Having launched the band during the chaos and adversity of the pandemic, their new single looks to unleash positive vibes upon the masses on the back of 2020.

‘Slow Down (remix)’ is a reimagined version of a track originally released by UB40 on their 2008 album twentyfourseven, featuring Crown Heights co-founder Marvin Priest.

Upbeat, energetic and full of groove, harmonised vocals intertwine with vibrant horns and an energetic rhythm for a track that is certain to have you up and dancing with the first listen.

A downright fun track, Crown Heights’ new single is a very promising taste of their debut album.
