Eric Turner Reteams With Tinie Tempah and Lupe Fiasco For New Single

(EMI) Best known for his work with Tinie Tempah on "Written In The Stars" and with Lupe Fiasco on "Break The Chain" singer-songwriter Eric Turner has teamed with the two rappers for "Angles & Stars," the lead single from Turner's forthcoming Capitol Records debut album.

Produced by Eshraque "iSHi" Mughal ("Written In The Stars"), the song serves as a cautionary meditation on people's fascination with stardom.

"iSHi and I wanted to do something with the 'Written In The Stars' sound, but a little bit darker," says Turner, who recently shot the video for "Angels & Stars" in Los Angeles with Lupe Fiasco and Tinie Tempah. "I've been working a lot of with Tinie and with Lupe, and iSHi and I decided we wanted to do a song with both Tine and Lupe on it. It would be one of the first songs where you got one of the biggest rappers in America together with the biggest rapper in England. We thought that would be an interesting thing."

Indeed, "Angels & Stars" features majestic piano progressions, pounding drums, fiery lyrics from Lupe and Tinie and soaring vocals from Turner. The song is currently available on all DSPs (with the video to premiere on VEVO on February 3) and sets the stage for Turner's forthcoming debut album on Capitol Records, which is slated for release in mid-2012.
