His sophomore album is due July 10.
Joji announced Thursday (April 16) that he'll deliver his sophomore album, Nectar, on July 10 -- and he also gave fans a dual taste of its unpredictable sweetness with his new single "Gimme Love."
The song can be sliced directly in the middle, with Joji's frenetic pop production laced with hazy "oohs" driving the first half right up until the one-minute, 40-second mark. Then, "Gimme Love" immediately shifts tones with a chorus of ethereal "oohs" floating above a climactic orchestral arrangement to conclude the latter half, which he produced alongside Bekon & The Donuts (Kendrick Lamar, SZA).
"Back in the day, I feel like you had a favorite part of a song, and now that's not really a thing anymore," Joji told Billboard's Chelsea Briggs for the upcoming First Stream Podcast (the full episode will publish on Friday). "So I thought it would just be nice to kind of have a song that's long and in two parts."
