Valentine’s day. The sale of romantic greeting cards, giant boxes of chocolates and red roses blossoms at this time of the year. Here at Louder Than War we have an alternate love message, free of charge, from soul legend Lee Fields to bring some deep sensual love to proceedings.
Lee Fields is the soul legend originally hailing from North Carolina who is about to release his latest album It Rain’s Love on April 5th via Big Crown Records. Lifted from the album is the sumptuous title track recorded here live at Diamond Mine Studios in New York City featuring just the right amount of elasticated bass lines, Bernard Perdie sounding breakbeat drums, slick Steve Cropper like guitar licks and of course Lee’s unmistakable elder statesman soul voice.
Lee ‘I wrote this one with Leon about how much love two people have for each other when it is right. Like, it’s raining love on me when you come around, the way the rain soaks you to the bone and covers you completely. It’s a visual of the amount of love and happiness people experience when they have a good thing between them. A picture of a feeling, when we get around each other, it rains love abundantly.’

May 2nd — Cambridge, UK @ The Junction
May 3rd — Manchester, UK @ Academy 3
