British singer JP Cooper releases a new collection of songs in the form of ‘Too Close’ EP, which is released globally today via Island Records
JP explains, “It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve released a collection of songs, so I’m very happy to be putting this out there. I see ‘Too Close’ as a precursor to my second album. I’d like to think of these songs as part of the same collection.”
The body of work is led by latest single “Little Bit of Love,” which is the uplifting anthem that JP released to comfort fans throughout the global COVID-19 pandemic
Other tracks included on the record include the Mr Hudson produced “Bits & Pieces” and the soaring “In These Arms” which was produced by Al Shux. The title track is a song based on that pivotal moment many people have found themselves in before stepping into a romantic relationship.
“I’d love to see what a brain scan would look like in that moment,” JP ponders. “I’m pretty sure it would be a huge ball of light.”
Beyond the exciting release of “Too Close,” more big things are set for JP Cooper in 2020. JP announced an extensive UK and European tour in the fall, including a show at London’s Brixton Academy. The full list of tour dates can be found here.
