about

Alice Russell’s “Breakdown” feat. Darondo has been revealed as the soundtrack to the much-anticipated Mad Men Season 7 US Trailers, currently notching up massive play counts online in the run-up to the final season premiere.
Blending high-stakes human drama with innate class, “Breakdown” feat. Darondo is the perfect partner for the alluring atmosphere of AMC’s Mad Men and its suspenseful final season teasers. Two trailers have been launched so far; officially only available in the US, pending further licenses, the first one can be watched worldwide here.
“Breakdown” feat. Darondo is an alternate version to the album track “Let Go (Breakdown)”, the latter having appeared on Russell’s acclaimed 2013 ‘To Dust’ LP. (This single package also includes the album cut as a B side.) In addition to the incredible, heartfelt tones of UK soul sensation Alice Russell, the alternate version of “Breakdown” was given an additional depth and lustre by the collaborative input of late, great soul vocalist Darondo, who sadly passed away in 2013 shortly after its original release. Despite being a relatively exclusive, underground track - having originally appeared as a digital bonus cut, and on a Record Store Day vinyl release - its viscerally soulful energy, unshakable hooks and spirited harmonies have seen this song bubbling up into the spotlight; previous high profile syncs have also included hit US drama The Blacklist.
