Share

Following on from last year’s smash hit ‘All 4 Love’, Toolroom’s Mark Knight is back with quite possibly his biggest release yet, pulling out all the stops and promising to make 2021 his year.

A long time in the making, ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’ is a taste of the upcoming debut album ‘Untold Business’ by the world-renowned DJ and producer. The single features vocals from the incredibly talented queen of Soul, Beverley Knight and the brilliant London Community Gospel Choir, who together bring a powerful message of positivity, solidarity and hope.

Known for releasing quality club records, this release sees Mark Knight go back to his roots, reprising the sounds and records that made him the DJ he is today. Delving through his extensive collection of classic Funk, House, Soul and Disco records from the 1970’s and 80’s for inspiration, ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’ is ripe with nostalgic vibes, delivered with Mark’s own authentic take. Primarily influenced by the seminal modern-day classic’s ‘Optimistic’ and ‘The Pressure’ by The Sounds of Blackness, Mark Knight has created a timeless piece.

Mark Knight “I wanted to write a song of hope as we come out of this incredibly tough time. I feel that musicians and producers have a responsibility to provide the soundtrack to people’s lives, and with this glimmer of hope on the horizon, I wanted this song to be a moment of positivity for the future ahead. From a string section, to the 14-piece London Community Gospel Choir, to the incomparably brilliant Beverley Knight on lead vocals – I worked with some incredible musicians on this record. It was a mammoth production, but something I wanted to do that would last the test of time. ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’: The next single from my forthcoming album ‘Untold Business’ dropping this June.”

Quote from Beverley Knight: “It was wonderful to be asked to vocal this uplifting energetic and hopeful track by Mark Knight. I am by nature an optimist and I truly believe the message ‘Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’ which made it so easy to seriously blow! It was great to be joined by the legendary London Community Gospel Choir who introduced the gospel sound to the UK 40 years ago. Pure joy!”

Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’ will be released on Beatport exclusive promo and streaming platforms on April 23rd / Full release on May 7th 2021 on Toolroom Records.
