The Shapeshifters‘ studio mastery and dedication to his craft has resulted in singles that stand up alongside golden era disco records as much as they sound fresh on dancefloors today. The Shapeshifters‘ rich relationship with Glitterbox has yielded instant classics like ‘Try My Love‘ and ‘Life Is A Dancefloor’, tracks that lyrically and musically epitomise the label’s ethos for preserving disco’s mission to uplift and empower. 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.
