In anticipation of her first release to come in thenearly two years since her critically heralded debut Before Love Came To Kill Us landed, Jessie announced the new album in a big way with the emblazoned break-up ballad, “Mutual Friend,” proving yet again she is an unstoppable force. Reyez premiered the track live on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, which re-airs on Tuesday, August 30th, clad in a sheer & velvet catsuit, backed by a piano and 12 piece string section, giving an emotional and evocative performance that left anyone in doubt speechless. On the record, Jessie clears the air to an ex-lover and releases any lingering emotion she carries while declaring her independence – shown as scenes of beautiful rage, dying flowers symbolic of the relationship, and fluid dancing in the music video directed by Peter Huang – watch both at links below.

Al Rose’s ‘Again the Beginner’
Chicago singer-songwriter Al Rose’s eighth album, Again the Beginner, is an urgent set of 13 good and true songs which features perhaps the loveliest melodies, catchiest hooks, and nerviest set of lyrics he’s yet composed. It’s a heartening and bracing experience; one man’s attempt to come to terms with modern times and that broken feeling everybody’s got in the pit of their stomach. The stakes couldn’t be higher: this is your life; our time is running short, and every personal crisis seems tied to an accumulating sense of public dread. After all, a lot has happened since Rose dropped his last album, 2016’s Spin Spin Dizzy: years of authoritarian encroachment, COVID-19, and unstinting attacks on democracy at home and abroad.
