German-born composer and singer Josin has been keeping us rapt in the build up to her album In The Blank Space (coming out January 25th), with the spellbinding tracks 'Burning (For A New Start)' and 'Once Apart'. This week she has shared the opening title track from the album, 'In The Blank Space', along with a subtly moving video.

“‘In The Blank Space’ is the most recent song I’ve written,” explains Josin. “I’m trying to describe a state where you actually want to get lost in a space, because that nothingness is full of everything. “Completion, if I get caught in your web." It can shift and bend and creates all shades, if you accept to be only one little atom. It´s about being content and conscious of all the things, that could be overlooked or forgotten. But everything you long for is around you.”

Josin leads us heedlessly into the catatonic bliss of the Blank Space with her somnambulent piano and strings, which flutter in like a gentle chill wind. Putting a muted thud beneath only serves to reinforce the numbness of the feeling, and here Josin grasps us with her gorgeous vocal, which manages to be alert-yet-wavering. The path that leads us 'In The Blank Space' is dotted with softly glowing instrumentation on either side, with a propulsive current of bass underneath, leaving us dangling fearlessly in a liminal world. Again, we're entirely captivated - watch and listen to 'In The Blank Space' below.
