Jorja Smith has dropped off her first solo release of 2020, “Kiss Me in the Morning.” Taken from the forthcoming Netflix musical drama The Eddy, the track hears the British songstress diving headfirst into jazzy territory. She beautifully sings over an upbeat sonic backdrop, complete with scat singing and her ever-impressive vocal range.
The Eddy is helmed by La La Land director Damien Chazelle and focuses on the owner of a Paris jazz club who ends up getting involved with criminals. He must then fight for his business, his band and his daughter. The series stars André Holland of Moonlight, Joanna Kulig, Amandla Stenberg, Tahar Rahim and Leila Bekhti. Randy Kerber composed and co-wrote the music with Glen Ballard.
