Last week, I (hopefully) put you on to Birmingham’s Laura Mvula and her totally left field but incredibly catchy “You Work For Me.” The track is from Guy Ritchie’s Man From U.N.C.L.E. and was hand-picked by the director himself to accompany the film.
Unfortunately, Mvula’s retro, John Barry-esque number was not available to purchase anywhere despite being featured prominently in ads for the film. Well, the wait is over…

While I previously referred to the track as part of the “trip hop,” I’m officially on the fence after making such a bold statement. Instead, I’ll just say that Mvula’s contribution to the Man From U.N.C.L.E. is appropriately period and sounds like it was authentically produced in the era that the film takes place (the 1960s, for those of you out of the loop).
