The album, due March 18, has been set up by an Apple MacBook commercial featuring Naim's "New Soul," a sweet, sunny slice of horn-accented pop delivered with a noticeable accent. But while it's lovably lightweight, another song might garner more attention: Naim's minimalist, loungey piano treatment of Britney Spears' "Toxic," delivered with varied, intoxicating voices.
