Danish artist Jonas, the luminary of Scandinavian soul music, unveils a heartfelt neo-soul testimony dedicated to the love of his life, and it’s a symphony for lovers worldwide.
Collaborating with the talented Aaron Wood on Flugelhorn, Jonas introduces the soul-stirring single, ‘You Are Amazing,‘ a musical ode expressing his love to his beloved wife. The accompanying video, filmed by Waqas Ali (Outlandish), premiering exclusively on scandinaviansoul.com (see top video), captures the multi-instrumentalist serenading her with vocals that echo with genuine emotion.
Written while his wife was pregnant with their third child, Jonas explained,
“This song is a testament to the love and admiration I hold for my wife. I wanted to express how she has been my source of strength and positivity. It’s a message of love and gratitude that I hope will leave the listener with a warm loving feeling inside.”
The single’s production is nothing short of exceptional, adorned with velvety keys, tender horns, and lush bass notes. The poetic grace woven into the lyrics paints an emotional portrait of true love.
Heralded as the ‘Godfather of Scandinavian Soul’ on the international stage, Jonas boasts a musical legacy spanning over 25 years. He has garnered acclaim and reverence for his soulful compositions, both within Scandinavia and across the globe. ‘You Are Amazing‘ serves as another testament to Jonas’ continued mastery of neo-soul music.
In a touching parallel, Jonas joins several artists and bands who have dedicated songs to their loved ones. Much like George Harrison’s tender and timeless composition ‘Something‘ for his wife Patti Boyd, their video also featured the Beatles’ wives; Boyd, Yoko Ono, Linda Eastman, and Maureen Starkey.
And just like this neo-soul gem, ‘You Are Amazing‘ will also resonate universally with anyone who holds a special someone close to their heart.
This enchanting single serves as a teaser for Jonas’s upcoming album, “Be The Light,” scheduled for release on January 12th, coinciding with his 50th birthday, promising a smooth continuation of his soulful legacy.
