Description

    In July 2014, Jungle released their self-titled debut album. Featuring the singles 'Platoon,' 'Busy Earnin',' 'Time,' 'The Heat' and 'Julia,' neo-soul classics all, it was the aspirational sound of young London, a soundtrack of escapism, an unmistakable Jungle sound and a unique, vivid, visual Jungle world.

    The whole thing was dreamed up by Josh "J" Lloyd-Watson and Tom "T" McFarland, a production and multi-instrumentalist duo who never expected to leave their bedroom studios, far less become the core of a talent-filled seven-strong collective that morphed into a killer live outfit. Cue online word-of-mouth and IRL buzz, rave reviews, a Mercury Music Prize nomination, songs of the summer (two summers, even), viral videos, Noel Gallagher declaring the album "fucking amazing", half a million sales, burgeoning DJ careers, a global tour that lasted two solid years. It all just happened.
     
    Now, Jungle announce news of the follow-up to that defining debut record entitled For Ever. If Jungle's first album was their imaginary soundtrack to the places they had never been, For Ever is inspired by real life experiences of the places they'd dreamed of for so long. Swapping Shepherds Bush for the Hollywood Hills, J and T set up camp in Los Angeles to write and record the album.

    Over time however, their romanticization of The Californian Dream clashed with the reality of actually living it, the feeling of being adrift on the West Coast compounded by the collapse of long-term relationships. Returning home to London, they teamed up with highly regarded young producer Inflo where they sought to create a "post-apocalyptic radio station playing break up songs", whittling down loads of ideas this concept spawned into the core 13 tracks you have before you.

    That station and those songs and that journey are the sound of Jungle's second album For Ever. They had to go away to come home. And what J and T lost in love, they gained in music. For Ever is for real, deeper and higher, more intimate and more expansive, feelgood and, just occasionally, feelbad. It is, then, a proper second album.
