NEW YORK, NY (February 21, 2020) – Today, JP Cooper releases “Bits and Pieces” following recent tracks ‘The Reason Why’, ‘Sing It With Me’ and ‘In These Arms.’ Get “Bits and Pieces” BELOW.
Written with his good friend and regular collaborator Mr. Hudson at Spotify UK Studios in London, JP Cooper says of the song:
I wanted to write a song that celebrated the journey that I’ve been on, and also the person that helped put me back together again. Although I’ve had so many amazing moments over the last few years, there have been many times where I’ve been screaming on the inside... covered in the concrete silence of a brave face. “Bits and Pieces” is about not only celebrating being fixed, it’s about somehow celebrating that we become more beautiful by going through these things in life. The fingerprints of the people who helped repair us will forever be a part of us, like a ceramic that has been lovingly put back together.
JP Cooper’s latest single “In These Arms” has now surpassed 3M streams globally and the video can be watched HERE. ‘In These Arms’ follows JP’s previous single ‘The Reason Why’, a breezy dancehall slow-jam featuring UK rap queen Stefflon Don and Banx & Ranx, and ‘Sing It With Me,’ featuring Astrid S. The personal reflections in Cooper’s debut album We Were Raised Under Grey Skies (complete with a piano-led Stormzy collaboration ‘Momma’s Prayers’) introduced him as a deeply affecting, soulful songwriter, and now these new singles find Cooper expanding his sound, imbuing his distinctive vocals and infectious hooks with modern energy.
The star has two UK Top Ten singles to his name: the Jonas Blue smash ‘Perfect Strangers’, which he co-wrote, and the inescapable radio hit ‘September Song’ (which has had over 600 million streams worldwide). JP has since notched up an incredible 10 million single units worldwide, a whopping 9.4 million monthly Spotify listeners and an extraordinary 2.4 billion streams.
Big things are set for JP Cooper in 2020, with the recent announcement of an extensive UK and European tour, including a show at London’s Brixton Academy. The full list of tour dates are:
Wednesday April 15th – Glasgow, SWG3
