Puma Blue announces second album ‘Holy Waters

He has also shared the video for new single ‘Pretty’.

Puma Blue has announced the release of his second album. Titled ‘Holy Waters’, it will be release on 1st September via Blue Flowers. Alongside the news, he has also shared his new single ‘Pretty’, complete with a video which you can watch below. Speaking about ‘Pretty’, Puma Blue, aka Jacob Allen, has said: “‘Pretty’ is about feeling ugly. So ugly that sometimes you can’t believe the person who loves you sees you how they do. We were playing with beauty and ugliness when producing it, the live studio performance already felt so sweet and delicate, it needed something uglier and haunting so I howled these notes in the bridge and we fed my voice through a synth that made me sound like a swarm of bees.” The South London-born, Atlanta-based musician recorded the album in Eastbourne’s Echo Zoo Studios last year. It is the follow-up to 2021’s debut, ‘In Praise of Shadows’. Alongside his own work, Allen has been writing and collaborating with other artists recently too, including Loyle Carner, Biig Piig and Lava La Rue.
