South African artist Jeremy Loops has played some of the world’s most prestigious venues – including a sell-out headline Brixton Academy show here in the UK – with his high-energy music, amassing over 250 million global streams, and growing. Today he releases his long-awaited third album, ‘Heard You Got Love’, a record of head-bopping anthems perfect for sunny days.
Also released today is Jeremy’s feel good, laid back and hooky single ‘Head Start’, produced by the prolific Red Triangle (Camilla Cabella, Charlie Puth, Yungblud), co-written by Wayne Hector (Nicki Minaj’s ‘Starships’) and featuring Jeremy’s easing voice and effortless guitar.
‘HEAD START’ ALSO OUT TODAY HERE
This follows his previous single ‘Better Together’ which was co-written with none other than Ed Sheeran. After meeting back stage at a show in South Africa, the pair hit it off – with Ed even joking that Jeremy was a better ‘loop’ artist than him – and decided to work together.
The first single from this album was written and recorded with one of Jeremy’s life-long influences, the iconic, world-renowned, South African vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo. The group formed in the 1960s to create traditional world music with energetic, uniquely spirited harmonies, and here their distinctive style fits perfectly with Jeremy’s sound. Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s celebrated career was followed by a young Jeremy who was brought to tears after first seeing them live. To collaborate on this album was a dream come true.
Jeremy has carefully merged his values into each corner of his latest record. He says, “This is the album I’ve always wanted to make and my hope is that some of the things I’ve written about will mean as much to others as they do to me. Every song speaks to something I care deeply about.”
The album ‘Heard You Got Love’ allowed Jeremy to explore more technical aspects of recording than he has previously. The record came to life in Jeremy’s home studio in between daily dips in the ocean. He collaborated with world-renowned artists such as Simone Felice (The Lumineers), Jake Gosling (Shawn Mendes), Tobias Kuhn (Milky Chance) and Carey Willets (Dermot Kennedy). He also brought on a fleet of high-end producers for the album, including Ed Holloway (Lewis Capaldi), Eg White (Adele) and Cam Blackwood (George Ezra).
Jeremy will set sail around the globe once again this year for his extensive 2022 tour, stopping at Glasgow, Dublin and Manchester before embarking upon a string of dates at European cities and closing the run at London’s Eventim Apollo (Hammersmith) on 6th October.
