Today, critically acclaimed UK singer JP COOPER announces the release of his unforgettable single “Five More Days” [featuring Avelino] through Republic Records. The track is available at all digital retailers HERE. It’s the first song from his forthcoming album due out later this year.
“Five More Days” is reminiscent of Cooper’s trademark soulful sound; however the song sees JP working his vocal into new areas; breaking boundaries and varying the melodic tempo to the point of Funk and Garage inflections. “From the moment i pick up my feet in the morning, to the minute i’m falling asleep the night’s calling” sings Cooper, as he takes us on a journey of growth, development, and the associated natural struggle. Adding to the song, hot off the back of releasing the collaborative Young Fire Old Flame mixtape with Wretch 32, Tottenham-hailing Avelino is one of the hottest rappers of the moment, flooring critics with his fluid freestyles and honest lyricism.
Cooper has already become a veritable sensation in the UK with last year’s When The Darkness Comes EP. Global tastemaker Zane Lowe named him among BBC Radio One’s “Future Sound of 2015,” while he received praise from 1XTRA, Shortlist, Clash Magazine, Wonderland, Hypetrak, and more. To date, he’s racked up over 4 million streams and 5 million video views. Recently, he joined forces with SG Lewis for the viral smash “Shivers.” He first touched down in the United States for SXSW 2015, earning raves in the process. This year, you can catch him live at Bestival, Festival No. 6, Barn on The Farm, and more to be announced.
In addition, Cooper will be headed to Austin for a packed week of shows at SXSW, make sure to check out one of his performances listed below!
JP Cooper is an artist who understands how to use music as not only a form of expression; but a release of true emotion, for both himself and the listener. “Five More Days” illustrates this perfectly. Look out for more news on JP COOPER very soon.
