Emma-Jean Thackray will release new album 'Yellow' on July 2nd.
The London based jazz composer and band leader has constructed her next opus, with a full album landing this summer.
Blending left field jazz elements with club tropes to forge something truly new, Thackray's work is never less than riveting.
New album 'Yellow' is out on July 2nd, with the composer commenting:
“It’s a record about togetherness, the oneness of all things in the universe, showing love and kindness, human connection. I approached the record by trying to simulate a life-changing psychedelic experience, an hour where we see behind the curtain to a hidden dimension, where the physical realm melts away and we finally see that we are all one.”
Set to be released via her own Movementt imprint, the album is led by gorgeous new single 'Say Something' - opening with glimmers of Rhodes piano, it leans on that hi-hat shuffle before Emma-Jean Thackray uses her voice to elevate the song.
A plea towards communication, it's a powerful introduction - tune in now.
