FRESH: ‘Just Come Home With Me Tonight’ – Joesef

Scottish singer Joesef releases his debut album


Today, East End Coast soul singer Joesef releases his highly anticipated debut album “Permanent Damage”. From it comes the gorgeous, yet heart-wrenching single, “Just Come Home With Me Tonight”.

Representing the multilayers of the Scottish singer’s character and heart over the past two years, “Permanent Damage” witnesses an artist who has grown from bedroom pop to master and co-producer of new soul.

Writing songs that are naked and honest, but with a sense of humour that underlines the harsh punchline, “Permanent Damage” is a transportive, moving and soulful body of work, which digs deeper into heartbreak with each listen, and the permanent damage left by lost love.

“Just Come Home With Me Tonight” has become his first BBC Radio 1 playlisted track and Clara Amfo’s Tune Of The Week. Recording the vocals in his bedroom in Glasgow before he started work on his album with Barney Lister (Obongjayar, Joy Crookes, Celeste), the co-producers realised that the demo vocals contained the magic and true feeling of a heartbroken boy. Joesef decided to keep the younger ‘Joe’ alive on the final track, which he now looks back on and wishes he “could tell that version of myself I’ll be alright soon”.

Known for his cinematic visuals, drawing inspiration from films such as ‘Trainspotting’, ‘Kids’ and ‘Beats’, Joesef has worked with longtime collaborator Luis Hindman on the official video for “Just Come Home With Me Tonight”, which was evocative of the scenes and the queer community captured in Jeremy Artherton Lin’s Gay Bar and Wolfgang Tillman photography.
