Taken from the forthcoming Big Crown label compilation Dear Sunny... Runaway produced by Tommy Brenneck (Charles Bradley, Menahan Street Band). Covers of Sunny and The Sunliners sweet soul classics. In 2017 Big Crown released a compilation of Sunny and The Sunliners music entitled Mr Brown Eyed Soul. Since that, they've reissued three of his albums in their original format and dropped five different 7 inches. Big Crown were huge fans of Mr. Ozuna before they started working together and they knew that our audience would love his music as much as they do. One thing they hadn’t anticipated was just how much of their own roster of artists were going to fall in love with his catalog. Big Crown came up with the idea to have everyone on the label cover a Sunny and The Sunliners tune and do a full length release as an homage to the man himself, Mr. Brown Eyed Soul, Sunny Ozuna. The full compilation is due out in the Fall of 2020 but this new 45 is a taste of what’s to come. Side A is a cover of Sunny's classic Smile Now, Cry Later done by The Shacks. Shannon’s gentle whispered vocals bring a whole new energy keeping to the tune keeping laid back and dreamy and Max’s production does justice to one of Sunny’s biggest tunes. Brainstory covers Runaway. The darling dears of Rialto properly turn this tune into something completely their own. Tommy Brenneck’s (Charles Bradley) production takes this one over top, a modern day slowie classic that is bound to find its way into DJ sets next to the staples of yesteryear
