Following the release of the feel-good R&B anthem, ‘Trippin’ Kara Marni is back with an epic soul rework and fierce visualizer of her new single.
Crafted by one of the most innovative and influential soul/jazz musicians of the 70s, the legendary Verdine White, a founding member of Grammy Award Winning group Earth, Wind & Fire, the rework embodies a whole new sound.
Verdine had the help of fellow Earth, Wind & Fire band member John Paris and GRAMMY-award winning producer Neal Pogue (Outkast), to rework “Trippin” with him. The three used live instrumentation at a studio in Los Angeles to deliver their distinctive soul jazz-infused sound, resulting in whole new energy and vibe to the track.
Speaking about Kara, Verdine says:
“I love Kara’s musical style. She’s an incredibly talented young lady and did a great job re-doing Amerie’s ‘1 Thing.’ Once I listened to ‘Trippin,’ it was an easy yes to collaborate—her voice is beautiful. I loved the record and wanted something we could all swing to. Working on this remix remotely was a different process but the energy and excitement from Kara made it seem as if she was in the room with us.”
Kara has an eventful year ahead, with her third EP confirmed for this spring.
