Joy Crookes has debuted a new track, ‘When You Were Mine’.
The third to be taken from debut album ‘Skin’, she explains: “”When You Were Mine” is a song I wrote about an ex-partner that ended up being with a man after we broke up. It’s a song about accepting their love, but wishing the same for myself. I wrote it with the backdrop of Brixton because that is where their love unfolded and where I spent a lot of my childhood. We recorded a brass section (it was my first time recording brass and excited was an understatement); we wanted it to sound messy so Japanese whiskey was involved and listening to lots of Ebo Taylor.”
The full-length is set to arrive on 15th October via Insanity Records. You can check out ‘When You Were Mine’ below.
