Just before Christmas, Texas caught everyone by surprise when they released Hi, featuring the New York hip hop veterans Wu- Tang Clan. Texas have collaborated before with the Wu- Tang rapper Method Man in an appearance at the 1998 Brit Awards, cementing a long friendship between the two very different music acts.

The press were unanimous with their praise for the new track. Music Week called the song “a slow-burn triumph”.“Brilliant,” proclaimed The I. “Let’s hope there’s more where this came from.”

The single is the title track for the band’s planned new album, due out later this year on a date yet to be announced.
