Joy Oladokun’s New Single “Purple Haze” Out Today

Breakthrough artist Joy Oladokun’s new single, “Purple Haze”, is out today on Amigo Records/Verve Forecast/Republic Records. The song, about love and the end of the world.

Of the song, Oladokun shares, “I wrote ‘Purple Haze’ while I was in LA after some wildfires, and I noticed the sky was not the color that it should be. It made me think about the world we live in and all the information we get on a daily basis. It almost feels like we might be on our way out as a species but there are wonderful things like family, friends, partners, dogs – things that inspire us towards beauty and excitement. Even if this all ends, it was worth the experience.”

Joy is currently in the midst of her first nationwide headline tour. Upcoming stops include Pittsburgh’s Thunderbird Music Hall, Washington DC’s Union Stage, Atlanta’s Terminal West and Nashville’s The Basement East (two nights) among many others. She will also join Maren Morris and My Morning Jacket for several shows this year and will make her Bonnaroo debut in June.
