New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Steam Down, whose fiery mix of afro-swing, grime, jazz, and future soul has led them to become one of the London music scene's most-talked-about groups, have released their new version of Wayne Shorter's "Etcetera" featuring vocals by Afronaut Zu. "Wayne Shorter has long been my favourite saxophonist and composer in jazz," says Steam Down's Ahnansé. "Reworking 'Etcetera' from his legendary Blue Note catalogue is a childhood dream come true."

The song is the fifth single to be released from Blue Note Re:imagined, a forthcoming collection of classic Blue Note tracks re-imagined by a selection of the UK scene's most exciting young talents. Previous singles include Poppy Ajudha's rework of Herbie Hancock's "Watermelon Man," Skinny Pelembe's take on Andrew Hill's "Illusion," Ezra Collective's cover of Wayne Shorter's "Footprints," and Jorja Smith's update of St Germain's "Rose Rouge."
