Singer, songwriter and producer Jordan Rakei, back from an extended hiatus, has released his new single “Mind’s Eye”, his first solo material since 2018’s “Wildfire” and the first new music in what promises to be a busy 2019.
It follows a string of live and studio collaborations with his friends Tom Misch, Alfa Mist and Barney Artist (the Are We Live collective); as well as Loyle Carner on his recent single “Ottolenghi“. The soul-stirring nature of “Mind’s Eye” comes firstly through the production. Rakei employs his fascinating blend of R&B, Jazz and Electronic production that lifts and descends. Each instrument is masterfully pieced together.
But also the performance of the song and also the lyrics speak volumes. Rakei shares that “the subject of the song is experiencing a technological malfunction which is flooding his mind’s eye with projections of chaos causing him to question his reality.”
Having performed at iconic venues and festivals including Glastonbury, Field Day, Pitchfork Avant-Garde, SXSW, Shepherd’s Bush Empire and two sold-out nights at Ronnie Scott’s, Jordan will play a handful of intimate European and US headline shows in May and June.
