Emma-Jean Thackray – Our People
London-based jazz artist Emma-Jean Thackray has shared Our People, the final single off her upcoming debut album Yellow. Thackray said “It’s that cosmic-jazz-esque sound, a driving groove with synthy goodness, with lyrics that sum up the universal truth I’ve been writing about: we’re all our people. We’re not the same but we’re from the same, and we are one being. From one person to another, to a tree, to an animal, I believe we’re all one, and we’re all love.” Emma-Jean Thackray says that she wants Yellow “to sound like a psychedelic trip. You put on the first track, it takes you through this intense thing for almost an hour, and then you emerge on the other side transformed.” Fantastic vocals and wonderful gospel feel.
