Gregory Porter has collaborated with Laura Mvula.
The jazz singer has recorded a duet with the 'Green Garden' hitmaker on a revamped version of his track 'Water Under Bridges', which will feature on the expanded deluxe edition of his critically acclaimed album 'Liquid Spirit'.
Speaking about the 43-year-old musician, Laura said: "It's like the stars align when he does his thing."
The duet was originally performed last year when the 28-year-old joined Gregory on stage for his iTunes Festival performance at Camden's Roundhouse in London, with the crowd's reaction inspiring them to re-record the track together to be released as a single.
Written by the 'Be Good (Lion's Song)' singer - who won the Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album last year - the track laments his struggles to get over broken relationships, and appears on the repackaged album alongside a collaboration with Jamie Cullum on the track 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood'.
Elsewhere on the record, additional content comes from Ben L'Oncle Soul and a remix from 20Syl, with a bonus DVD featuring footage from Gregory's performance with the Metropole Orchestra, conducted by Jules Buckley.
