Jeremy Loops has been in lockdown longer than most. At the start of this year, fresh from a tour that took in Brixton Academy and his biggest ever venues throughout Europe, he hid himself away in his Cape Town studio to complete his eagerly-awaited third album. Just two days after the final song was written, South Africa shut down.

As his music took off around the world, trees sold at his merch stands as keyrings have offset his carbon emissions from touring. Although he has become known for crafting high-energy, feel-good tunes, social responsibility has always been part of Jeremy’s package, no more so than on his new songs.
