REJJIE SNOW has announced his highly anticipated debut album, DEAR ANNIE, released on 16 February via 300 Entertainment / Brace Face. Written and recorded across Los Angeles, London and Paris, it’s a genre-spanning opus of 20 tracks that features production from Kaytranada, Cam O’bi, Rahki and Lewis Ofman, and guest appearances from Portland powerhouse Aminé, London storytellers Ebenezer and Jesse James Solomon, and Oslo ice princess Anna of the North.

A first, Kaytranada-produced single from the record, EGYPTIAN LUVR featuring Aminé and Dana Williams, is currently available to stream and download. It is also available as an instant grat to those pre-ordering the LP, alongside three further brand-new songs from the record that together make up the EP, DEAR ANNIE: PART 1. A second volume will follow later this month.

REJJIE SNOW is a scene unto himself. Born in Dublin, he lives wherever his suitcase settles, wherever the songs send him, making albums in the middle of making other albums, and tangling words into beautifully complex knots that blur biography with fantasy over a shifting mass of rainy loops, technicolour keys and trippy percussion.

And then there’s his voice, deep and otherworldly, capable of riding a beat with metronomic precision, cooing to raw piano, or yawping Prince-like over a soul-rock-jazz groove. His influences are as disparate as George Michael and Charles Bukowski. He designs clothes and paints. He sees the moon as his first love. He almost had a career as a footballer, but instead toured with Madonna, recorded with leftfield dance genius Kaytranada and, after signing to 300 Entertainment in 2016, became label mate to fellow outsiders like Young Thug and Fetty Wap.

In his own idiosyncratic manner, REJJIE SNOW croons and rhymes equally while brandishing his heart proudly on his sleeve. DEAR ANNIE is an invitation to embark on a journey to the surreal depths of his soul. It’s as much a rite of passage for him as it is a rollercoaster ride of emotion, from the jet-setting escapism of EGYPTIAN LUVR and MON AMOUR to the visceral otherworldliness of SPACESHIPS and RAINBOWS, to the haunting heartache of ROOM 27 and THE ENDS, the album is a sweeping cinematic overture and a bold statement of intent from the wise-beyond-his-years 23-year old.
