June Jones unveils stunning new single ‘Jenny (Breathe)’

Her first release since her 2019 album, 'Diana'

June Jones has today (October 14) unveiled her new single ‘Jenny (Breathe)’, marking her first release under a new deal with label Remote Control.

The slow-burning and synth-driven track was self-produced by Jones, and is accompanied by a music video that was directed by long-time collaborator Geoffrey O’Connor.

“I wrote ‘Jenny (Breathe)’ in December 2018 while I was catsitting for my manager, Tom,” Jones explained in a press statement.

“It was really hot in the apartment and I was spending a lot of time in the bath listening to Ursula Le Guin audiobooks. The song is in part an ode to my lifelong love of science fiction, and it’s a song in which I am singing to myself as well as anyone who is hurting and needs a place to rest, recalibrate, and breathe. It’s a song about surviving inner trauma and outer dystopia, though I don’t think it’s easy to separate the two.

“I recorded the vocals and bass guitar with Geoffrey O’Connor and did everything else on a tiny Lenovo ThinkPad,” she continued.

“I wanted the song to combine elements of traditional, contemporary, and futuristic, while retaining a strong sense of human emotion, as most of my favourite sci-fi writing does.”
