Hercules & Love Affair’s Andy Butler is getting ready to drop his debut solo EP, “You Can Shine”, via his own label mr.intl. Here we have for you the EPs title track, a techno-soul cut featuring the vocal talents of Richard Kennedy. “Whilst Hercules has a collaborative, collective approach, Shine goes for a more direct approach, a stomping, uplifting club 12″ but it’s me so it will still have something of Hercules about it…I hope we’ve created something new. House is often soulful but you very rarely hear a big gospel-inflected voice paired with booming, doomy techno,” says Andy Butler.

The two-track “You Can Shine” EP follows a strong year for Hercules & Love Affair, which saw them released their third album “The Feast of the Broken Heart”. The record will arrive on vinyl on February 23, while the digital version will come out on March 16.
