LISTEN TO SINGER-SONGWRITER JEAN TAN’S

LO-FI JAZZ-HOP REMIX OF ‘OAK CHERRY WINE’,

A COLLABORATION WITH SOUTH KOREAN ARTISTE 양중은YANG JUNG EUN

As a follow up to her recently-released 5-track EP, ‘Blooms’, Singaporean singer-songwriter Jean Tan will be releasing a remix of her spellbinding single, ‘Oak Cherry Wine’. Produced by Singaporean music producer, Feng Lee, the remix is a collaboration with South Korean YouTube artiste 양중은 Yang Jung Eun and will be available on all music platforms on 29 January 2021.

Written in her distinctive, bluesy vein, ‘Oak Cherry Wine’ is a love song interwoven with Jean’s personal experiences. It tells the story of Jean’s personal struggles with kidney disease, and of the man who stood by her in the celebratory and difficult moments alike. Like all truly good romance stories, the song’s lyrics has a bittersweet tinge, and is all the better for it – a love that is tried and true.

Marrying Jean’s lyrical sensitivity with 양중은Yang Jung Eun’s dulcet vocals, this refreshing take stays true to its original composition. The remix is elevated by a new arrangement – a lo-fi beat, the jazz-hop push and pull, the syncopated electric piano – becoming more than just the sum of its parts. “It was a surreal experience working across borders while the world was on lockdown for much of 2020. The collab took off really well because Jung Eun is such an amazing and friendly guy! I guess we were just trying to make the best out of a crazy year”, says Jean Tan on working together with 양중은Yang Jung Eun.

Jean Tan will also be releasing an accompanying music video of the newly remixed version on 14 February 2021, made available on her YouTube channel. Directed by Stockholm-based Singaporean film director, Mandy Tay, the video features a pair of lovers dancing through the quotidian scenes of Stockholm city. Traditional meets contemporary, and ballet meets street dance, as the couple whirl around each other in a dream state, swirling like a glass of (oak cherry) wine.
