Idris Elba has shared a new garage track called L.U.V., featuring former All Saints member Shaznay Lewis.

The track has been released under the alias of Charlie Ayo, which is the name of Elba's character in new Netflix series 'Turn Up Charlie'. It features vocals from Lewis set alongside ad libs by Elba. 

L.U.V. has been released ahead of the premiere of 'Turn Up Charlie', which will be available on Netflix from March 15th. The comedy series sees Elba playing the role of Charlie Ayo, who is a struggling DJ down to his final chance to make it.
