In the upcoming month, we’ll witness the much-anticipated release of Jamila Woods’ latest album, “Water Made Us.” Following the intriguing previews of “Tiny Garden” and “Boomerang,” she’s now treating us to another glimpse into the LP with her newest track, “Good News.” Buckle up and give this fresh tune a spin below.
“Good News” is a collaborative effort, with Woods teaming up with the talented Biako and Jean Placide. Biako, not only serving as a producer but also lending his vocals to the mix, helps create a unique sonic landscape. Meanwhile, Jean Placide takes charge of the drumming duties and adds his voice to the melodic tapestry.
The lyrics of “Good News” played a pivotal role in shaping the title of Woods’ forthcoming album. Explaining the connection, the Chicago-based musician and poet shares, “The album’s title is drawn from one of the lyrics: ‘The good news is we were happy once/The good news is water always runs back where it came from/The good news is water made us.’ For me, this song is a profound lesson in surrender, one that I’ve learned repeatedly from observing the nature of water.”
Intriguingly, “Water Made Us” is the successor to her previous work, “Legacy! Legacy!” and is scheduled to grace our ears on October 13 via Jagjaguwar. Mark your calendars, because this release promises to be a transformative journey through sound and emotion.
So, there you have it, folks! Jamila Woods’ “Good News” not only gives us a taste of what’s to come but also leaves us pondering the profound connections between music, lyrics, and the natural world. Stay tuned for more updates as we eagerly await the release of “Water Made Us.” It’s safe to say that this musical voyage is bound to be nothing short of extraordinary. _xD83C__xDFB6__xD83C__xDF0A_
