Originally released in 1985, the track appeared on the US jazz vocal group’s album American Eyes, but has since gathered a raft of new listeners, as quirk of the YouTube algorthm helped it accumulate almost a million plays.

Intrigued, like countless others, by its siren song of close harmonies, sax flourishes and ambient rainforest percussion, Be With and Emotional Rescue will release the track alone on a 10″, backed by a remix from kindred spirit Arp, whose brilliant 2018 album Zebra shares a similar sense of adventure.
