After five years of absence, Marike Jager has returned with brand new music. Besides the collaboration with V2 Records, Marike has also just announced that she’ll be part of a collaboration with agency Friendly Fire.
Believe the hype: Marike Jager is back with a vengeance. Over the last fifteen years, the singer-songwriter has created an innovative, highly personal body of work in The Netherlands and beyond. Jager kicked off her career with the talent award Grote Prijs van Nederland, while her records have racked up four nominations for the prestigious Edison music prize. As an acclaimed live act, she headlined several sold-out club and theatre tours and played every major Dutch festival, bowing to thousands of slap-happy music lovers. So far, so good.
But there is news: after the five years of absence it’s time for something different. With her new single Wasted - on which Marike collaborates with producer Paul Willemsen (Michelle David and the Gospel Sessions) and mixer Tchad Blake (Arctic Monkeys, The Black Keys and Sheryl Crow) – Marike shows a new side of herself where strings, synths and handcrafted samples form an important thread throughout the music. The challenging, atmospheric and unmistakable Marike Jager.
