Joe Armon-Jones drops first single from new album
On new single Yellow Dandelion, Joe Armon-Jones connects with LA hip-hop and soul luminary Georgia Anne Muldrow (Brainfeeder, Stones Throw). It’s the first track to be taken from his phenomenal second album Turn To Clear View.
Yellow Dandelion boasts a warm, winding groove, bolstered by Armon-Jones’ solo magic on the keys. As with every Joe Armon-Jones release, it’s an intricate deep-dive of sound, synths and keys, this time with Muldrow’s textured vocals as the guiding force.
Turn To Clear View sees Armon-Jones channel the diversity of the ascendant scene that surrounds him, ranging from character-fuelled raps to Afrobeat-influenced jams. It builds on the celebrated keys player’s singular vision, exhibiting a sound with flourishes of R&B, hip-hop and p-funk, and featuring regular bandmates Oscar Jerome, Moses Boyd and Nubya Garcia. Co-produced with longtime collaborator Maxwell Owin, the record has a carefully-plotted feel that reflects their meticulous approach. The duo carefully perfected every touch, with Armon-Jones ever-present throughout the mixing and mastering processes.
Yellow Dandelion is out now. Turn To Clear View is released on CD, vinyl and digital on September 20th.
