Keeping momentum building from his acclaimed 2018 album Critical As Water, Jeremy Loops shares the exceptional single ‘My People’, a collaborative track with Austrian singer-songwriter James Hersey, out now via Loops Music and Glassnote Records. Hersey will also support Loops on his European Levitation Tour, concluding at the iconic Roundhouse in London.
Co-written by Loops and Hersey, ‘My People’ is a gloriously upbeat indie-pop track which compliments both artist’s unique vocals as they flow back and forth, then congregate on the infectious chorus over the guitar-led production. The track is already a breakout on streaming platforms, getting listed on more than 30 New Music Spotify Friday Playlists around the world, as well as equivalent Best of the Week playlisting support on Apple Music.
Speaking on ‘My People’, Jeremy Loops says “James and I had a jam session at my house in Cape Town the day after we first met. It was effortless and so much fun, we kept saying we need to connect on a track together. It took two years to come to fruition, but I couldn't be prouder of 'My People', and I'm equally amped to have James supporting us on the road this year.”
On working with Loops, James Hersey explains “Jeremy and I both lead lives that require us to spend a lot of time away from home. "My People" is a homage not to the places we come from, but to the people there that keep us coming back”
Jeremy Loops previously won MTV Africa's Award for ‘Best Alternative Album’ and has supported the likes of Twenty One Pilots, Rebelution and Milky Chance on tour, with praise from the likes of Consequence of Sound, Red Bull, CLASH and Baeble. Last year’s album Critical As Water, spawning the mega singles ‘Waves’ and ‘Gold’, cemented Loops’ place as a leading South African artist, and furthered his presence in Europe, where he now routinely headlines 2000 plus capacity rooms.
James Hersey’s widely known for his breakout single ‘Miss You’, a mega-hit that’s amassed more than 100 million streams on Spotify, as well as the filous remix of ‘Coming Over’, a track that topped Billboard’ Dance Chart in 2016.
