Verse 1 Something borrowed Something blue Taking the old dance Making it all brand new Take my sorrow and Teach me Throw me a lifeline Come on and lead me Home, where my heart is The warmth of thousand suns The sweet familiar Soul of my kindred beings Be free The many a people passing this way You’d say / Your welcome to stay Pre-Chorus 1 Beauty guarantee’d Wrapped in ribbons please Take a picture perfect painting of reality Chorus It’s so good So good Your welcome anytime, follow your feet oh Verse 2 Crazy lovers They do roam Picking a lifestyle On the wind they blow Travelling brothers Show me (You say) We’re never too old To fly away from Here, where your heart beats Build ya field of dreams where- Wherever you want Find love True Love Pick a patch you like and Paint a scene Pre-Chorus 2 Beauty guaranteed Made of paper please Send a picture postcard painting of reality

What you want from me Can’t read your intention your vibe I’m not sure you know I don’t swing your way Trying to remember when you stepped into my life Don’t need no palm reader to tell me something misguided Don’t need you colluding with the minds of my friends Greeting me like we got history, a bond that can’t be broken Wish it was as easy as knowing your a friend HOOK:::: Who said it was easy to trust I know your not sincere i got suspended when I gave my whole heart I lost my whole heart in a hole I’m stuck You got what you want from me You’ve climbed up the ladder I’m caught up not giving a damn And I know your still searching for a connection that stands the test What’s it worth when you have no one to cheers your glass with In a pit with the vultures, fighting for truth and satisfaction Your in to deep

seven days in the lighthouse slay the dragon with your eyebrows sunday came and you lost your song holding hands with the darkside running all the red lights round and round and you didn’t know why another day another holy illusion it’s like you’re breathing underwater and if you try to tell the sky from the ocean true love is unlearning it’s a slow rise you’re slowly returning this is your story you’re still unlearning you left your teeth in the classroom gave your shadow to the black moon raise your hands if you don’t belong somewhere on the horizon there’s a fire on the rise and youthful dreams they will never be wrong another stone another hole in the glasshouse it’s all nothing better shake it off you if you try to step inside with all your demons in the limelight you better meet them with a rebel heart it’s a slow rise you’re slowly returning this is your story you’re still unlearning you’re slowly you’re slowly burning it’s your story you’re still unlearning slow rise slow rise slow rise slow rise

Paint knives and a palette Short strokes cross a canvas 45’s a pot of tea Full moon looming over me Tints tones inner vision Monochrome intuition Sketched out layered memories Flowing through my hand with ease It’s beautiful Dimensional No blur no flaw Timeless mystical It’s beautiful Symmetrical I stand in awe Timeless mystical Beautiful Light shifts the impression Mixed hues in succession Stand back from the reverie I was much too close to see Lift turn now my shoulder pains Wear tear captured in the frame Saturated in specks and sound Bone-weary spellbound It’s beautiful Dimensional No blur no flaw Timeless mystical Beautiful It’s Captivating Alluring Provocative Meticulous Glorious Soothing So true to life I could climb into it

about

Jazzanova are proud to announce their next full length, The Pool, is due for release via their own Sonar Kollektiv on June 29th 2018. It is their most mature and musical album yet and welcomes a host of talented collaborators including Jamie Cullum, Ben Westbeech, Pete Josef, Rachel Sermanni, Olivier St Louis, Paul Randolph and many more. 

They might not have put out an album in the last decade, but by no means have Jazzanova been out of the picture. Instead members Alex Barck, Claas Brieler, Axel Reinemer, Jürgen von Knoblauch and Stefan Leisering have been focussing on a diverse range of projects, as well as becoming parents. From running their JRS studio to A&Ring a wealth of new talent for their Jazzanova label via for producing others and, of course, continuing to play their unique live shows around the world, they are as immersed in music as ever. 

Although none of the band are trained musicians, the new album is their most mature, musical and accomplished yet. It features a wealth of guests who bring their own distinctive flavours, but still retains a real sense of Jazzanova’s own musical identity—something that combines neo-soul, jazz, indie and pop songwriting with their unique knack for sampling and serious skills on everything from synth to piano, vibes to trombone, flugelhorn to guitar. The Pool evolved from various loose jam sessions and playful hours in the studio. It means there is no restrictive overall theme, but the album very much flows from one track to the next, mixing up synthesised sounds, samples and real instrumentation to paint a colourful overall picture that is utterly captivating. 

This most sophisticated Jazzanova album starts with the broody moods and jumbled drums of ‘Now (L.O.V.E. and You & I - Part 2)’ feat. Oddisee, before the sombre chords and forlorn vocals of Rachel Sermanni on ‘Rain Makes The River’ carry you away. The heaviness subsides with Pete Josef’s upbeat soulful stylings on ‘Follow Your Feet’ then the sunny hip hop of ‘No 9’ feat. KPTN, who delivers great verses over crisp live drums. ‘Sincere’ feat Noah Slee is a bristling mix of synth textures, bumping beats and swinging percussion and ‘Slow Rise’ then sinks down into insular moods thanks to the pained and intimate vocals of David Lemaitre.

The heavy hearted piano of ‘Let’s Live Well’ is truly tender before Jamie Cullum’s rousing vocals transport you to a more positive place, and ‘Everything I Wanted’ feat Charlotte OC is a dynamic blizzard of drums, trombones and percussion that has crystal clear vocals cutting through it all to bring real emotion. Olivier St Louis delivers gorgeous modern soul on the propulsive ‘Heatwave’ and frequent collaborator Paul Randolph brings vulnerable vocals to the shimmering chord vamps of ‘It’s Beautiful.’ The breezy seaside bliss of ‘I’m Still Here’ feat Edward Vanzet and wonderfully catchy, carefree pop of ‘Summer Keeps On Passing Me By’ feat Ben Westbeech close the album out and complete a beautiful journey that effortless takes you through a range of moods and grooves. Each vibrant track makes a big impact and stays with you long after it’s finished playing. 

The Pool is an album that proves Jazzanova are still very much making and breaking their own set of rules, and it marks the start of a major new chapter in their long and storied career.
