A death and two goodbyes: The new and sixth Joy Denalane album will be released on 6 October 2023. “WILLPOWER” tells of letting go, of grief, but also of a newly won freedom – and of self-empowerment. A leap into the unknown with wildly oscillating Happysad soul of irrepressible intensity.
11 new tracks, including a feature with Wu-Tang Clan legend Ghostface Killah and produced by Roberto Di Gioia – as well as with Max Herre. On some selected tracks on “WILLPOWER”, none other than the US jazz musician Tim Lefebvre, who most recently led the band with which David Bowie recorded his last album “Blackstar”, plays the bass.WILLPOWER” is now about things to come, the road ahead. The shimmering and the gravitational, seemingly conflicting poles from which the centre of power emerges that this woman has built in eleven songs gliding weightlessly towards infinity. With willpower, resilience, but also and above all acceptance.
“More than 20 years ago, I released my debut album “Mamani” with Four Music. Today, the team at Four Music is different and yet it feels like coming home to me. The spirit at Four Music is still unique. It feels good to know that my new album “WILLPOWER” is in good hands. I’m really looking forward to a great collaboration and to finally being able to go on tour with my band again in November!” (Joy Denalane)
