Jordan Rakei shares title track from his forthcoming EP via Ninja Tune

Hot on the heels of his recent collaboration with Bonobo, Jordan Rakei kicks off 2022 with the release of new single ‘Bruises’, the lead single from a 4-track digital EP of the same name releasing Friday 4th March.

Speaking on his new music, Jordan states: “I wanted to explore my musical roots of reggae music on ‘Bruises’, but put a slightly alternative spin on it. I wrote the string parts and took them to Amika Quartet. We spent a whole day coming up with different ideas for different sections of the song, and I’m really happy with how it all turned out. I had a lot of fun making this track as it takes me back to my earlier days of making music.”

Jordan is the lead support on Bonobo’s forthcoming North American tour through February and March before returning to Europe for his biggest headline shows to date in Germany, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Belgium, France and the UK finishing up at O2 Academy Brixton in London on 26th April.
