Drummer Otis Brown III premiered his rendition of Shania Twain’s “You’re Still The One,” the newest single from his forthcoming The Thought Of You LP on Wax Poetics today. Gretchen Parlato blessed the track with her vocals as she easily navigates through the song’s tricky 7/8 meter. Wax Poetics shed some light into OBIII’s new single:

“Drummer Otis Brown III comes with a new album on Revive/Blue Note that evokes the classic sounds of the storied jazz label yet touches on something very modern as well. Brown, who played with Esperanza Spalding, brings on board a crew of artists to help him, namely pianist Robert Glasper, trumpeter Keyon Harrold, saxophonist John Ellis, and bassist Ben Williams, and singers Bilal, Nikki Ross, and Gretchen Parlato, who flips the Shania Twain song ‘You’re Still the One,’ heard here. The track is produced by bassist and Glasper alum Derrick Hodge.”
