Caroline Van der Leeuw’s transformation from the voice of the chart-topping Caro Emerald to her artistic identity as The Jordan has been a journey of self-discovery. From the assertion of ‘You Don’t Even Know Me’ to her celebration of new beginnings with ‘Best Damn Day’, The Jordan’s first releases have been defined by her bravery to present music which isn’t afraid to draw a line under the past and step confidently into a very different future.

That attitude of empowerment, vulnerability and pure honesty comes across more powerfully than ever as The Jordan now shares the new track ‘I’m Not Sorry’. The track is the latest song to preview her debut album, ‘Nowhere Near The Sky’, which follows on February 10th.

‘I’m Not Sorry’ declares The Jordan’s new-found independence and burns all of the bridges behind her as her ominous, semi-whispered vocal declares, “I’m not sorry for bruising your ego, I’m not sorry for breaking your will, I’m not sorry for not asking for forgiveness.” Sonically it’s a step aside from the trip-hop stylings, its unsettling, gothic-tinged intensity simmering with the kind of unforgiving ire that dares you to answer back.

The Jordan says, “‘I’m Not Sorry’ is written for everyone out there who’s tired of apologising. Who’s tired of feeling guilty. And who’s tired of taking the blame. We are not selfish, we just know what we want and we’re not sorry.”

‘Nowhere Near The Sky’ is available to pre-order HERE, with all of The Jordan’s recent tracks provided as instant downloads. Her official store offers a range of bundles and exclusive formats, including a very limited run of signed and numbered test pressings.

After playing an intimate debut show at Amsterdam’s Bitterzoet, The Jordan will follow the release of ‘Nowhere Near The Sky’ by playing a European headline tour. Tickets for the shows, listed below, are available HERE. She will also perform at Eurosonic in January.
