Christmas comes early for fans of Scottish band Texas as they release a new single, “Hi,” which features friends Wu-Tang Clan. The video – directed by Fenn O’Meall – stars up and coming British actor Kadeem Ramsay (Top Boy, Small Axe. “Hi” offers a taste from Texas’ forthcoming album, the band’s first release since 2017. It’s also the first new music from Wu-Tang Clan in three years.
“Hi” finds a soulful Sharleen Spiteri nestled next to boisterous raps from RZA and Ghostface Killah over a cinematic backdrop of lush beats and acoustic guitar. It was RZA who suggested the reunion after meeting up with Sharleen in Glasgow, Scotland last year. The band’s previous Wu-Tang collaboration had resulted in a groundbreaking remix of their 1997 mega-hit “Say What You Want” and a show-stealing performance with Method Man at the 1998 BRIT Awards.
