For those of you looking forward to the return of VV Brown and are totes in love with her new single “Children”, you’ll be overjoyed to know that VV has put a free download of “The Playground” Mixtape live for all of you to savour and enjoy.  It’s quite different from what VV has done in the past, but do take a listen – it’s completley compelling and drops quite an interesting groove.

Here is what VV Brown had to say about the mixtape:

“Making an album is a process of experimenting and a lot of songs get lost, changed, redone or discarded. Touring makes you fall into a bubble, real life doesn’t exist and everything is exciting with a sense of appreciation for the shows and the people that come to see you play, but a plastic experience backstage. When I came of the road, locked in my studio and home again, this was my place of experimenting and finding myself again, but not the old self, a more mature experienced self. Before making a solid album I thought it would be amazing to make a mix-tape. A real window into the process of experimentation and creativity. Its a very low-fi attempt to show you where my head was at and where it was going up to a polished record.

The mixtape is called the Playground, centred around this concept about questioning the youth and where we are at as a generation much in line with what Im talking about overall in alot of the songs I’m singing. A twisted sense of nievity and innocence with an undertone of cynisism and debate about the mirage that we really need to see what really is going on.”

Let’s take a listen shall we?  Download it.  Love it.
