With a blockbuster 12 months behind him, JP Cooper releases his highly anticipated debut album ‘Raised Under Grey Skies’ today on Island Records. Later this week, JP will step out on his biggest UK headline tour to date playing 10 shows including London’s Roundhouse October 19th.
With two UK Top Ten singles to his name, the Jonas Blue smash ‘Perfect Strangers’ which he co-wrote and the inescapable radio hit ‘September Song’, JP has notched up an incredible 10 million single units worldwide, and an extraordinary 1 billion streams. His debut album ‘Raised Under Grey Skies’ includes the aforementioned ‘September Song’, the radio favourite and gospel-tinged, ‘Passport Home’ and latest track ‘Momma’s Prayers’, a collaboration with Stormzy.
‘I’m incredibly excited to be able to say that my debut album is finally coming out’, says JP. ‘It’s been a life time in the making and a long journey from playing to a handful of people at Manchester open mic nights, to a sold out European tour ending with an incredible night at Shepherd’s Bush Empire!’
No stranger to the live arena, JP has already sold out London shows at Village Underground, Koko, O2 Forum Kentish Town and more recently an electric sold out show at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. JP also joined The Script on their mini UK tour earlier this summer and plays the following UK dates this October:
