Joel Compass has unveiled debut single 'Run' - listen to it below.
Black Butter are like a crack team of archers, firing hit after hit into the heart of British pop music. Launching the careers of Rudimental, Kidnap Kid and Gorgon City (amongst others) the label recently stumbled across Joel Compass.
The rising London singer released his debut EP 'Astronaut' through the imprint earlier this year, gaining headlines and plaudits in the process.
Last night (September 25th) Zane Lowe unveiled the artist's debut single proper. Given a typically enthusiastic introduction, 'Run' opens with reverb laden piano chords before giving way to a beat which is part tribal and part UK garage.
Joel Compass' vocals are effortlessly smooth, with 'Run' representing one of his most complete projects yet.
Listen to it below.
'Run' is set to be released on November 11th. Catch Joel Compass supporting Rudimental at the following shows:
14 Bristol Academy
15 Bournemouth Academy
17 Birmingham Academy
