Singer-songwriter August 08 welcomes a new chapter in his artistry with the Jhené Aiko-assisted “Water Sign” single in tandem with signing to ALLEL Sound, the new label venture from six-time Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum labelmate. It serves as the lead track from TOWARDS THE MOON, the second part of his two-part debut album project, titled SEASICK—out today.
“August is an incredible writer, singer, and artist whose music speaks to me on so many levels,” Jhené shares in regard to signing the musician to her record label. “As a fellow Los Angeles native, I am so proud of him. August’s talent, love for songwriting, and hands-on approach with his art is something I can relate to and have a great amount of respect for. It was a natural evolution of our friendship and musical collaboration to have him become the first artist signed to ALLEL Sound. I couldn’t be more excited to work with August.”
Speaking on their newly inked venture, August 08 adds, “As a longtime fan of Jhene’s, I’m really humbled by her belief in me as an artist. She set the bar as an independent R&B artist from LA who wrote her own rules and made no compromises in following her dreams. We really vibe on music and creativity and I’m excited to go on this journey with her.”
August 08’s new project is comprised of six songs with features from Joji and of course, Jhené Aiko. The EP follows the release of TOWARDS THE SUN, which arrived on April 29th with “500 Days” and “Keep Me Around” among others. Listen to standout cut “Water Sign” below.
