The new single follows "In My Bones" (feat. Kimbra & Tank and The Bangas), which prompted Consequence of Sound to deem Jacob "a mad, mad genius," and Entertainment Weekly to compare him to "a Stop Making Sense-era David Byrne working with a Rhythm Nation-era Janet Jackson." "Time Alone With You" (feat. Daniel Caesar), the first preview of Djesse Vol. 3, led Stereogum to call him "the kind of unstoppable force who can tour the world behind a four-part, 50-song album."
Jacob has been busier than ever while home in London. Coldplay's Chris Martin joined him on Instagram Live last week for the penultimate installment of Global Citizen's Together At Home series. They duetted on "Moon River" and two Coldplay classics.
Jacob also livestreamed a performance for TED's 13 million Facebook fans, and has welcomed a host of musicians into his series of split-screen Instagram Live duos, including Jessie Reyez, Daniel Caesar, Tori Kelly, JoJo and more TBA. With charm for days, he also just aced Elle's longest game of Song Association and Seventeen's Lyric Challenge.
Djesse Vol. 3 is due this summer via Hajanga/Decca/Interscope, and will deliver Jacob's most collaborative and unexpected set of songs yet. In January, Jacob earned 2 GRAMMYs for his work on Djesse Vol. 1 and 2. He is now a four-time GRAMMY recipient, earning at least one Award for every album he's released. The epic 4-volume project is an expedition through different sonic spaces. He's so far welcomed over 20 collaborators into his distinct musical world, from Daniel Caesar and Lianne La Havas to dodie and Metropole Orkest, with more to be announced.
