Following closely on the heels of “Witness Me” with Stormzy and Shawn Mendes, Jacob Collier will be heading back to London for a hometown performance at The O2.
The 5-time Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer has announced his biggest European Tour to date, performing in iconic venues including The O2 in London.
Next Autumn, following the release of his highly anticipated (already Grammy-nominated) album ‘Djesse Vol. 4’, Collier and his illustrious band will traverse the continent on a 22-date run produced by Live Nation.
Commencing in Portugal on 2nd November at Lisbon’s Sala Tejo, followed by shows in Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and France, culminating in the UK with a special hometown show at The O2 in London.
The announcement comes after the release of Collier’s new single “Witness Me”, featuring Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes, British rap titan Stormzy and 19-time Grammy-winning gospel legend Kirk Franklin, for a heart-warming ode to the power of empathy. Heralded ‘The World’s Hottest Record’ by BBC Radio 1 this week, you can watch the visualiser video here, which features exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from the official music video, coming Tuesday 28th November.
“Witness Me” is the fourth glimpse into Collier’s next installment of his genre-defying quadruple album project DJESSE, which, alongside previously released singles “Little Blue (feat. Brandi Carlile)”, “Wherever I Go (feat. Lawrence & Michael McDonald)”, “WELLLL” and Grammy-nominated “Never Gonna Be Alone (feat. Lizzy McAlpine & John Mayer)”, gives a fascinating insight into the upcoming album’s extraordinary depth and range.
In the midst of working on Djesse, Collier began turning his concert audiences into sprawling, improvised choirs. While conducting the crowd across the globe, from rock clubs to the Lincoln Center, and even festival fields like Bonnaroo and Glastonbury, droves of fans have all been united in rousing harmony, furthering his guiding belief that everyone in this world has a voice, and is a musician. Having recorded each of his 90+ audience choirs, over 150,000 voices from around the world play a vital role in the story and creation of Djesse Vol. 4.
