Last week saw the awaited return of alt-R&B artist JONES with the release of her London EP. She has followed up with the accompanying video to opening track ‘Tender’. Stripping everything back to the very bare elements, the visuals are as warm and comforting as JONES’ distinctive delivery.

This is the first of a three-part EP series being released this year, each dedicated to a favourite city of JONES. She treated a select number of fans to an intimate launch party last week at Kansas Smittys in London, where she debuted the exposed, raw sound of the new EP as well as performing much-adored tracks from her 2016 debut LP New Skin.

This first EP is a tribute to her hometown and city to which she has an intense emotional link, and New York EP and Paris EP will follow later this year. Each EP will include a full produced single and a selection of acoustic tracks.
