Van Hunt's 2004 self-titled debut was hailed as "the perfect soundtrack for any seduction" by The New York Times while "Dust," one of its singles, earned him his first Grammy nomination. With On The Jungle Floor, he continued to elicit accolades for both his work and his performances. "Hunt's clearly got an R&B White Album in him.....On The Jungle Floor shows off Hunt's impressive range," said Rolling Stone while Daily Variety marveled "Not since Prince and the Revolution has a band been able to move so seamlessly between funk and rock with a captivating front man singing such well constructed songs." Earlier this year, Hunt won a Grammy award along with John Legend and Joss Stone for their cover of "Family Affair" on the 2006 Sly & the Family Stone tribute album, Different Strokes By Different Folks. As a prelude to the January release of Popular, a mini album of songs old and new are available on The Popular Machine.
