Joan Armatrading is a titan of UK music enduringly. 'Already There' as a credible pop song is just perfect. From Consequences to be released on Friday three years on from Not Too Far Away.

Maybe go back too and listen to Courtney Pine's take on Armatrading classic 'Love and Affection' on the saxophonist's Back in the Day album as well as her original treatment on 1976's Joan Armatrading (A&M). Join the dots past and present instrumentally and vocally to enhance the pleasure as the release of the new album this weekend approaches.
