Jlin is Back with a New Album

Written by on January 18, 2024


Jlin will release a new album in March.

Akoma is Jlin’s first album since 2017’s Black Origami.

Across 11 tracks, she “sets a new benchmark” in her personal road map, according to Planet Mu, the label behind it.

We’re told to expect a new entry point into her sound and a new approach for both those who have been following diligently and those who are just now entering her world. It features guest appearances from Björk, Philip Glass, and Kronos Quartet, and folds classical, minimalist, and jazz influences into the 160 BPM rhythmic framework of Chicago footwork.

On Bandcamp, Jlin lists Philip Glass as one of her inspirations for the album, alongside Eartha Kitt, Nina Simone, Third Coast Percussion, and HBCU marching bands.
