condivide il nuovo singolo
una cover del brano di Jai Paul

e annuncia la versione deluxe del suo secondo album
disponibile l'8 dicembre su Transgressive / Six New Recordings

Dopo l'uscita del suo libro d'esordio, THE MAGIC BORDER, e il recente Tiny Desk Concert di NPR Music, Arlo Parks condivide il nuovo brano "Jasmine" e annuncia una versione deluxe del suo secondo album  "My Soft Machine" acclamato dalla critica. In uscita l'8 dicembre via Transgressive Records, "My Soft Machine (Deluxe)" conterrà sei nuovi brani, tra cui l'evocativa cover di "Jasmine" di Jai Paul, che Arlo Parks condivide oggi. Prodotta dal compagno di etichetta Dave Okumu, "Jasmine" ha ricevuto l'approvazione di Jai Paul stesso. La canzone è accompagnata da un video diretto da Joel Barney e prodotto da Ali Raymond (Beatnik Creative), girato a New York.


Speaking about what the track means to her, Arlo explains "'Jasmine' has always moved me deeply - to me it's this shadowy, timeless and incredibly profound love song. I really wanted to draw out the yearning of the lyrics and pay homage to an artist who has had a seismic impact on me and on culture. Receiving Jai Paul's blessing to create this cover with Dave Okumu was one of the highlights of my creative journey so far".

Also appearing on the deluxe version of the album is a new version of ‘I’m Sorry’ featuring Congolese-Belgian singer/rapper Lous and The Yakuza, ‘Blades’ with bars from US hip-hop upstart redveil, a cover of Tirzah’s hit ‘Holding On’ and acoustic versions of album favourites ‘Devotion’ and ‘Pegasus’. It will be available digitally only and is available for pre-save here.

My Soft Machine, released earlier this year serves as a testament to Parks' artistic evolution, highlighting her unique storytelling prowess and introspective lyricism. The album, recorded across London and Los Angeles, boasts an impressive array of producers, including Paul Epworth, Ariel Rechtshaid, Romil Hemnani (of Brockhampton), Buddy Ross (known for collaborations with Frank Ocean), Carter Lang (known for work with SZA), and self-production by Arlo herself. Leading up to its release, Arlo graced the covers of The Guardian Film & Music, GQ Hype, DORK, DIY, MusicWeek, Gay Times and Paste Magazine. This follows her highly acclaimed debut album, Collapsed in Sunbeams, which garnered two Grammy nominations, a BRIT Award, the Honda Mercury Prize, and the BBC Introducing Artist Of The Year Award, as well as chart success and recognition for her advocacy work with UNICEF and CALM, the UK mental health charity.

Arlo's debut book, THE MAGIC BORDER: Poetry And Fragments From My Soft Machine published by HarperCollins Publishing, consists of the lyrics from her recent sophomore album, My Soft Machine, as well as new exclusive images by Daniyel Lowden and 20 new poems. Parks' writing has garnered high praise from fellow musician Florence Welch, who described her writing as, "poetry you can taste,'' with Katie Gavin of MUNA adding, "Arlo Parks pulls beauty around her as a war tactic, and she shares the spoils with us. I am grateful and invigorated."
