Nubya Garcia returns with new song “Fortify”

UK jazz trailblazer Nubya Garcia hasn’t released a solo album since her great 2020 debut full-length Source, but she just put out a new solo single, so maybe something is stirring. The new song’s called “Fortify,” and it was made with Daniel Casimir on double bass, Deschanel Gordon on keys, and Sam Jones on drums.

It’s an lush, immersive piece of music, and Nubya says, “This tune is about searching and seeking ways to protect and strengthen yourself within the disruption and chaos of life sometimes. It’s about working out what you are trying to protect in your worlds; about creating safe spaces and practices to let go of your stresses, and to elevate the joy within those spaces and practices.”
