Joy Crookes Premieres New Song “Trouble” on BBC Radio 1
- British singer-songwriter Joy Crookes premiered a new song “Trouble” on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is taken from her upcoming debut album “Skin”, which is out October 15, 2021.
The album was originally scheduled for a mid-2020 release, but was pushed back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The album comprises of 13-track, produced by Barney Lister, Blue May, Joy Crookes and Tev'n.
Joy Crookes told Clara Amfo about the song, “I came up with something a weird place that didn't, so we're deep in a lockdown. And I've gotten into a very strange hobby, which is jump biking in the most popular areas of London and seeing no one. Well, it's an electric bike, you can dive pretty fast and then flick your sleep box.”
She continued, ”I was on this junk bike and then I had to stop, and I was with someone and they were like, what's going on and I was like oh my god, I've got this like kind of Bollywood-ish melody that is put on my phone and I was going, dah, dah, dah, dah, (she sings), like almost a joke. And then we were really lucky because we got a little bit out of lockdown and then I can go into the studio again so I brought this idea to the studio and I was having some trouble with a family member, I fought right I'm gonna have to write about this because all we do is argue, but we're on the same side we both love each other but we hate taking everything out on each other. So then that's how the song appeared, and I was watching killings either at the time which is why there's a Saundra lyric.”
