Song of the Day: Timeless – Oscar Jerome (ft. Lianne La Havas)

Lifted from his long-awaited debut album, ‘Breathe Deep’, released late last month, South London-based artist OSCAR JEROME‘s single ‘Timeless’ is a duet with Lianne La Havas which also includes instrumentation by friends in Ezra Collective, Sons of Kemet and Oscar’s other band, Kokoroko.

The pared-back single strip things down to the bare fundamentals, with Oscar soft-plucked guitar and vocals going back and forth with the sublime harmonies of Lianne La Havas. As the song builds, layers of lush jazz-inflected instrumentation are introduced piece by piece.

Oscar says of the track: “I wrote this song for my Dad. It’s about viewing someone you love as a constant through your whole life, not just who they are now. I was privileged enough to have the legendary Lianne La Havas jump on this tune. She made it everything I hoped for and more. She has been really good to me over the last couple of years and I appreciate her greatly.”

The single arrives off the back of 6Music-playlisted ‘Sun for Someone’ (ft Joe Armon-Jones), ‘Your Saint’ (ft Brother Portrait), ‘Give Back What U Stole From Me’ and, most recently, ‘Joy Is You’. Have a listen to ‘Timeless below…

Song of the Day: Saran Jane – Trillary Banks x Stardom
