The rising indie-alt/pop/R&B artist, Joesef, teamed up with U.K. hip-hop artist/rapper, Loyal Carner, on the new single, “I Wonder Why,” out now on AWAL.
“I Wonder Why” is a solid, sultry indie pop /indie-alternative track, in which Joesef takes the reins, and wrote, produced, and recorded the track in his Glasgow apartment before sending it over to Carner.
Joesef explains, of the track, “Sometimes I don’t know how I feel till I write it down and this seemed to be one of those times. I think I was avoiding addressing that I was a bit fucked up at the start of the year because of a situation, so this tune sort of put a line under it. It’s about losing someone and going through the motions trying to shake the thought of them not being around anymore. It’s still pretty heavy to handle for me sometimes, but I do love it.”
Speaking about the collaboration Joesef continues “I never work with anyone at all but, my mates and I are Loyal’s biggest fans so it was a real dream come true to be able to hear him on a song I’d made and to hear his lyrics and how he interpreted it in his own way. He’s really is up there with the best for me, and he’s a complete gent to add so I’m buzzing with how it’s coming together.”
“I Wonder Why” follows on the heels of “The Sun Is Up Forever” off his forthcoming EP.
