A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, 22-year-old Conor Albert, keeps granting us delightful tunes to groove to.
This week he dropped his new single "piano joint" - the official version of his TikTok / Instagram viral looping clip. The young and promising South London-based artist has already collaborated with artists like Griff, Priya Ragu, Disclosure, Tom Misch, Zak Abel, Reuben James. Now he is working on his upcoming project Collage 2, part of which is this release. He commented:
"Piano joint" is my gift to the fans that have been following me on Instagram and TikTok over the last year. Since I put out the video of me looping it together, I've had hundreds, maybe thousands of messages and comments asking me to put it up on streaming platforms, so here it is! I've released a lot of music as my social media following has grown but never an actual beat from my loop videos, so when I had such a positive reaction from this one I knew I had to put it out there. Collage 2 is full of a lot of songs with some amazing artists, but with these songs I never really have a chance to show the more muso, jazzy side of me that's always been there. That's why I'm so happy to have 'piano joint' as the only instrumental track on Collage 2 so I can show off just a little bit haha!
Collage 2 is due in Spring 2022 via Young Poet (UK & ROW) and Ninja Tune (North America), so stay in the loop!
