“…an exuberant, nostalgic mash of falsetto funk harmonies,
disco grooves and eccentric electropop textures.”
“… cinematic blend of synths and strings that swim effortlessly beneath Jungle’s euphoric group vocals…”
July 28, 2021—“Truth,” the latest track from British songwriting and production duo Jungle, debuts today accompanied by an official music video; listen to/share the song HERE and watch/share the video HERE. Premiering as a “First Play” on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 Show, this uplifting track appears on the duo’s highly anticipated new album, Loving In Stereowhich is set for release August 13 via AWAL.
Jungle’s co-founder Tom McFarland states, “‘Truth’ is another moment on the record which came very quickly and naturally. It was the most different sounding thing we had made at the time and for that reason couldn’t ignore it. For us it’s about youth, love, and trust. The feeling of finding someone who means more than anything else in the world.”
Jungle directed the video for “Truth” alongside longtime collaborator and creative partner Charlie Di Placido, the fourth entry in a larger project to create a visual identity for every track on the forthcoming album. In pursuit of this aim, Jungle filmed all the visuals in five days, shooting roughly three videos a day.
Jungle’s previously released singles “Keep Moving,” “Talk About It” and “Romeo” featuring Bas continue to receive praise; Billboard proclaims “‘Keep Moving’ is a funky, feel-good disco-soul sermon with its almost gospel-choir-like chorus and stirring strings,” while FLOOD Magazine declares “‘Keep Moving’ is…a groovy, disco-influenced remedy for gloomy days.” URPOXX furthers, “The song’s funky production emphasizes Bas’ jaunty flow as he spits verses about embracing that which he can’t control.”
As Loving In Stereo is an album that embodies what’s sure to be a summer of social liberation, it’s fitting that Jungle are experiencing something similar. Lifelong friends J&T are embracing the new-found freedom of launching their own label for the first time, a decision that has initiated a creative rebirth. They’ve ditched the external influences, put commercial considerations on the backburner and avoided second-guessing what people expect from them. Instead, they’ve taken their music back to their roots, to a time when they could make whatever music they liked without overthinking it. The album’s themes exude positivity: new beginnings, new love and fighting back against the odds.
“When we write music there’s hope,” says the other half of Jungle Josh Lloyd-Watson. “Maybe today we’ll create something that influences people and changes the way they feel. If you can make something that lifts people, that’s an amazing feeling.”
Loving In Stereo was recorded at J&T’s own studio as well as The Church Studios. The album features songwriting contributions from Inflo—a Mercury Prize and Ivor Novello Award winner for his work with Michael Kiwanuka and Little Simz—as well as vocal contributions from Dreamville rapper Bas and rising star Priya Ragu, which marks the duo’s first feature collaborations.
In support of the forthcoming album, Jungle has confirmed an extensive run of worldwide tour dates. Adding to their already vibrant live shows, the duo will create the feeling of stepping into a Jungle video shoot by amplifying the focus on their choreography and visual aesthetics. The run of North American dates kicks off in Boston on October 3 and includes shows at DC’s Anthem, Chicago’s The Riviera Theatre and Philadelphia’s The Fillmore as well as multiple performances at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre and Brooklyn’s Avant Gardner. See below for the full tour routing.
Jungle was founded by J&T, who met at the age of 10 in West London’s Shepherd’s Bush. They began making music together at the beginning of 2013, choosing to put the aesthetic emphasis on the music’s surrounding artwork/videos rather than on their own identities.
Jungle’s 2014 self-titled debut album was a Mercury Prize nominee and is now Gold-certified, while their 2018 follow-up, For Ever, peaked at #10 on the UK Albums Chart. Their two records have since amassed over 750,000 equivalent album sales and nearly a billion streams worldwide. They’ve performed on five continents, headlining venues both stateside and abroad while performing at major music festivals such as Glastonbury, Coachella, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. Jungle has appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “Ellen.”
