It’s been four years since London singer Jamie Woon’s last release, Mirrorwriting, but today he’s back with a new single. Well, sort of — Pharrell and Disclosure both played “Sharpness” during radio shows recently, unbeknownst to Woon’s team. The track’s electronic R&B leanings land it within James Blake’s idea of true dubstep rather than the frat-noise misrepresentation of the genre. It’s tenderly soulful, like an exposed wound: “Everyday is the day that you save me/light into darkness/cut on the sharpness of love.” Woon meanders through an uncharted land of damaged lovers. Listen to Woon’s matured R&B sound.
“Sharpness” is available for purchase 8/11 via PMR. Anticipate more from Woon soon.
