New Song: Day 26 – ‘Lose Control (‘Silk’ Cover)’

Published: Monday 16th Jun 2014 by David


Day 26 take a step in the right direction today, unveiling the latest song pulled from their forthcoming effort ‘The Return.’

A cover of Silk‘s 1993-released ‘Lose Control‘, the number sees the fellas unleash the vocal magic that once placed them atop R&B’s food chain, and- if paired with the right creatives- will see them outperform themselves with their comeback album.

An impressive offering from the five-piece below…

See what we mean?

Sure, while it may be tempting for ’26‘ to release cuts akin to the boozy club-geared cuts the loud minority are enamoured by, one needn’t look any further than Tamar Braxton‘s ‘Love & War‘ and Miguel‘s ‘Kaleidoscope Dream’ to see that grown, sexy & contemporary is the way to go!

As it stands, the group’s styling and photography goes a long way to age them, making their bid to pull in younger audiences an uphill struggle.

However, if their suits, ties and dark imagery  is replaced with Jeff Kim-esque styling and GQ style promo shots, winning over the 20-somethings while pulling in the ‘grown & sexy’ would soon see that uphill struggle become a walk in the park!

What they should be aiming for on a sonic tip?

Your thoughts?

    Have you having a laugh here, Day 26 brings out a BS song called BS which flopped & now they doing a cover of Silk. If I wanted to listen to Lose Control, I would listen to Silk. When are these people going to learn if you return, you should of a plan. falling back on a cover because of your BS song flopping is a joke. Did they not say in TGJ interview their coming back to take over the world(this reminds me of another reality group).When their EP is released in a few weeks & flops, reality may set in we are in 2014 not 2008.

    Personally they need a mixture of both. Fun & s***. Like FIAD
    Album. That album was classic sonically it blended both genre’s perfectly.

    Perfect Day26 record would be:

    1. Imma Put It on her
    2. Stadium Music
    3. Dizzy
    4. Your Heels
    5. So Good
    6. Bipoloar
    7. Perfectly Blind
    8. Co-Star
    9. One Night Only
    10. This is what it feels Like
    11. Love Faces
    12. Truth is A Lie
    13. Girlfriend
    14. Come With Me
    15. If It Wasnt For You

    That would be a sonically classic album.
