New Fire From An Old Flame (Miki Howard)
That Miki Howard is little known beyond her R&B fanbase is one of music’s great injustices. This track is from her fourth solo studio album – Femme Fatale – and was written by prolific songsmith Diane Warren.
It’s like a new fire from an old flame
Our love’s still shining after all the rain
It’s like a new touch but the feelings the same
And we’ve got something that will never change
Fun fact: Howard has only twice hit the US Hot 100 – with Love Under New Management (#89) and Ain’t Nobody Like You (#64).
