Jacob Collier Releases Astonishing A Cappella Rendition Of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" Featuring John Legend & Tori Kelly
New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Jacob Collier has delivered on the demand that fans have been making since 2021, when he first harmonized Yebba's rendition of "Bridge Over Troubled Water," earning millions of views and thousands of inspired comments across social media. For the past three years, the viral video left followers begging for a full-length rendition, and in a new single out today, he teams with John Legend and Tori Kelly to finish what he started. Expanding his arrangement of the Paul Simon classic, Collier conducts a six-minute mountain of vocals that begins with the original audio as posted on Instagram. After Yebba, Legend and Kelly each take the lead on the following verses, giving astonishing performances backed by the breathtaking, goosebump-inducing breadth of Collier's choral explosion.

As the final preview of Jacob Collier's forthcoming, star-studded album, Djesse Vol. 4, the song also speaks to the project's central pillar of celebrating the human voice. "My voice is only ever as full as the voices around me," Collier explains. "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."

Out February 29th via Hajanga/Interscope/Decca, Djesse Vol. 4 is Jacob Collier's first new record since his GRAMMY® nomination for Album of The Year in 2021. It also marks the final installment of a four-part series that has solidified his position as one of the most gifted minds in modern times, and one of the moment's most in-demand forces of creativity. "Bridge Over Troubled Water" (feat. John Legend & Tori Kelly) arrives on the heels of recent singles featuring Camilo, Shawn Mendes, Stormzy & Kirk Franklin, Michael McDonald & Lawrence, Brandi Carlile, John Mayer & Lizzy McAlpine, and a co-write with Remi Wolf, but Djesse Vol. 4 includes a total of 16 sweeping songs and a staggering list of special guests. Chris Martin, aespa, Madison Cunningham, Chris Thile, Yelle, CHIKA, Anoushka Shankar, The Aeolians 2018 Choir, Lindsey Lomisand his mother Suzie Collier all appear on top of the album's connective thread and beating heart: a collective "Audience Choir" of 150,000 fans' voices, which Collier recorded in every corner of the world across his last two years of touring. "Collier collaborates widely while also singing, playing instruments, arranging, producing, and engineering himself," as Vulture said when naming Djesse Vol. 4 one of 2024's most anticipated albums. "Your fave literally could never."
