Just ahead of the release of her debut LP Alice Jemima, that is due out March 3rd, 2017 via Sunday Best, English singer Alice Jemima is thrilled to share the artful video for her viral cover of Blackstreet’s iconic track “No Diggity”. Watch it HERE. The single, which appears on her debut self-titled album, was her initial breakthrough single which went viral and now stands at over 3 million plays. The video was shot in London and features freestyle skate crew High Rollaz.

In Jemima’s own words: “I first chose to cover 'No Diggity' after hearing Chet Fakers striped-back version of it - but I wasn’t planning to do anything with it, I was just playing around in my studio. But then I played it to my family and friends and they loved it, so I put it up on my Soundclound. I definitely didn’t expect it to get the amount of plays that it did in such a short amount of time, I’m still completely bowled over by that, and this is why it’ll be on my album.”
Furthermore, Alice Jemima will make her US debut next month at SXSW, her complete performance schedule is forthcoming.

Inspired by the likes of Shura and the xx, her efforts on this standout debut entice with alluring, beat-driven frameworks and addictive, saccharine vocals. The creeping “Diamonds And Bones”is whisper soft but full of foreboding; the pretty "Under The Radar" skips around a pulsating bassline, while the classic-sounding “So” marries an exploratory xx-esque guitar figure with percussive beats and Jemima's soft croon. “So” was also the song that helped shape the sound of her album “My voice can sound really young – it needs to be surrounded by the right things to really shine, so I found that beats and darker keys and minimal guitar fits around my voice nicely.”
Jemima’s debut Liquorice EP was released back in June to a receptive audience, with the lead track “Liquorice” being selected by Radio 1’s Huw Stephens as his Tip Of The Week and John Kennedy’s X-Posure Big One on Radio-X and to date has over 470,000 Spotify streams. Her subsequent single release “Dodged a Bullet” has now been play listed at Radio 1 and currently stands at over 755,000 Spotify streams. Jemima's initial breakthrough arrived in 2014 when her sultry cover of Blackstreet's “No Diggity” suddenly blazed its way to nearly 3 million plays prompting multiple label offers and a subsequent label deal with Sunday Best.

With a recent Ladyhawke tour support under her belt, as well as performing live on the Radio 1 BBC Introducing Stage at their summer Big Weekend live show in Devon and owning the stage at a packed out Big Top performance at both Bestival & Camp Bestival, 2016 has been an exciting year for Alice Jemima and with the upcoming release of her debut album, 2017 looks even more promising.
