HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM THE FOOL SET FOR RELEASE ON APRIL 21
Today, internationally acclaimed singer-songwriter JAIN debuts a new song “Take a Chance” with an accompanying lyric video. Listen/share HERE.
“Take a Chance” follows the recent release of “The Fool,” both taken from her much anticipated third album The Fool coming on April 21 via Columbia/Sony Music France.
“The fated encounter,” JAIN explains of the song. “A bug from the small machine in the big one, the audacity to seize its chance away from the marked path.”
“The Fool is the holiest card in the deck,” says JAIN. “You can’t go on any kind of journey unless you’re willing to be foolish. Taking your first step, driving a car, falling in love. There’s always a risk you’ll lose your balance. At any moment. But in the end, the fool’s journey is the only journey.”
Co-produced by long-time collaborator Maxim Nucci/Yodelice, the international pop and folk album chronicles all the stages one goes through when making a fresh start: fear, excitement, innocence, doubts, letting go and epiphany. She relies heavily on Tarot de Marseilles, an art her mother passed on to her which gives her the strength to jump into the unknown through an instinctive perception of the world’s dangers and possibilities.
While the new album draws on artistic influences such as Kate Bush and Stevie Nicks, much of JAIN’s music originally blended a myriad of genres such as Arabic percussion, African rhythms, electro, reggae, soul and hip hop.
In 2018, her sophomore album Souldier (2018) reached #1 in France and went double platinum, while the single “Alright” is certified diamond. In the same year, Jain was named by Rolling Stone as an “Artist You Need To Know.” She has performed on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, “Later… with Jools Holland,” opened the Ryder Cup in 2018, the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2019 and performed over 300 shows in 15 countries across Europe, North America, South America and Asia as well as festivals including Coachella and Lollapalooza.
JAIN is scheduled to headline a European tour this fall, and play a number of festivals over the summer as well as a few arena shows in France.
Born in France and raised primarily in the United Arab Emirates and Congo, JAIN released her debut album Zanaka in 2015. The album sold over 1 million copies worldwide and the singles “Come” and “Makeba” from the LP quickly climbed the charts, the latter of which earned the artist her first Grammy nomination for “Best Music Video” in 2018.
