Renato Bass Lover Wonderful new Music from a lifelong favourite, always joyful and soulful. A unique voice on the Rhodes electric piano, a Master of the synthesizer and of course those lush vocals! Warmly recommended without hesitation to new fans and long time followers alike. Superb bass work from the very lovely and supremely talented Yolanda Charles! ❤️🎵 Really, REALLY looking forward to the Jazz Cafe gig on 16 December 2023! Thank you, Mike! 🙏🏻

rockings14 It maybe a cliche, but Changes 2 has been worth the wait! Superb songwriting, musicianship, interesting arrangements and some great guests such as Omar and even John Culshaw! Like mining a musical vault, I am still digging out musical gems from this album, just like I did from the original Changes album, all those years ago! Buy this album if you can, I guarantee it is One In A Million and I Saw You In My Dreams, A Pharaoh's Dream of a track and groove! Magical stuff Mike! Favorite track: I Saw You In My Dreams (feat. Omar).

about

Changes 2, the pioneering new album by legendary vocalist, keys player and composer Mike Lindup.

A remarkably engaging body of work with wide-ranging elements, Changes 2 plots a course through upfront soul, deep funk, jazz riffs and disco vibes, tied together with the melodic magic and engaging lyrics for which Mike Lindup is widely known.

As an internationally renowned musician with decades of achievements and accolades, Mike Lindup’s outstanding career has taken him on a unique journey. With the band Level 42, he consolidated a place in music history with some of the greatest hits of the era, gaining a dedicated fanbase that see the band still touring to this day. As a soloist, the first Changes album and a notable release on Naim records, as well as his work with UK/Brazilian outfit Da Lata, have all allowed further development of a burgeoning creativity, now ultimately culminating in Changes 2 – an enthralling representation of where Mike Lindup is today.

Changes 2 features various excellent guest artists that demonstrate the diverse nature of the album, including the stellar vocals of Omar and Tony Momrelle, bass magic from Yolanda Charles, funk-fuelled dance remixes from Dave Lee and the inimitable Louis Vega and even an appearance from the comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw! All of these talented individuals enhance the project greatly, making valuable contributions to Mike Lindup’s distinguished work.

Speaking about the album, Mike Lindup says: “Changes – so many since I began recording this album, and as the saying goes, the one thing you can be sure of in this life. During the four years of making this album I’ve been reflecting on the world as I see it, the actors and actions on this grand stage of life, love, death, prejudice, politics, separation, longing, hopes and dreams. Musically, many of the seeds of these songs took hold a while ago and wouldn’t let go, but to be fulfilled they needed input and inspiration from my producers Toni and Mike, and the talents of the singers and musicians that are featured within. My wish is that some of these themes will resonate with you.”

With Gilles Peterson, undoubtedly one of the UK’s most influential DJ’s and tastemakers describing Mike Lindup as “one of his all-time favourite vocalists” and high praise from many other leading music broadcasters and writers, Changes 2 is set to become an important release in this year’s cultural diaspora, destined to be enjoyed by a multitude of discerning music lovers the world over.
