Joy Crookes today returns with momentous new single ‘Power’, a luxurious, defiantly sophisticated track with an important, far-reaching lyrical edge. “Power is a song about the misuse of power,” explains the prodigious South London talent. “I felt like it was important to speak on this issue especially considering our current social climate. This song is dedicated to those who feel powerless.”
Following ‘Bad Feeling’, one of the year’s most distinctive new tracks, ‘Power’ is the meaningful and formidable second track to be taken from the singer-songwriter’s upcoming debut EP, Influence, due for release on July 21st.
Co-written by Joy and Audra Mae and produced by Alex Hope (Troye Sivan, Tove Lo, Jack Antonoff), the track sees Joy continue her assured ascent to the upper echelons of 2017’s new stars, and comes after a packed show at London’s Bushstock festival and an outstanding performance at Live Nation’s hyped The Source night earlier this month.
Joy’s bold visual aesthetic, powerful lyrics and sophisticated modern pop sound are proof of this striking new talent’s deep and longstanding obsession with music. It’s an obsession rooted in incredibly eclectic music; some of her favourite artists including Massive Attack, Black Uhuru, Billie Holiday and Young Marble Giants.
