Joshua Idehen released ‘I Got You Every Step Of The Way (For  Leone Ross)

Sweden based, British born Nigerian, Josh Idehen presents his beautifully compassionate single ‘I Got You Every Step Of The Way’ today.

Joshua Idehen, a mainstay of the UK jazz/electronic scene and chameleonic artist follows on from recent successes, which include being named a 2021 one-to-watch by NME as part of jazz crew Calabashed as well as contributing vocals for two  Mercury-nominated albums, with this latest solo offering his most captivating to date. 

Idehen also worked on the highly praised Sons Of Kemet album ‘Black To The  Future’ alongside Kojey Radical and D Double E and it is this experience that  Joshua brings to his new incarnation. 

Building on the foundations of ‘Don’t You Give Up On Me’ which received praise from the likes of Clash, Afropunk, Trench, The Quietus, Notion, and Fred Perry this latest cut is a warm-hearted display of unconditional love and support, as Joshua  Idehen shows no slowing of pace. 

Dance influenced and backed by soulful piano, the body of ‘I Got You Every Step Of  The Way’ has a warm and inviting character that couples brilliantly with Idehen’s trademark poetic lyrism and an infectious gospel chorus.  

Speaking on the track, Idehen explains; “Leone Ross is one of my best friends,  godmother to my daughter, and legit one of the reasons I’m still alive. I told her I’d write her a song. She likes it. Everything else is extra.” 

Eager to push boundaries and express himself Joshua met in Stockholm with producer Ludvig Parment aka Saturday, Monday and decided to work on a track exploring gospel house, rave and spoken word, in the vein of artists such as Faithless, The Streets, For Those I Love and Real Lies. The result is a forward-thinking,  impossible to define release which sets the pace for future offerings.
