Composer and singer-songwriter Jamie Irrepressible aka – THE IRREPRESSIBLES – has shared news of a new EP ‘Self Love & Acceptance’, and shared a brand-new track “Self Love”.
The EP is set for release on 2 October 2023, ahead of a special UK tour this Autumn which will see stops at some of the most beautiful churches and venues across the UK.
Intended as a series of meditations surrounding the artist’s own personal journey towards ‘Self Love & Acceptance’, The Irrepressibles new EP sees Jamie Irrepressible niftily craft an impressive selection of brand new songs and instrumental pieces that are just as uplifting as they are introspective.
An intimate, piano-oriented collection, the release is The Irrepressibles’ first new music in almost three years and features new single “Self Love” (out now).
From long-developing moments of enveloping orchestrations, to more intimate reflections on the inner processes of enlightenment and expansion, the EP is a powerfully personal contemplation on the long journey toward self-love. The EP will also feature the intensely inspiriting “Transformation of Acceptance”.
The creative guise of Northern composer Jamie Irrepressible, The Irrepressibles’ new release ‘Self Love & Acceptance’ follows his three critically acclaimed studio albums ‘Superheroes’ (2020), ‘Nude’ (2012) and ‘Mirror Mirror’ (2010), featuring his now international indie-hits “Most Beautiful Boy”, “Two Men In Love” and “In This Shirt”, which have over three billion streams combined.
Alongside the release Jamie and his seven-piece band of strings, percussion and folk musicians will head out on a UK tour of the country’s most beautiful churches and concert halls. Taking to the stage across October for the series of orchestral-pop shows, the shows will see Jamie’s acclaimed chamber-pop songs brought to life amongst settings that match the ambience and acoustics of his innovative pieces.
