Growing up in a Caribbean household, ska was a staple for Kermit, and Derrick Morgan’s easy skanking ‘Seven Letters’ was a record that particularly resonated. Taking him back to childhood; mentally, emotionally and spiritually, Seven Letters is one of those songs that’s been a constant in Kermit’s life.
Originally a soul track written and recorded by Ben E. King, ‘Seven Letters’ follows a series of love notes sent to his girl over a week. In this new interpretation, Kermit’s decided enough is enough and he’s heading back home; his bags are packed, his boots laced up and he’s going down that long dusty road - this is the last time you’ll see him round here.
