Jeremy Loops premieres new song “Down South” — listen

on February 12, 2015, 11:10am

Singer-songwriter Jeremy Loops is already something of a household name in his native South Africa. He has several #1 singles under his belt, headlined various local music festivals, and made headlines by campaigning against deforestation with his advocacy group Greenpop. Now, he’s set to bring his brand of spirited and evocative folk rock stateside with the release of his latest album, Trading Change, due out May 5th via Yebo Music.

Today, Loops unveils the album’s latest single “Down South”, a collaboration with Cape Town rapper Motheo Moleko. Together, the two serve up a veritable smorgasbord of sounds, with arena rock guitars, flourishes of electronic textures, hip-hop swagger, and folk earnestness blended together into a swelling anthem that champions positivity and self-actualization. Listen in below.

Loops will tour the US in support of the album beginning later this month. Consult the full schedule below.
