NEW SINGLE FOLLOWS COLLIER’S COLDPLAY COLLABORATIONS, PREVIEWS NEXT ALBUM, DJESSE - VOLUME 3
DJESSE - VOLUME 1 & 2 BOTH EARN 2020 GRAMMY NOMINATIONS
29 NOVEMBER 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - Following a week that brought Jacob Collier two new Grammy nominations to add to his previous pair of wins, plus three new Coldplay songs to include on his ever-expanding resume of wide-ranging collaborations, the 25-year-old producer, songwriter, instrumentalist, and poly-octave vocalist releases “Time Alone With You”, featuring Daniel Caesar. The new single, out today on Hajanga/Decca/Geffen/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company, is the first preview of Collier’s forthcoming album, Djesse - Volume 3, due in spring 2020.

Since Jacob Collier partnered with Genius to teach YouTube how to play H.E.R. and Daniel Caesar’s “Best Part”, he and Caesar have connected as creative partners. Caesar joined Collier onstage in Toronto (during a concert where Collier rhythmized, improvised, and harmonized the sold-out crowd); Collier sang on Caesar’s CASE STUDY 01 cut, “RESTORE THE FEELING”; and now, Caesar repays the favor on one of Collier’s most provocative and unpredictable grooves to date.
Though the two made “Time Alone With You” in Collier’s famous London bedroom, the ongoing, four-album series of Djesse has taken Collier around the world. Each edition explores new scopes of sound, defining itself in terms of style and space. The sweeping symphonies of Volume 1 and close acoustics of Volume 2 each earned Collier 2020 Grammy nominations. For his immense, crosscontinental reimagining of “All Night Long”, he’s up for Best Arrangement (Instruments and Vocals), and for the over five thousand vocal takes that make up his rendition of “Moon River”, he’s up for Best Arrangement (Instrumental or A Cappella). Collier previously won both categories in 2016, which gives him a Grammy nomination for every album he’s released in his career.
“Moon River” features contributions from over 140 special guests, including Daniel Caesar, Tori Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, and Chris Martin, who Collier also sings with for three songs on Coldplay’s brand new album (“Church,” “Cry Cry Cry,” “Everyday Life”).
On the heels of Djesse - Volume 1 and 2, Collier sold out shows across the US, EU, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and South America. Last week, he announced the 35-stop, spring 2020 leg of his DJESSE WORLD TOUR, spanning 29 of his biggest North American performances yet.
