London artist Joe Hertz is coming back to us this week with a lush new single called ‘Black Oak’ which features South Korean singer-songwriter Livigesh on vocal duties and it is oozing with warm fuzzy feels.
As horrible as the COVID situation has been I do often wonder about some of the positive things that have come from it, and as Joe reveals below this song came to be during that uncertain time…
“I had made this demo while I was away in Ibiza during the summer of 2020, this was a time when all the clubs where shut and there was strictly no dancing on the island. I felt inspired to write a lot during that time. Being so remote with a limited set-up, I had no way of working with anyone else in person, which, in some ways, immediately normalised the idea of collaborating with someone online.
Junmin (Livigesh) and I started chatting on zoom about music and life in general, how we both love to travel and missed those experiences. It inspired this spacey journey which we both were excitedly sending each other versions back and forth, and one day we had this finished song, Black Oak.” – Joe Hertz
