Bundle of Tantrums by Jasmine Thompson on Apple Music

11 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

The prodigious British singer Jasmine Thompson has an astonishing talent for stripping down beloved pop songs and transforming them into precision-cut ice sculptures. Her stark, piano-led arrangements turn Bastille’s “Pompeii” and Naughty Boy’s “La La La” into minimalist showcases for her ghostly soprano, which can wring heavy emotions out of even the simplest lyrics. Thompson’s song selection is impeccable—Regina Spektor and Bruno Mars get the cover treatment as well—but her trilling, feather-light voice is the star attraction, even as it flits from heartbreak to heartbreak.

About Jasmine Thompson

London-born singer/songwriter Jasmine Thompson was first noticed at the age of just 13 for her YouTube videos covering various songs with her particularly smoky, eerie voice. After racking up millions of views of her videos of Taylor Swift and Naughty Boy covers, Thompson began receiving regular radio airplay on the BBC as well as gaining an expanding online fan base. Her cover of Chaka Khan's "Ain't Nobody" was used in an advertising campaign for the U.K. supermarket chain Sainsbury's and soon climbed the British charts. In September of 2013 she self-released her debut album, Bundle of Tantrums, and continued to upload new videos. She followed the album just a month later with an EP release titled Under the Willow Tree. In addition to releasing her own music, Thompson has collaborated with artists in the dance/EDM community, most notably with German DJ/producer Robin Schulz, who enlisted her to sing on his 2014 track "Sun Goes Down," which became an international dance hit. In early 2015, Thompson announced that she had signed with Atlantic Records and headed to the U.S. to collaborate with pop songsmiths like Jesse Shatkin and Emily Warren. Her first single for Atlantic, "Adore," arrived that spring with the Adore EP released later that year. After the release of Adore, Thompson released 15 different single tracks to streaming services between 2015 and 2017, collaborating with the likes of Hugel, Eden Prince, and Felix Jaehn, whose "Ain't Nobody (Loves Me Better)" topped the German singles charts for eight weeks. Her sophomore EP, Wonderland, arrived in 2017 and featured songwriting contributions by Meghan Trainor, Ross Golan, Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, and others. The Trainor co-penned single "Old Friends" appeared on Grey's Anatomy and was remixed by Jonas Blue. ~ Fred Thomas & Timothy Monger
