Jane collaborates with Robaroe on blistering new single ‘MANCHILD’

The new single is available to stream and download from Friday

Following on from the release of her sensational breakthrough singles ‘BIRTHCONTROL’ and ‘boys 2 MEN’, which have both gone on to muster thousands of streams online, New York-based singer, songwriter and producer Jane has now returned with her latest alt-pop/RnB hybrid ‘MANCHILD’.

Working in collaboration with Leeds-based producer Robaroe, the pair turn out a wonderfully bright and inventive new offering. With notable comparisons to the likes of Mura Masa and AlunaGeorge, this new groove has a unique and energetic flow to it, not to mention a surprising and adventurous use of instrumentation throughout.

Speaking about working with Robaroe, Jane said, When George (Robaroe) first sent the instrumental track to me, I wrote a love song. The lyrics were alright, basically just about feeling the giddy excitement of falling for someone (I kept the “Falling, falling”). But I sent a demo with my vocals to my two best friends and they immediately said something along the lines of “Yeah, it’s cute…but don’t you think you could make it a little more interesting? Lyrics are kinda lame.” And as always, they were spot on. Love songs totally aren’t me. So I did a 180 and wrote a song that is a fantasy of meeting and taunting Donald Trump. It’s a radical, bouncy summer song that’s meant to make all crusty, misogynistic, downright-evil old white men quake in their ugly loafers.”

Jane is also expected to release her debut EP later this year.
