Good Day


Artist: Jonathan Jeremiah
Label: [PIAS]
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 31 August 2018

Jonathan Jeremiah releases his new album, Good Day, via [PIAS]. Drawing on the likes of Serge Gainsbourg, Scott Walker, Richie Havens, John Martyn, Carole King and James Taylor, Good Day is nonetheless far from a counterfeit time capsule. His first acclaimed album, A Solitary Man, was released in 2011. It earned gold status in Holland, where it charted at No.3, and also reached No. 11 in Germany and Belgium. Two further albums, 2012’s Gold Dust and 2015’s Oh Desire, earned him further accolades, not least a phone call from legendary James Bond composer John Barry. Good Day was recorded at Ray Davies’ Konk Studios, cramming a 19-piece string and horn section into the room...

Good Day will bring a wave of nostalgia to those of us of a certain age. There's a distinct Bond theme-esque feel to the majority of the songs on this 11 track (38 min, 47 sec) album. It's no surprise that the late John Barry was a fan of Jonathan Jeremiah's work.

This is a well polished and beautifully produced album - the choir and orchestra really do add greatly to what are already impressive songs. Jeremiah's vocals, as always, are rich and wash over the listener in a comforting way.

The overall feel is of a retro, yet timeless album which will give you hours of listening pleasure.
