Jorja Smith – falling or flying

Jorja Smith prove’s she in control with her sophomore studio album, falling or flying. “I feel like making the album brought me back home,” she said in a statement. “Where you’re from is where you get your powers, and that’s why I’m so grateful I could make this with DAMEDAME* – they still have their roots in the ground from back home. And we had so much fun making this.” She added, “I like this world that I’ve just come into. And I’m still figuring things out. Always figuring things out. This is the first time I’m putting stuff out there that I can connect with right now.”

Black Pumas debut “Mrs. Postman,” the second single off their upcoming album Chronicles of a Diamond, which drops October 27. “JaRon and I used to get together on afternoons and make hip-hop beats for fun, and ‘Mrs. Postman’ ended up coming out of one of those sessions,” guitarist/producer Adrian Quesada shares in a statement. Eric Burton adds, “I was partly thinking about how much joy the postmen can bring to people’s lives, but I also wanted to encourage the people in my family and anyone else working a blue-collar job. I know from firsthand experience how arduous it can be, and I wanted to send a message saying, ‘I still see all the beauty and light in you.’”

TOBi – “Someone I Knew”

TOBi preps for his upcoming album with the newest single “Some I Knew,” which the artist describes as “one of the most important songs I’ve ever done.” He continues, “The history behind it, the depth of the stories. Even the accuracy of the sample 50 years after it was originally sung. I’ve always wanted to have my own version of a Florence Welch record. This is what music is about to me. To capture the feeling of timelessness that we wanted on PANIC. I wanted to make a song that would make anybody want to wake up and take agency over their life. That is the story of my journey not just as an artist but a human.”
