2017 NMG award winner Jake Aldridge has announced the release of his next single, ‘Numb’.
The new song, which features guest vocals from Kelly Jenns and was produced by ACJ Beats, will be available via all digital channels from November 5th 2017.
Jenns, a childhood friend of Jake’s, has worked with him previously on several songs including ‘Pieces of Me’ and ‘Palm of your hand’.
“I have collaborated with Kelly many times in the past, but I really think this is our best ever song together and it’s amazing to work with such a close and long time friend”, Aldridge said.
“I’m excited by the way things are moving for me at the moment, I’ve been writing for over 12 years now and It really feels like it’s all coming together”, he added.
Aldridge was presented with the Audience Choice Award last month at the Corn Exchange, Cambridge, after receiving more votes than 109 other musicians from East Anglia.
Aldridge started writing lyrics over 12 years ago after his father passed away in a tragic accident. He has often described his relationship with songwriting as being a type of therapy.
Aldridge was also recently invited to perform for Billie Laurie, an award-winning producer who has worked with Sir Paul McCartney, The Bee Gees & Tina Turner among others. The gig was televised on Sky TV and was sponsored by Dingwalls Music, the same company responsible for discovering Ellie Goulding. Aldridge is currently holding talks with Dingwalls, who have expressed eagerness to continue working with him.
