Rosie Lowe unveils smooth new jam "Mango"

08 May 2019, 11:14 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Rosie Lowe has shared another taste of her YU record, with the sweet "Mango".

Arriving after "Birdsong" and "Pharoah", "Mango" is the third, and final single to be shared from Lowe's YU record before it drops on Friday (10 May).

The new single is inspired by a reversed tale of Adam & Eve that sees Eve trying to convince Adam to give in to her needs.

YU follows on from Lowe's 2016 debut record Control. Lowe explains, "I wanted to write about my experience of sharing my life with another as a lover, friend and partner."

Lowe's new album was created in close collaboration with Dave Okumu. Speaking to Best Fit about working with Okumu, Lowe says, "I want to work with people long-term, grow and develop with them – which is exactly what me and Dave have done. So we agreed to do this album together, no matter what happened or who was involved. We made that commitment to each other and it was natural that it would include writing together. It was actually quite scary going into this process and collaborating with him in that way. We thought, "Oh god we hope this works" because we’re best friends and long time collaborators. Luckily it did work and it was beautiful."

"Mango" is out now. YU lands 10 May via Wolf Tone. Rosie Lowe plays London's Rough Trade East on 10 May. Find out more.
