Joe Fox, whose debut Blue Flowers EP Acoustic Alley Sessions introduced the young Londoner as one of the most singular of British talents, drops his first single proper ‘What’s The Word’, impact date Sept 8. The track was produced by Leon Michels, co-founder of the Truth & Soul production team/record label, and collaborator with The Black Keys‘ Dan Auerbach in their band The Arcs. Mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, David Bowie, Amy Winehouse) ‘What’s The Word’ finds Joe extending his musical reach to create a fuller, brass inflected, beat driven sound, exuding a loose limbed swagger, which hints at the direction his debut album is headed.
Acoustic Alley Sessions was a collection of raw, soulful, songs, that illustrated why A$AP Rocky chose Joe to co-write 5 songs on his #1 album At.Long.Last.A$AP, following a chance meeting on the streets of Soho. Joe’s strength as a songwriter lies in a total disregard for current trends and presents a special voice, sounding like no other in today’s musical landscape. A student of every great songwriter from the Beatles to Bob Marley, ‘What’s The Word’, and the new songs he has been recording for his debut album, coupled with his intimate and powerful live performances, present Joe Fox as a truly magnetic performer, and a writer and artist of unique talent. Check out the video for his single ‘What’s The Word’ below:
