Mouth to Mouth

Album: A Perfect Contradiction (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song was inspired by Prince. Faith told The Daily Star: "I recorded that with Raphael Saadiq after we met at a Prince concert. So we honored that situation by paying Prince his dues in the studio."

    "I was inspired by early Prince and Chaka Khan records, cool late '70s and early '80s soul," she added. "I think we could all do with a bit of dance now."
