JacquesGreene today presents “Let Go” (Feat. Rochelle Jordan), the final pre-release single from DawnChorus, his forthcoming album outthisFridayviaLuckyMe. “Let Go” follows “For Love,” and lead single/video “Do It Without You,” as well as early single “Night Service” (Feat. Cadence Weapon). “Let Go” features vocals and lyrics by Jordan, with music composed by Greene and TravisStewart.
Greene approached the making of DawnChorus as if he were a band. While samples played a big part in his early output, his creative process for DawnChorus revolved around recording a stellar cast of musicians, arranging new parts. As a result, it’s his most collaborative project to date, featuring additional production and instrumentation from film composer BrianReitzell (Lost In Translation), cello by London’s OliverCoates, additional production from ClamsCasino and original vocal contributions from Ebhoni, ambient artist JuliannaBarwick, and rapper CadenceWeapon, all sampled, processed and stitched back into the album.
To craft the sound of the record, he thought about the artists he held dear and researched the gear they used as a means of being in dialogue with their emotional tenor. Some of the gear he sourced included the delay that My Bloody Valentine was renowned for, as well as a compressor used by FrenchTouch producers AlanBraxe and FredFalke. Working with mix engineer JoelFord (of Ford & Lopatin), he created a rule book for the album’s sonics that saw each part, from the drums to the pads, be processed in a specific way, through guitar pedals and outboard equipment.
Surrounding the release of DawnChorus, Greene will play select shows in Europe and the UK before returning to North America. All dates can be found below and tickets are on sale now.
