We may have had to wait five years for Jarryd James’ follow-up to Thirty One, but with all its nocturnal magic and soul-fuelled introspection, P.M. is well worth it.
Written after hours to ensure there was zero distraction, P.M.‘s all-consuming nature was made with the help of James’ handpicked list of producers including Clams Casino (A$AP Rocky, Vince Staples), Malay Ho (Frank Ocean, John Legend, Alicia Keys) FrancisGotHeat (Drake, Travis Scott) and Joel Little (Khalid, Lorde).
Recorded in studios in Los Angeles, Nicaragua, Brisbane, Auckland and New York, the album’s instruments are all played by Jarryd James. James is of course the 2x multi-Platinum artist whose break-out single ‘Do You Remember’ has been the 4th most Shazamed song in Australia for the past decade.
It’s looking likely that P.M. will follow in the footsteps of Thirty One, which debuted at #2 on the ARIA chart back in 2015. P.M.‘s second single ‘Miracles’ was played across BBC Radio 1 and added to Spotify’s New Music Friday in nine countries, New Music Daily in seven countries and New in Alternative in 85 countries.

“Arriving five years after he first enriched our lives with Thirty One, Jarryd James’ P.M. serves as a testament to his growth and continual evolution as an artist. A record that feels – as its title suggests – tailor-made for the late night, P.M. is equal parts moving and intriguing, with slick vocals and downtempo production making this a vital addition to anyone’s collection.”
– Tyler Jenke
“With P.M. Jarryd James explores the dark, seductive mystique of the night. It’s a meticulous, polished effort that see’s the R&B crooner at his most confident. A vision wholly realised and executed with expert precision.”
– Geordie Gray
