Out 17th April, "Nothing To Lose" is the debut single from Manchester six-strong soul collective and Tru Thoughts newest signee, Pieces of a Man. Pushing the sonic boundaries of a conventional soul band, the group creates immersive textured soundscapes, built with elements of hip-hop, funk, R&B, gospel choirs and neo-soul. Produced by legendary mastermind Zed Bias aka Maddslinky - who hailed it as "one of his favourite tracks ever", "Nothing To Lose" is the meeting of smooth R&B instrumentation and anthemic gospel, with a hook that elevates the song to the heavens.
Cited by the band as one of the most "soul-affirming recording sessions of their career", the track features a wealth of talent including Harleighblu (Tru Thoughts), Misha B (X-Factor), Amp Fiddler (George Clinton's Parliament and Funkadelic), Tyler Daley (Children Of Zeus), Andrew and Eloise Bridge — true Manchester gospel and R&B veterans, and up-and-coming Mancunian talent, Penny Nicholls.
The euphoric hook in "Nothing To Lose" was enthused after saxophonist Illya and vocalist Tolu attended a solidarity vigil with Manchester's LGBT community, marking the horrific mass shooting in a gay nightclub in Florida. "I was struck visually with how people held up their phone flashlights despite being vulnerable themselves", explains Illya.
