Trax Source reports:
The message behind the music is that no matter where you come from, on the dancefloor there’s acceptance and hope. Nothing could be clearer in ‘Finally Ready’, The Shapeshifters’ first collaboration with Grammy, Tony and Emmy Award-winning singer, actor, director, composer and playwright Billy Porter.
Co-written by Billy, ‘Finally Ready’ is a declaration of Pride, of breaking free from past traumas to take a chance on love.
In his signature style, The Shapeshifters’ cinematic strings and live horns give a suitably theatrical backdrop to Billy’s unmistakably powerful voice. Expertly crafted and brimming with emotion, the joyful message of ‘Finally Ready’ rings true through Billy’s lyrics, ready to create unforgettable dancefloor moments for years to come.
I first heard this track last month when Billy performed it from his home during a Glitterbox live-stream (excerpted in the final video below.)
Finally Ready is available for downloading today.
If things were normal, you’d be hearing this twice a day at every party this weekend. Dammit. The first clip is the production video out today.
