Anjimile Preps Orchestral EP 'Reunion' with Jay Som, SASAMI, Lomelda
The three-track record features reimaginings of their 2020 album 'Giver Taker'
Published Apr 13, 2021Anjimile has announced plans to release a new EP titled Reunion on May 7 via Father/Daughter Records. The effort will feature orchestral reworks of songs from their 2020 album Giver Taker.
Featuring contributions by Jay Som, SASAMI, Lomelda and vocalist Justine Bowe, the three-track release comes as a collaboration with composer Daniel Hart, who previously worked with Polyphonic Spree and St. Vincent.
Anjimile said in a release:
The most exciting part of this project for me was giving the participating artists free rein to fuck around with my songs and make them into something purely collaborative, something special, and something new. When Daniel sent me his arrangements, they knocked me on my ass. They're so beautiful and so interesting, and every guest vocalist on this record creates such a beautiful new world and a distinctive sonic palette. It's been really fun and exciting to see my tunes re-interpreted, re-imagined and reconstructed by such powerful musicians.
Today, the artist shares their collaboration with Jay Som, a new version of "In Your Eyes."
"I am very honoured to be a part of Anjimile's orchestral EP," Jay Som said of the project. "Their album Giver Taker is so beautiful and expansive and every time I listen I feel like I've entered a different world. This track is one of my favs on their record, I love when artists rework their own songs with an orchestral arrangement."
