TMF exclusive: Paul Rudd featuring Jaki Graham

80s diva Jaki Graham has collaborated with dance music DJ Paul Rudd to remake her classic 1980’s single 'Set Me Free', set for release on 14 May. 'Set Me Free' was a top ten hit for Graham in 1986, peaking at #7 in the UK Charts and at #15 in the US Billboard Dance Charts the same year.

Graham had six top 20 UK singles throughout the 1980’s and 90’s and had a #1 hit on the US Billboard Dance Charts with 'Ain’t Nobody' in 1994.

This marks the beginning of a very busy year for the UK-based vocalist. With a TV documentary of her life in production for broadcast later this year, a new studio album due for release in the fourth quarter, as well as the release of her autobiography in the autumn, 2012 has much in store for Graham.

Rudd explains the making of 'Set Me Free 2012':

"There were so many great sounds from the 80s that I grew up with and they just fitted with what I have been trying to achieve lately. I had a few tunes in mind and then when I thought about the string of Top Ten hits Jaki had in the 80s, I immediately turned my attention to her music. 'Set Me Free' was the standout one for me and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. When Jaki got into the studio to record, it turned a good track in to what I believe could be a huge summer anthem," he said.
