Jamila Woods has released ‘Practice’, the final preview of her new album Water Made Us ahead of its arrival on Friday (October 13). Following previous singles ‘Tiny Garden’, ‘Boomerang’, and ‘Good News’, the track features a guest appearance from Saba and comes with a video directed by Carlos López Estrada. Check it out below.
“‘Practice’ is a song I made with McClenney about releasing the pressure we put on ourselves in relationships,” Woods explained in a statement. “I was trying to shift how I often evaluate relationships based on their potential for longevity rather than on how I feel in the moment. The song is about how we can learn to just enjoy ourselves and be present with someone without needing to ‘get everything right’ or ‘have everything together.’ My friend Carlos López Estrada came up with this concept of creating faces with bodies in a way that’s sensual and silly at the same time. The whole process was very playful and experimental, which suits the song perfectly.”
