The release caps off an incredible year for Jordan who released his new album “What We Call Life” in September to a flood of plaudits from the likes of The Line of Best Fit, Popmatters, Wordplay Magazine: “essential modern listening”, “understated yet captivating style”, “destined to be a classic”, “a masterpiece”. The record was #1 in the "Official Record Store Chart Top 40”, #2 in the "Official Hip Hop and R&B Albums Chart Top 40” and #5 in the "Official Vinyl Albums Chart Top 40”. Playlisted and in heavy rotation at BBC 6M and Jazz FM, Jordan played his first live shows in 18 months at Cross The Tracks, Repercussions (WHP) and All Points East (guesting with Loyle Carner), did a whirlwind sold-out UK instore tour and a series of incredible live sessions at the legendary BBC Maida Vale studios for Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC 6M) and Jo Whiley (BBC R2), Worldwide FM x Paul Smith, Mahogany and is currently hosting the new series of Tearjerker on BBC Sounds.

2022 will see Jordan heading to North America on tour with Bonobo before returning to Europe for his biggest headline shows to date in Germany, Netherlands, Scandinavia, Belgium, France and the UK finishing up at O2 Academy Brixton on 26th April.
