Tottenham singer Leon Jacques has dropped his entrancing new track, "Always".
Growing up in London, Leon Jacques collected inspiration from a huge variety of sources. Encouraged by his parents, he travelled around the city performing street dance, before pivoting into studying Politics, international relations and philosophy at university – before pivoting once more to taking a critical role in House Gospel Choir.
It was there where Jacques really found his voice, allowing him to play huge festivals like Glastonbury and Latitude, play alongside Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue and eventually branch out into his own individual collaborations with the likes of Kojey Radical and Naughty Boy.
He’s built a flourishing career out of all that collaboration, and in his new track “Always”, he’s ready to show it off. “Always” lulls the listener into Jacques’ relaxed soundscape to tackle the genuinely difficult struggle of what it means to fit alongside someone else, gentle acoustics laid across subtle but precise synths, showing how vulnerability can sometimes only be reached by slowing down.
On the track, Jacques stated, “Always is about the difference between the ideal relationship and what it takes to be in an ideal relationship”.
