Joe James Warms Up For A Busy Year Ahead With 'Bruce' EP

Joe James Warms Up For A Busy Year Ahead With 'Bruce' EP

January 12, 2022

It's been almost a year since we last heard from London rapper Joe James on the Joetry project. Brimming with new lessons and perspectives, he's back to kickstart the year with another nine-track release titled Bruce.

Clocking in at 26 minutes, Joe plants small gems of knowledge in a stream-of-consciousness flow that leaves plenty of room for his thoughts to breathe. Over the mellow production, he looks back at his childhood days and reflects on lost friendships. Bruce arrives with only a small handful of guest spots, handled by BXKS, Gav and kb, who help shape the intimate listening experience.

Taking to Instagram to speak on the release, Joe James writes: "A light nine tracks to warm up for the year... Some of you may already know a couple of them if you've really been locked in. Another project on the way in a couple of weeks. I'm just getting started."
