Tertia May's enticing blend of jazz and R&B, mixing hypnotic and experimental production with her deeply soulful tones, has always set her apart from the crowd and that looks set to continue with new track "The Book Of Jonah", which also adds in a laid-back hip-hop vibe courtesy of Brooklyn rapper Goya Gumbani. As always, production comes from Subculture and together it seems the two understand each other better than ever. "The Book Of Jonah" will be released in tandem with "Twenty Two", which got its first radio play yesterday, and both tracks will appear on her upcoming Not From Concentrate EP, due June 28.
Speaking with Complex via email, May told us: "I was hanging out in the studio, with Goya, Subculture and my guitarist Cam May, when we decided about three hours in, to start jamming and making some music. The theme of this song is about trying to run away from your problems, however big or small, and not letting it consume you. I've wanted to get Goya on a piece of music for a while, and as soon as he started rapping over it, I knew we had something special."
