Joji Shares Video for New Single 'Will He'; Announces New EP
Today Japanese artist Joji shares his latest single "Will He" alongside a stunning video from up-and-coming director Matthew Dillon Cohen (Goldlink's "Crew" video). The video depicts a dreamlike house party gone wrong which helps to visualize the song's isolating qualities in a unique way. The single/video is a first taste of Joji's debut EP, In Tongues, which is being released Friday, November 3 via label/creative collective 88rising.
Speaking on the track/video, Joji says; "It is a dark mystery that is open to interpretation. I think the song is significant to all of us because it's just a good old ballad about losing someone except you're also a little crazy as well. Maybe you both were lol. It's important to be honest about how toxic we are."

Osaka, Japan-born singer and producer Joji is the multi-talented visionary, capturing a following from every corner of the internet. The Osaka, Japan-born musician defies convention - his songs are characterized by down tempo, melancholic themes and soulful vocals, layered over lush grimy textures, blending elements of trap, folk, electronic, and R&B.

His only two 2017 songs thus far - "I Don't Wanna Waste My Time" and "Rain On Me" - have already been lauded for their "beautiful, captivating, understated quality" (Pigeons & Planes) and "lush emotion and thoughtful execution" (Earmilk).
In Tongues is the first full project from Joji and it is supported with beautiful and moving visuals for "Will He" - directed by Matthew Dillon Cohen (Goldlink) - and "Window" - directed by critically acclaimed duo BRTHR (Travis Scott, The Weeknd).
