Performed by fast-rising R&B singer Tiana Major9 and released on Motown Records UK, the song “Silly Games” is a single from the upcoming official soundtrack to Small Axe, the British anthology film series, created and directed by Steve McQueen. The track is, in fact, a rework of Janet Kay’s Lovers Rock classic of the same title.
In the visual posted above, Tiana can be seen performing the song live in-studio. Commenting on this project, she says: “‘Silly Games’ by Janet Kay played a huge part in changing a generation by pushing the culture forward, as well as making the dream of creating timeless Black British Art a reality. To see the stories based on the lives of my people on a global scale, means so much to me.”
Small Axe Soundtrack arrives June 12.
