25-year-old London born chanteuse JONES releases her highly anticipated, debut album New Skin on October 7th on 37 Adventures.
New Skin has come together thanks to JONES’ work with some incredible studio talents; Lana Del Rey collaborator Justin Parker, Savages producer and xx mixer Rodaidh McDonald, Sam Smith co-writer Tourist, Two Inch Punch, XO, Oceaan and HONNE. Working with these disparate talents got JONES exploring new ground, but also hardened her vision of what her songs should really be: moments to lift people out of their lives, however difficult.
“What I want to put across is that it’s OK to be where you are, wherever you are, to learn from this. We all need the sad songs sometimes, but it’s good to have optimism too, to free your mind of things that make you unhappy,” says JONES about her melancholic but optimistic album.
The last 12 months have been a whirlwind for JONES who not only made her debut on Later…With Jools Holland but was also announced as one of Spotify's Spotlight Artists For 2016. Her previous single “Hoops” has been streamed over 5 million times and was playlisted at BBC 1Xtra. JONES’ current single “Melt” is a starkly modern, electronic soul offering which has already had over ½ Million streams and will have remixes from Lithuanian born producer/DJ Embody and Jay Prince.
