our fave softly-spoken country-soul American auteur producer (& winner of our album of the year 2013 for 'big inner') hooks up with the hugely talented English chanteuse to lay down a set of incredible covers together.

These are big songs tackled with zero insecurity & ego, the band fiery & loose, taking the pressure & throwing away conventionality. 'Gentlewoman, Ruby Man' is in some ways a straightforward duets record, of a kind that has fallen out of fashion - two separate entities meeting to record a collection of great songs as a one-off, Marvin & Tammi-style. In other ways it’s a more unique animal, less typical back & forth duets, more subtle & complimentary spotlight sharing. Flo’s rich, timeless, ethereal voice is complimented by White’s honeydrop vocal caresses and his label-cum-production house Spacebomb. from 'Grease' (1978), to a spine-tingling take on the title track from James Blake’s 'The Colour In Anything' (2016), these 10 tracks feed the heart & move the body.
