Multi-talented musician Jacob Collier shared a new song, “Little Blue,” featuring Brandi Carlile. The track is set to land on the final installment in Collier’s landmark album series, Djesse Vol. 4, due out February 29, 2024 via Hajanga/Decca/Interscope.

Collier launched the multiple-Grammy-winning Djesse series with Vol. 1 in 2018. Volumes 2 and 3 arrived in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

As per a press release: “While his music is proudly unclassifiable, Collier enters a distinct sonic universe with each volume, which he likens to the different phases of a day. With Vol. 4, the saga ends at the incandescent light of dawn, alchemising a full spectrum of emotion into a massive, joyous moment of awakening and human potential.”

Jacob also spoke about the epic project’s finale:

“Five years ago, in the wake of a musical journey that had begun in solitude, I set out on an epic adventure with a big dream – a collaborative quadruple album, and by way of that – to learn music, and life, from the greatest teachers of all – my heroes.

In many ways, Djesse Vol. 4 is an album that’s taken me 30 years to make. It is, to me, a celebration of humankind – the way that I see it and hear it, built with musicians from every corner of the world. To be culminating this collaborative experiment with a 100,000 voice audience-choir, a sound that permeates the heart of this album, feels like I’ve found the heart of it. My voice is only ever as full as the voices around me. Everyone is welcome, and part of the tapestry. And most of all, creating this album has reminded me that life is full of magic, if only we can remember to look for it in each other.”

Collier previewed Djesse Vol. 4 with “Little Blue” featuring Brandi Carlile.

“‘Little Blue’ is such a gorgeous song and Jacob is a generational talent,” Carlile stated. “I spend an embarrassing amount of time following him and studying his mind bendingly beautiful music. Getting to climb inside of it and be a part of his creation is a wonderful twist of fate.”
