Jacob Collier has unveiled "In My Bones," featuring Kimbra and Tarriona "Tank" Ball of Tank and The Bangas. Watch the wild video for "In My Bones" - full of choreographed skeletons, a dancing, rapping robot and a syncopated simulation of the Operation game - here: https://jacobcollier.lnk.to/InMyBonesVideo
The kaleidoscopic and high-powered funk jam is the latest offering from Jacob's Djesse Vol. 3, the forthcoming installment in his epic 4-volume 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. Vol. 3 is due later this year, via Hajanga/Decca/Interscope.
Says Jacob: "More than ever before, this is a time for celebration of our humanity, for understanding and empathy, for our communal creative energy to elevate people's spirits and remind us of what life is about. The world is a family, and that even during times as difficult as these it's possible to bring joy to each other, to be loving irrespective of proximity, and to embrace the time we have to ourselves and with our loved ones to reflect, recharge and reimagine the world as we would like it to feel."
