Introducing JAY COOPER, the 22 year old Australian producer and vocalist who today shares new single ‘Shallow Anthem’ featuring the young Baltimore-based artist, Apollo Renegade. Listen to it now on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Soundcloud, triple j Unearthed and more.
‘Shallow Anthem’ follows ‘Say Something’, a stand alone single and the third official release from long-time collaborators and friends, that independently made its way on Spotify’s Best New Music of 2017 playlist.
An ode to the yearning artist, ‘Shallow Anthem’ is written for those who aren’t afraid to dig deep to create music and art that speak to something bigger than themselves. Cooper shares, “It’s for those who stay up, so full of ideas waiting to see light.”
Formerly known as JaysWays, Jay Cooper relocated from his home studio in Sydney to North America to continue to collaborate and develop alongside other artists. He continues, “‘Shallow Anthem’ is how I’ve been feeling during this relocation, holding so much music back, but it’s time to let things go.”
‘Shallow Anthem’ is the first track off his forthcoming EP, Interim, set for independent release in 2018. Cooper says, “It’s about the place in-between where you’ve been and where you know you can be. I guess it’s the bridge/tunnels to your self-realisation and purpose.”
Quietly creating for the better part of this decade, Jay Cooper has been patiently creating solo and alongside the More Than Enough collective featuring artists Jahi Sundance and Annahstasia Enuke, and is currently in the studio with JoJo. Most recently, Cooper worked together with Grammy award-winning artist Robert Glasper, Jahi Sundance and Common on the comic soundtrack CASTER, which also stands as the first time in history that anyone has scored a comic book.
