Jeshi Unveils "This Thing Of Ours" Video Alongside Deluxe Version Of 'Universal Credit'

November 30, 2022

East London wordsmith Jeshi shares slow-burning visuals to "This Thing Of Ours", taken from the deluxe edition of his debut album Universal Credit.

Here he connects with director Rawtape to bring his vision to life which situates us around a number of telephone boxes in his hometown. As Jeshi passes through the grey-coated town we observe different events taking place in the phonebox from passionate hook-ups to boozy meltdowns and toilet breaks.

Producers Fredwave, Jonah, Tev'n and Kelvin Krash craft the sonics for Jeshi's experiential bars, giving us another glimpse into the mind and life of the East Londoner.

Speaking on this particular track, Jeshi says, "Been so excited to share "This Thing Of Ours" for the longest time… it was initially going to be on Universal Credit but needed to get the Gabriels sample across the line first.

"Was such a great feeling when they gave it the green light, it feels really exciting for me to now be able to work that and the new versions of tracks I already loved into this deluxe version of the album. The video captured how the song feels to me perfectly… was well worth running around and shooting a ridiculous amount of phone boxes in Preston and Longridge."

Also on the deluxe version of Universal Credit are four reworkings of album tracks dubbed 'Bad Day At The Office' versions, plus the alternate version of "Protein" with Westside Boogie and Obongjayar.
