South London’s Oscar Jerome has announced his new album ‘Live in Amsterdam’, sharing the latest single ‘Pour It All Out’ ahead of the release. The track, a soulful, stripped-back cover of Anguillan reggae legend Bankie Banx, arrives ahead of the October 4 release via Caroline International, with a lengthy EU tour to support the record over October and November. Oscar closes the whole run with his biggest headline show to date at London’s Heaven on November 19. You can watch a sublime acoustic version of ‘Pour It Out’ below, filmed floating down the canals of Amsterdam.

The news comes after wide-spread praise for single ‘Gravitate’ (B-listed by 6 Music with additional support from Radio 1, 1Xtra and Beats 1) a UK tour with jazz polymath Kamasi Washington and a starring role in Stella McCartney’s ‘All Together Now’ campaign.

A restless creative mind, Oscar has served up a consistent stream of singles, each seeing him reach new heights and levels of acclaim. Renowned for his exuberant live show, when taking to the stage Oscar’s lysergic jazzy soul takes on a whole new life, his Trinity Laban conservatoire training coming to the fore. As well as ‘Pour It All Out’, the Live In Amsterdam LP – recorded straight from the desk at a sold-out show at Amsterdam’s Bitterzoet in February this year – also features the aforementioned ‘Gravitate’ and the preceding ‘Misty Head/Sunny Street’, as-well as such earlier cuts as ‘2 Sides,’ ‘Do You Really’ and ‘Give Back What You Stole From Me’.
