Jacob Collier Enlists Shawn Mendes, Stormzy And Kirk Franklin For New Single Witness Me

Wednesday, 22 November 2023 Written by Jon Stickler

Jacob Collier has released a new single, Witness Me.

The collaboration with Shawn Mendes, Stormzy and 19-time Grammy-winner Kirk Franklin serves as the latest preview of Collier's new album, 'Djesse Vol. 4', the final instalment of his self-produced 'Djesse' series.

Bringing together the voices of the four music heavyweights, the gospel-inspired track also includes Collier's trademark harmonies and incorporates over 5,000 fans singing together as a backing choir. He said in a statement:

"The song began its journey back in 2021 when Shawn and I got together to throw some paint in Malibu. We bonded over our love of gospel music, joyous communal gatherings, and creating music for more than ourselves. I worked on that song seed over the coming months and traveled to Arlington, Texas (chez Franklin) to work with Kirk and his unbelievable singers for a day. That session transformed the demo into a fully-fledged song, which I then sent to Stormzy to do his inimitable magic with.

"This song means a great deal to me, and its creation has brought me a lot of hope and warmth over the two years of its gestation. In a time where there are countless divisive forces around the world, my hope is that this song can act as a reminder of the power people hold to come together and really see each other, carry each other, and bear witness to life in all its colors."

'Djesse Vol. 4' will be released on February 29 via Hajanga/Decca/Interscope, and followed by a North American tour in the spring. Tickets are on sale now.
