about

Bass-heavy dub and contemporary club culture are
the foundations for Joe Armon-Jones’ phenomenal
second album. “Turn to Clear View” builds on the
celebrated keys player’s singular vision, exhibiting a
sound with flourishes of R&B, hip-hop and p-funk, and
featuring regular bandmates Oscar Jerome, Moses
Boyd and Nubya Garcia. He builds on his close-knit
core personnel with guest spots from artists he’s long
admired, including Georgia Anne Muldrow (Brainfeeder,
Stones Throw), Obongjayar (XL) and Jehst.

From character-fuelled raps to Afrobeat-influenced
jams, Armon-Jones channels the diversity of the
ascendant scene that surrounds him. Co-produced
with longtime collaborator Maxwell Owin, the
record has a carefully-plotted feel that reflects their
meticulous approach. The duo carefully perfected
every touch, with Armon-Jones ever-present
throughout the mixing and mastering processes.

Between his highly acclaimed solo career and his work
with the influential Ezra Collective, Armon-Jones is
building on a rush of acclaim – winning Session of the
Year at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards and being
nominated for UK Act of the Year at the Jazz FM Awards.
His electric, open-ended live shows have brought him
to Glastonbury, SXSW, Boiler Room and a sold-out
headline show at London’s Village Underground.

Time to let go

They call you a weed
They don’t want you ‘round here
Growing in their grass
Easily abounded

Even when you die
You are multiplying
Yellow Dandelion
Yellow Dandelion

Carry my wish upon the wind with you
That you grow ever stronger
Propelled with all the things you need
To rise from fields or cracks on the street

(Grow Strong)

From the root to the flower
Healing truth lives in power
Though they don’t want you ‘round
You grow from the ground

Joe Armon-Jones:

Wrote a page of words for you
But none of them (made any sense)
Were any good
Anyway

So here’s a song instead
That i thought of while i was with you
Anyway

We can be together now
Or we can be together in heaven
I don’t care
When I wrote those million words for you to view
You said nothing, and that really hurt

So I wrote that song about you
And all the words to follow
Anyway

When I realised it was you
And not all the others to follow
Oh yes they dooo

When I wrote this song about you
I’m hoping this will do
So you take solace, so you take solaace

I’m almost run out of words for you to view
What can I doooo

Wrote a page of words for you
But none of them (made any sense)
Were any good
Anyway

So here’s a song instead
That i thought of while i was with you
Anyway

We can be together now
Or we can be together in heaven
I don’t care
When I wrote those million words for you to view
You said nothing, and that really hurt

So I wrote that song about you
And all the words to follow
Anyway

When I realised it was you
And not all the others to follow
Oh yes they dooo

When I wrote this song about you
I’m hoping this will do
So you take solace, so you take solaace

I’m almost run out of words for you to view
What can I doooo

Jehst:

They way I feel is so strong for you
I wrote a song for you
Even though it’s been so long
I still long for you
I couldn’t stop it if I wanted to
Yeah there’s been one or two
But I wrote this one for you
My darling
Looking fly with the Hawaiian garland
Plus your energy was calming
Had me playing Prince Charming
Knight in shining
Next thing
Flipping like I’m Jack out The Shining!
Let me just black out the blind and
Divine light of the vagina
So blinding
My religion
Fly position
When our planets aligning
To bring life into fruition
The seed
So what’s it gonna be?
Cos the apple never falls
Far from the tree
I wrote this for you
For believing in me
Did the maths like
One plus one
And made three
But what that really mean?
It’s the magic number!
My lighting flash
The clap of your thigh’s thunder
Caterpillar to a butterfly
Aye Carumba!
She just needs a Little Brother now
9th Wonder
For 9 months
You were carrying the cargo
I’ll kill for my daughter
Like Arnie in Commando
Go hard for the hardo
Dead all the bravado
I gotta get it for the avocado
To grow strong
I wrote a song
To express it with
Cos I’ll forever be indebted
For your precious gift
So the love is unconditional
Whether romantic or platonic
Even if it’s nonreciprocal
I wrote this song for you
And little you
To let you know
It’s only right that we’re together
You’ll never be left alone
Whatever the direction
I’ll be set to go
Hours on the telephone
So we started getting close
My ghetto rose
From concrete she grows
Shit is real
But we’re still
Catching many jokes
And it shows
Leaving all my weaknesses exposed
We on the same frequency
That frequently explodes
The Leo and Aquarius
Precarious
If it wasn’t serious
The shit would be hilarious
Had so many flavours
Yeah various
But when it comes
To my favourite one
Ayo! There she is!
My palette so refined
And our bond is so strong
Now our DNA combined
It’s the big bad wolf
On the chase
What’s good?
I got a taste for
Little redbone from the ‘hood
And I would
Wave a magic wand if I could
And put the beef to an end
See me as a friend
If nothing else
Nothing more
Nothing less
I wrote this for the Queen
Raising my princess
It’s the King!
Track Name: Self:Love Ft. Obongjayar
Obongjayar:

You have everything own nothing
You know everyone have nobody
Money turn you high viz
Invisible without it
That million pound exterior
Don’t make you superior
Inside you’ve got some cleaning up
To do

Why why why why
Why why do you try too hard
Lie lie lie lie
Lie lie
Just to feel among

Be yourself
Be yourself o
Be yourself
Be yourself o
Be yourself
Be yourself o
Be yourself

You keep running from your skin
Everyday you’re someone different
You don’t know where you begin
Shapeshifting to fit in
All the flash all the tricks
Don’t hide your insecurities
The only person you deceive
Is youuuu

(Be yourself) Repeat

Joe Armon-Jones:

And I know you wanna say
Why did it have to be like this
I never know but I tell you
It’s gonna change
It’s gonna change

And I know you wanna say
Why did it have to be like this
I never know but I tell you
It’s gonna change
It’s gonna change

And I know you wanna say
Why did it have to be like this
I never know but I tell you
It’s gonna change
It’s gonna change

And we always wanna say
Why did it have to be this way
I never know but I tell you
It’s gonna change
It’s gonna change

And I know you wanna say
Why did it have to be like this
I never know but I tell you
It’s gonna change
It’s gonna change

‘Cause we always wanna say
Why did it have to be this way
I never know but I tell you
It’s gonna change
It’s gonna change

And I know you wanna say
Why did it have to be like this
I never know but I tell you
It’s gonna change
It’s gonna change

And I know you wanna say
Why did it have to be like this
I never know but I tell you
It’s gonna change
It’s gonna change
