Jeangu Macrooy’s new album Summer Moon, the third studio album from the Surinamese-Dutch singer/songwriter, is his most candid album yet. In ten outspoken songs, Jeangu sings about longing to start a whole new life (Paris), the idea that the grass is always greener on the other side (A Little Greener, a collaboration with Pete Philly), the fears and insecurities of an open relationship (Come Back), giving in to lust and desire (Forbidden Fruit) and celebrating life (Alive). Jeangu has in part returned to the soulful sound of his widely praised debut album High On You, but Summer Moon also has notable electronic influences.
