november 24, 2023

The announcement comes after the release of Collier’s new single “Witness Me”, featuring Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes, British rap titan Stormzy and 19-time Grammy-winning gospel legend Kirk Franklin, for a heart-warming ode to the power of empathy. Heralded ‘The World’s Hottest Record’ by BBC Radio 1 this week.

Witness Me” is the fourth glimpse into Collier’s next installment of his genre-defying quadruple album project DJESSE, which, alongside previously released singles “Little Blue (feat. Brandi Carlile)”, “Wherever I Go (feat. Lawrence & Michael McDonald)”, “WELLLL” and Grammy-nominated “Never Gonna Be Alone (feat. Lizzy McAlpine & John Mayer)”, gives a fascinating insight into the upcoming album’s extraordinary depth and range.

In the last twelve months alone, videos of Collier’s audience choir have garnered hundreds of millions of views; he was the first-ever male to be featured as a Vogue Darling; he appeared on the July cover of Rolling Stone UK, as well as co-writing and performing on seven tracks of Stormzy’s This Is What I Mean. He has also collaborated extensively with Coldplay, performing with them on Saturday Night Live in February, as a featured guest at their Wembley Stadium shows last summer, and on their album Music of the Spheres. He has also contributed to major hits including SZA’s “Good Days”, songs by Lizzy McAlpine and Kehlani, launched a sold-out signature line of music-making Crocs, and recently headlined his biggest career show to date at the 17000-capacity Hollywood Bowl.

About Jacob Collier
Recognized by audiences, critics, and fellow musicians alike as one of the most gifted young artists of modern times, 29-year-old Jacob Collier already has a seemingly endless list of achievements including five Grammy wins along with 11 Grammy nominations including Album of the Year in 2021. As a result, his roster of collaborators is astoundingly varied and vibrant. Jacob’s voice has been featured on recent songs from the likes of Coldplay, SZA, Stormzy, and Kehlani. In his own projects, Collier has worked with an unpredictable cast of artistic powerhouses, from Malian singer Oumou Sangaré to John Mayer, T-Pain, Ty Dolla $ign, Daniel Caesar, and Tori Kelly (to name a few).

Exploding onto the global stage with the viral success of his multi-frame, multi-instrumental YouTube covers, Collier caught the attention of Quincy Jones and under his mentorship released his debut album, In My Room, in 2016, which was recorded, produced, and played entirely by Collier. Djesse (his most recent 4-volume album project) has been a natural progression from the one-man process of In My Room, expanding to include collaborators from all over the world. The resulting volumes of Djesse have delivered on Collier’s ambitious promise, featuring an incredible array of artistic peers, and musical themes that encompass everything from orchestral composition to folk songwriting, R&B, rap and pop. Ultimately, although Collier has already achieved more than most artists could hope for in a lifetime, he is still restlessly creative. Alongside the upcoming release of Djesse Vol. 4, he has plans for future projects centered on solo piano, orchestras, film scoring, teaching, musical theatre, and more.
