While the original, which Mary Anne Hobbs chose as BBC Radio 6 Music’s Track of the Week, was an atmospheric and primary instrumental piece, “Credo, Pt. II” features a beautiful melody and lead vocal by longtime collaborator Coco O. with whom August has toured the world with as musical director and pianist in her project Quadron. This new collaboration was initiated by Prxjects, a culture laboratory launched by Mercedes-Benz.
“Coco's voice has been a huge part of my life for the past ten years since I started playing with Quadron. It was my dream to have her be part of the album and she co-wrote the song "Credo". When we got the chance, we made a whole new song out of the vibe on "Credo" and Coco sings on it - the result is "Credo Pt. II".“
August Rosenbaum explains.
