Globally renowned duo Yolanda Be Cool release ‘No More Sorrow’ on Sweat It Out, transforming a 60s Soul vocal into the feel-good anthem we all need right now! Well-versed in the art of sampling, Yolanda Be Cool continue to light up a dance-floor with their re-imagined hits, sharing “we love taking old songs that people either don’t know, or at least, don’t know well, and recontextualising them in a way that shines light on how good the original was but also, opens up the original to a new audience”.
‘No More Sorrow’ seamlessly combines a heavy-hitting, grooving bass line with nuanced piano chords, which explodes into a warm synth pattern and is all topped off by the grandiose R&B vocal stylings from Irma Thomas’ 1964 classic hit.

Sharing their excitement for the release of the upbeat re-make, the duo also detail, “When we came across ‘Breakaway’ by Irma Thomas – from 1964 – we couldn’t believe that it hadn’t been a huge hit back then nor could we believe that until now, it hadn’t been sampled. We were lucky enough to be able to test it for many months prior to lockdown and saw its “instantness” on the d-floor so we are super stoked to have it finally coming out on our beloved Sweat It Out”.
Well-respected for creating uplifting, dance-floor ready House music, the duo just entered in 2020 in style with this new release, and demonstrates once again the whole extent of his talent.
