We introduced different times South London singer-songwriter and musician Oscar Jerome, who also plays in Brownswood afrobeat collective Kokoroko. Now he announced the release of his first full-length titled Breathe Deep which will be out on August 14th via Caroline International. It features bandmates in Afrobeat group Kokoroko plus Lianne La Havas and friends in Sons of Kemet, Ezra Collective and Maisha.
We already shared “Sun For Someone”, “Joy Is You”, “Give Back What U Stole From Me“ and “Your Saint“; “Timeless” is a new excerpt which features Lianne La Havas. He explains: “I wrote this song for my Dad. It’s about viewing someone you love as a constant through your whole life, not just who they are now. I was privileged enough to have the legendary Lianne La Havas jump on this tune. She made it everything I hoped for and more. She has been really good to me over the last couple of years and I appreciate her greatly.”
