JASMINE THOMPSON RELEASES NEW SINGLE
NEW EP Colour OUT MARCH 29th
Those who have ever faced a tempestuous relationship will find solace in Jasmine Thompson’s brilliant new song titled, loyal, off her new EP Colour – out March 29th.
In loyal, Thompson sings of the relationship that had ended just before she was reunited with Eg White. When they’d started writing it a year earlier, Loyal was a song about trust issues within that same
relationship. “We didn’t trust each other,” Jasmine reports, “and as it turned out, we both had good
reason. Also, he owes me £600.” Loyal, in the end, became something rather pensive: “I’m still
loyal to the person I met at the beginning, who made me really excited and gave me butterflies,”
The Londoner was born to an English father and Chinese born mother. “Having one immigrant parent always provides a unique perspective growing up, a sense of one foot in two different worlds” says Thompson. At just 18 years old, she might be a new artist to many but she’s already connected to an audience of millions around the world, who have enjoyed her originals and cover uploads, amassing over a billion streams across the various streaming services. Perhaps more impressive than the numbers on her streams, views and socials is her seemingly ageless soulfulness. Her voice is almost otherworldly, floating over the music like something adrift on a dark ocean. There is a loneliness that simply none of her peers can convey and listeners never knew they needed. With the growth she has shown with her songwriting on this new release it’s hard to see a ceiling for this prodigious talent.
Mark this as one to watch in 2019.
