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!

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.
