It finally happened. Jai Paul officially released his mythical debut album. The demo version was first leaked and quickly retracted in 2013, after which the elusive artist spun into something of a mental breakdown and disappeared from public view. Since then, his music continued to be passed on surreptitiously, like some kind of smooth, bass-heavy R&B contraband. And now, seemingly suddenly and without prior warning, there is an official version of the entire album accompanied by two brand-new, fantastic tracks. Check out the Jai Paul website for a download of the album, merch and vinyls and immerse yourself in the two new tracks below.
Written, recorded, produced and mixed by Jai Paul
Vocals, drums, synthesizers, electric guitars, triangle, programming and SFX by Jai Paul
Additional vocals by Fabiana Palladino
SIDENOTE: if you’re tired of playing the album on loop, try the ‘infinite’ version of Jai Pauls’s seminal “Jasmine”: on each listen, the AI program “Bronze” plays a a slightly altered version of the music.
