We’re just ahead of the drop of Jarryd James’ highly anticipated debut album Thirty-One in September. Still so much time to go, but we have some good news!
James toured with Angus and Julia Stone during the summer, so this collab is no surprise. They certainly have great chemistry, musically-speaking. James’ falsetto and Stone’s sweet, yet husky vocals merge with the combination of piano and chilled out beats to create an all-round silky track. Co-produced by Joel Little, the track premiered Good Nights with Linda Marigliano a couple of days ago and has already being met with so much praise.
“She can’t be here tonight,” James said, before he performed the track on day two of Splendour In The Grass. “I’m just going to sing her parts in a female voice… even though I already do sing like that,” he joked.
Thirty-One is said to feature more collaborations with Malay, Pip Norman and Matt Corby. If you’re like me and can’t wait to listen to the rest of the album, pre-order it now. I know there’s quite a few keen beans out there. The two sold-out tours speak for themselves.
James is also well-aware of his rise to stardom. From his conversation with Veronica and Lewis, he seems humbled by the fact. “It was cool to see how people reacted to the stuff because I really wasn’t sure if people would embrace it or not but they seemed to and that was super nice.”
Thirty-One will be available on September 11th.
