The follow up single to the amazing Through The Silence (which kicked off the most recent Groovement radio show), Missing You is a sombre, Motown-recalling ballad co-produced by Jermaine with South London’s Sey G.
Powerful Mancunian spoken word artist Reece Williams joins them.
Ultimately, ‘Missing You’ is a portrayal of somebody who can’t let go of their emotional baggage and a depiction of the bitterness/darkness that builds over time when holding onto pain/trauma. We have all been guilty of this, that’s why it was so easy for me to connect to the character’s emotions.Jermaine Peterson
When I say ‘Harking back to Motown’ I mean the vulnerability and emotion that male artists (such as Smokey Robinson, Al Green, etc.) used to display in their music. I personally feel that, due to ever-changing societal norms, we have lost the vulnerable male to a screen of masculine bravado these days and truly emotional music has become a rarity. That’s why I feel that this song is important.
