It's a touching move from the Glasgow riser...

Glasgow pop force Joesef has shared his new single 'I Wonder Why'.

A truly independently minded artist, Joesef works from his flat in Glasgow, a space where he can unwind, create, and record.

It's where new single 'I Wonder Why' was constructed, a pensive, introspective piece of pop melody.

Calmly assured in its execution, the new release is pushed into a different space by the guest verse from Loyle Carner.

Of the collaboration Joesef comments: “I never work with anyone at all but my mates and I are Loyle’s biggest fans so it was a real dream come true to be able to hear him on a song I’d made, and to hear his lyrics and how he interpreted it in his own way. He’s really is up there with the best for me, and he’s a complete gent to add so I’m buzzing with how it’s came together."

Continuing, he talks a little about the points of inspiration running through his work. Joesef adds: “Sometimes I don’t know how I feel till I write it down and this seemed to be one of those times. I think I was avoiding addressing that I was a bit fucked up at the start of the year because of a situation, so this tune sort of put a line under it.”

“It's about losing someone and going through the motions trying to shake the thought of them not being around anymore. It’s still pretty heavy to handle for me sometimes, but I do love it.”

Tune in now.
