News Big Joanie announce second album ‘Back Home’

They’re also sharing new single ‘In My Arms’.

Set for release on 4th November, Big Joanie have announced their new album ‘Back Home’.

“We were really ruminating on the idea of a home and what it means,”Stephanie Phillips says of the record’s title. “It’s about the different ideas of home, whether that’s here in the UK, back in Africa or the Caribbean, or a place that doesn’t really exist; it’s neither here nor there.”

Sharing new track ‘In My Arms’ alongside the news, Stephanie adds, “At this point I was getting tired of living in London and dreaming about another life. It’s about knowing you should go another way in life but you end up dreaming about the road you’ve already travelled down even though you know it won’t take you where you need to go.”

To celebrate the album news, Big Joanie will be performing a one-off show at Third Man London’s basement gig space this Friday, 29th July. Fans can sign up to the newsletter to get a chance to win an exclusive invite here. The group will also be heading out on a UK headline tour next year.
