. "You get caught up in this British wave of music, which is amazing, but I think Naughty Boy has to stand alone, and this song solidifies that."

Get him, eh?

Home is out on 13 July, as part of (oh joy) a deluxe reissue of his debut album, Hotel Cabana.
