CHOON OF THE DAY: "EVERYTHING" - Lisa Stansfield + Top 20 Greatest Lisa Stansfield Gems


Lisa Stansfield's euphoric new single "Everything" is here! The track heralds the release of her brand new studio album "Deeper" and brings us on a somewhat sentimental journey to the "Affection" days with its slick kaleidoscope of British soul, funk and dance pop. To celebrate the release of the song I am taking you back through the ever so luscious back-catalogue of tunes from the Manchester diva with my very subjective selection of her 20 greatest tracks to date.
