Here's some info about the band and the new EP:

Leeds based The Haggis Horns first hit the music scene in 1999 as both a band and a horn section, the Horns making their first recorded appearance on The New Mastersounds debut album that year. Featuring some of the finest brass and rhythm section players in the UK, The Haggis Horns musicians have played live and recorded with a host of music music artists including Mark Ronson, Jamiroquai, John Legend & the Roots, Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae, Lou Donaldson, Martha Reeves, The Cinematic Orchestra, Morcheeba, Roots Manuva, Finley Quaye, Lily Allen and Nightmares On Wax.

With two album releases on UK independent label First Word Records ("Hot Damn!" 2007 & "Keep On Movin" 2010), plus five singles and hundreds of live gigs worldwide, they've built a global following that unites soul boys, jazz brothers, funk sisters and break dancers in their love of Haggis Horns music.

Now in autumn 2015, their third album "What Comes To Mind" is getting a release on their own Haggis Records label. As a little teaser they're putting out an EP for summer featuring two new tracks from the album plus a previously unreleased remix of a Haggis Horns classic. On the A-side is "I can't Stop The Feeling" and features singer Lucinda Slim, who featured on the band's second album and gigs regularly with the band. The B-side is "Return Of The Haggis", a typical party funk instrumental the band are known for, a favourite in their live shows and features special guest percussionist Snowboy. Both tracks enlist the bass playing skills of Pete Shand of The New Mastersounds and have that classic mid-70's feelgood funk-soul-boogie vibe reminiscent of early Kool & The Gang, The Blackbyrds and The Average White Band. The final track on the EP is a
previously unreleased remix of their first single "Hot Damn!". Once again featuring the powerful vocals of singer John McCallum, this version adds some boogie/disco spice to the original's hard funk flavour.

Craig Charles (BBC6) - "Blistering funk of the highest order"

Keb Darge - "Beautifully crafted, sounding like a lost Roy Ayers/Donald
Byrd production, very nice"

DJ Lubi - "Hot funk, soul and boogie for the summertime! Fantastic!"

Simon Allen (The New Mastersounds) - This new Haggis Horns EP channels the uplifting disco-funk of Jamiroquai, Donald Bird, Roy Ayers, and The Average White Band. Listening in the sunshine will put a spring in your step, a glide in your stride and a smile on your face.

Snowboy - "World-class Funk from the real McCoy. Every track a future classic, and it's been an honour to contribute"

Track Name: I Can't Stop The Feeling (feat Lucinda Slim) - EP version
Yes it's really something, living in disarray
All night long we're fighting, like cats and dogs till the break of day

Really really really something
Honey I'm worn out
Really really really something
We never work it out

Today I'm moving out again, juts to move back in
You and me we're quite the pair, it never stops this splitting hairs

Really really really something
Honey I'm worn out
Really really really something
We never work it out

But baby when it's working, I lose my will
I can't stop the feeling, what a thrill

And when I'm on the verge of giving up, baby you lift me up
Shifting emotions, love and hate

Really really really something
Honey I'm worn out
Really really really something
We never work it out

But baby when it's working, I lose my will
I can't stop the feeling, what a thrill

What a thrill I'm on fire
I lose my will, pure desire

I lose my will, oh what a thrill
I lose my will, oh what a thrill
Track Name: Hot Damn! (feat John McCallum) - Haggis/JD73 Remix
