30 MAY 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - JP Cooper follows the rapid success of debut album Raised Under Grey Skies with “Sing It With Me” ft. Astrid S – his first release of 2019.
Today, JP unleashes the official video of the single, which features Astrid S and tells a tell of retro tale of a near-missed love. A deft songwriter and a singer with soulful brilliance, JP Cooper has a rich era-spanning appreciation of music, and an innate need to turn life experiences into narrative, which are evident in the visual for “Sing It With Me”.

On the video JP explains;
"This video was a real joy to make, I love 90’s American indie films like Slacker, Rushmore and Napoleon Dynamite so the fact that it nods to that era, being a bit quirky and comical without it being silly, is great. We filmed it in Estonia with a brief for the location and the characters to all have a slightly Wez Anderson feel which I think the production company nailed. From reading the first treatment from Callum (director) to the final edit I’ve loved the whole process, I'm usually quite nervous about making music videos but this is the first one of mine that I've watched back and smiled all the way through. I hope you enjoy watching it."
Never shy of working with other artists, “Sing it With Me”, is the most joyous of collaborations. With voices that meld together into one, the harmonies complement each other in all the right ways. Slowly adding layers, the track begins with the soulful vocals of Cooper and eventually builds up to an explosive chorus that commands the attention of any room. The perfect soundtrack for the dance floor or a day on the beach, 'Sing It With Me' can translate to any occasion. With a driving beat and passionate vocals, the track has an infectious energy that leaves listeners captivated by the duo.
With two UK Top Ten singles to his name, the Jonas Blue smash “Perfect Strangers” which he co-wrote and the inescapable radio hit “September Song” (which has had over 350 million streams worldwide), JP has notched up an incredible 10 million single units worldwide, and an extraordinary 1 billion streams. His album also contained the infectious, “She’s on My Mind”, the gospel tinged, soaring “Passport Home” and “Momma’s Prayers” a collaboration with Stormzy.
No stranger to the live arena, JP has already sold out shows at London’s most famous venues including The Village Underground, Koko, 02 Forum Kentish Town, 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and the aforementioned Roundhouse.
Following the fantastic “Ordinary People” collaboration with Bugzy Malone in 2018, and the stunning serenade of the “Cheerleader” demo at the end of last year, JP has his sights firmly set on reclaiming his masterful crown, with more new music pencilled to be released before the year is through.
