London future-soul artist Jodie Abacus has been there and done that.
An artist with incredible breadth of experience, he uses this to his advantage, focussing on elements of his own life in the process.
New single ‘You’re Crazy’ loops those Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye influences round, turning it into 21st century soul.
It’s about a failed relationship, but Jodie is able to look back with a smile on his face. He explains:
“Ever had a crazy ex?? No? Just me then! I have a primary rule: never let your muses know that a song you wrote is about them…especially the crazy ones.”
Really Really Really excited to announce the premiere of my brand new single SKIN on @thelineofbestfit it’s OUT NOW go click on my bio to hear my new release as we get ever so closer to my Debut album…..
‘Skin’ is a straight-up love song, written and sung from the heart of Abacus. For the record, Jodie teamed up with multi-instrumentalist, producer, DJ and songwriter Hight who produced the track. Hight has worked with artists from the likes of John Newman, Lily Allen, AlunaGeorge to Felix Jaehn, Yxng Bane & Tom Walker.
The release also comes with the announcement of his forthcoming debut LP titled ‘Take This And Grow Flowers’. The album was inspired by “the worst, mental, fuck-with-my-head year” which saw the singer break-up with a girlfriend of five years and suffer a near-death experience with pneumonia. Jodie now lives with the attitude that he “must be able to take shit and grow flowers”.Over the coming months, Jodie Abacus will deliver one more track from the album – with a full LP release penned for Friday 19th October 2018.
