Announces New Single ‘Loose Ends’ Feat. BRIT Award Winner Jorja Smith
Out Now On AMF Records [Listen Here]
24-year-old Loyle Carner unveils new single ‘Loose Ends’ featuring Jorja Smith out now on AMF Records. ‘Loose Ends’ was premiered last night on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show and was crowned her ‘Hottest Record In The World.’ [Listen here]
‘Loose Ends’ is a brooding, sparsely produced track about all the people who Loyle has looked to for support but been let down by over the years, and also him wishing the people he loves around him now had been there when he was younger. Through all of this though he’s never bitter; and it is this human perspective that turns his anger and love into the perfect blend of strength and vulnerability. Accompanying Loyle on ‘Loose Ends’ is recent BRIT award winner Jorja Smith, who makes a rare and exquisite appearance on the rapper’s track with a vocal line so delicate and dreamy it has the sense of floating away every time you approach it.
‘Loose Ends’ follows Loyle’s incredible comeback single ‘Ottolenghi’ and track ‘You Don’t Know’, which featured Rebel Kleff and Kiko Bun. ‘Ottolenghi’ was featured on the BBC Radio 1 B-list, BBC 6 Music A-list and has already been streamed over 7 million times.
Loyle first appeared on the scene back in 2014, with his debut EP ‘A Little Late’, he followed that up with his BRIT (Best Male, Best Newcomer) and Mercury Prize nominated, top 20 debut ‘Yesterday’s Gone’. The bedrock of honest and raw sentimentality that you hear on ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ has left an inextinguishable mark on music in general and UK Hip Hop in particular, standing out as an ageless, bulletproof debut.
Since the release of ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ Loyle has toured the world, started a cooking school for kids with ADHD, created an award winning, bespoke rap for the Champions League final, campaigned for men’s mental health and fronted a worldwide YSL campaign. By anyone’s standards, Loyle has already achieved a lot. Join the ride to see where else this prodigiously gifted voice of a generation can take us.
