Jordan Mackampa - British/Congolese Singer - Shares New Video For

Jordan Mackampa will wrap the final leg of his North American tour with Amber Run this weekend in Los Angeles and has just shared the video to his latest single, "Parachutes." The track was produced by Dani Castelar (Paolo Nutini) and is yet another stunning exploration of British/Congolese singer's soul and pop-fueled songwriting, with expansive highs and tender lows. It's the latest single from his upcoming debut album Foreigner, available March 13th, 2020 via AWAL, and the new video is directed by Mackampa's long time collaborator, Tom Ewbank.

"I wanted this video to capture the mental, and sometimes physical battles we go through in relationships, whether they are platonic or romantic with people in our lives," notes Jordan. "It can sometimes feel as though you're dealing with two different people, but no one else sees the other person you encounter who brings you pain and hurt, rather than joy. You become inwards within yourself until you can't take it anymore and have to walk away from them, even if it's hard."

"Parachutes" follows the release of the questioning single "What Am I" - a modern take on Marvin Gaye's classic "What's Going On" that highlights the state of the world right now and how helpless we can feel while trying our best to make changes. Jordan also previously released single "Under" in May and three EPs - Live From The Grand Cru (late-2017), Tales From The Broken (early-2017) and Physics (2016). Mackampa has received critical acclaim from NME, The 405, Line Of Best Fit, Clash, Indie Shuffle, Wonderland and more, regular airplay from Los Angeles' KCRW, and has amassed over 50 million streams via Spotify.
