Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter/producer Gwen Bunn has teamed up with R&B legend Faith Evans for her new single “Between the Lines.” The mellow tune samples Evans’ 1995 classic “Soon As I Get Home” and also includes a guest from Evans herself.
“This song was special for many reasons. The song is about longing for someone and knowing that y’all are better together than apart regardless of the ups and downs,” Bunn explains. “Legendary moment because Faith doesn’t do many features and her being willing was an honor.”
Evans adds, “Gwen’s A&R, Jermi Thomas is fam and he reached out to let me know that Gwen wanted me to work on one of her records. When they sent me the track, I was honored that she sampled my song, ‘Soon As I Get Home’ and wanted me to be on it. I went in and laid backgrounds, ad-libs and wrote a new verse…and here we are! The timing of ‘Between The Lines’ coming now is so crazy, especially because it’s also the same week as the 25th Anniversary of my classic single. I think it’s amazing to see a dope new artist like Gwen introducing my music to this generation’s R&B fans. She’s next!!!”
“Between the Lines” is the follow-up to Bunn’s previous single “Don’t Go.” Both songs will appear on her upcoming project that is slated to arrive in 2021.
