Since the release of her debut album in 2010, Denton, Texas native Sarah Jaffe has carved out a formidable niche in the indie singer-songwriter firmament, including tours with Lou Barlow and Norah Jones. She’s also flirted with the mainstream, with performances on Jimmy Kimmel and a guest vocal spot on Eminem’s Marshall Mathers re-boot in 2013.
As a follow up to her 2014 album Don’t Disconnect, SJ is bringing out an EP of new songs–one of which we’re thrilled to be debuting here–as well as fascinating remixes by some of her most creative pals, including Mystery Skulls (whose recent collaborations include Nile Rodgers and Brandy), S1 (producer for Kanye West, Beyonce, Jay Z), and Blue, The Misfit (whose production credits include Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q).
The new tracks, sexy and stylish “Vision” and “Crossed My Mind,” both see her delving into more electronic and cinematic territory.
In anticipation of the EPs spring release, we premier the song “Vision (feat. Sam Lao & Zhora)”. She will also be playing live dates this week in Louisville and Dallas, before a full tour later this year.
