Kojaque debuts new video for ‘EASTSIDE’ & Director’s Cut album version

Avatar

The The Ballad Of Jackie Dandelion Director’s Cut version of Phantom of The Afters is out on Soft Boy Records today.

After dropping new songs ‘London Lido’ and ‘The Ballad Of Jackie Dandelion’, last week, Kojaque has released a Director’s Cut version of the album that replaces the “Jackie took the soup” chant-featuring intro, and replaces it with ‘The Ballad Of Jackie Dandelion’, and places ‘London Lido’ as track three, and new song ‘Eastside’ as the album’s final track.

A video for that song is out now.

“I wanted to make a Directors Cut of Phantom Of The Afters because there were a couple of songs that I loved that got left off the original project mainly because a vinyl can only hold about 45 minutes of music. All of the tunes feel like they sit in the same world so it felt right to release them as part of an alternative version of the album rather than saving them for a future project. They need to be Jackie Dandelion tunes.

Releasing the record as an independent artist has been nerve wracking but the response has been crazy. I always imagined the Ballad Of Jackie Dandelion as being the intro to the record so to have that go viral without ever being released felt like vindication. Just feels good to have complete control over what I put out in the world, doing shit however I feel like doing it. Feels like I’ve gotten back to making art without worrying what people think, making it because it’s what I want to see in the world, even if what I make comes out a little grotesque. Fuck it, the best art is usually a little rough around the edges.”
