Newly signed Atlantic Records/Cooked Paintings recording artist Annabel Jones just debuted her new single “IOU” on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show.
Once upon a time, pop stars tore up pictures of the pope and cursed out the Queen on television. Most days, that era seems long dead. We live in a landscape where being on-brand trumps truth. The end result is that mundanity wins. Annabel Jones is looking for the antidote.
“You can’t keep putting out meaningless noise and expect culture to grow or evolve,” Jones says. “You can’t refuse to put yourself out there and say what you think or feel because you won’t get that Steve Madden shoe collaboration or a perfume at Macy’s.”
