Jessy Lanza releases ‘Anyone Around’, the latest from her upcoming album All the Time, out July 24th 2020 via Hyperdub. Following earlier singles Face and Lick In Heaven, Anyone Around comes with a collaborative video featuring cameos from members of Junior Boys, Savages, Caribou and Boy Harsher among many others.
The Zoom call visuals depict Jessy jamming alongside a motley cast: online tutorial personalities, fellow musicians and producers, and Jessy’s own family members. Written after her move to a new, unfamiliar city, Anyone Around seeks out companionship. “It’s hard for me to let go of anyone around,” she croons over a skittering beat. Like she did in NYC, Jessy again finds strange yet warm comfort from digital presences.
“I’m very grateful to be connected with everyone in this video, even if we’ve never met in person. Thank you to all of the amazing contributors who made this video possible!” Jessy says. “[After the move] I became absorbed in the world of online music production tutorials and message boards. Of course the feeling of isolation has taken on new meaning recently, as it’s become a new normal for people around the world.”
