Acclaimed Australian recording artist, Jack River has enlisted multi-ARIA award-winning Ghanaian-Australian artist, Genesis Owusu on her new single, Endless Summer. The song serves as the title-track from the singers long-awaited sophomore album, set to arrive this June.


Co-written with Matt Mason (DMA’S) and co-produced with Matt Corby (Budjerah, Sia, Tash Sultana, Jarryd James), the groove-laden release calls back to 60's inspired sonics with sun-dreched production fuelling the songs psych-folk qualities. River and Owusu's vocals perfectly compliment eachother, each bringing a contrasting tone and timbre that together bring dreamy mesmerising melodies to life. The release arrives alongside a surreal visual, directed by Jordan Kirk.



“Mason had had the verse melody in his back pocket for years. As soon as he played it, I fell in love, and the scene of an endless summer was born in our minds. I brought the track to life with Matt Corby - we had so, so much fun layering vocals and finding sounds that kept the song minimal, but potent. Bringing Genesis on to join the track was a pipe dream that turned into reality. He brings his effortless brand of cool, calm and collected to the song.” the singer shares of the track.


She adds of the album, “I wrote this album before I fell pregnant, but the reality of the ‘endless summer’ we are entering globally has become even more tactile for me after the birth of my child,” she says. “There is a part of the future beside me now, and she will experience the consequences of all the decisions we are making today. The experience of being pregnant and giving birth has made everything beautifully and awfully real. I think that sentiment plays out in this record.”



Endless Summer is out June 16! Watch the visual below.
