Jesca Hoop returns with a new single called “Shoulder Charge,” featuring Lucius. The title is inspired by Elbow’s song “Friend of Ours,” which references the sensation of human contact when brushing against another person or being in a confined space with strangers. Hoop was prompted to reflect on how we often hide personal issues from each other, while it’s really a universal practice among us all. Laced with melodic harmonies and a uniting message, “Shoulder Charge” is the first single from Hoop’s upcoming album, Stonechild, due on July 5 on Memphis Industries.
