Speedometer, one of the most successful UK funk & soul bands of the last decade, attain the next level of their musical ascendancy with the release of this amazing new 45 single (and digital download)

'Lover & A Friend' is a fantastic reworking of the Eddie Bo classic and is taken from the forthcoming new album The Shakedown (FSRCD/LP082) which marks a step change in the groups sound and style, featuring more vocal led songs, a wider musical horizon, and the vocals of regular singer Ria Currie and guest Myles Sanko who voices blend just oh so beautifully on this deeply funkatious track!

Not only that, the track has it's own hipster styled promotional video - a first for the band and Freestyle Records! Check it out on You Tube, the Freestyle MySpace and Facebook pages and of course on Speedometers profile pages too!
