Jeremy Loops has joined forces with iconic SA group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, releasing a new single on Friday called This Town

The track will appear on Jeremy's upcoming EP, Souvenirs

"We had this huge plan for 2020 to drop an album and tour, but yeah, plans don't exactly survive pandemics. So instead, I asked myself if I could pick anybody in the world to write with, who would that be? And if I could write any kinds of songs, even ones that wouldn't traditionally make it onto an album, what would those be?" Jeremy said in a press statement.

He added: "This wonderful collection of songs on Souvenirs and being bold enough to reach out to LSBM is a result of asking those questions in an otherwise strange time."

About the track, Ladysmith Black Mambazo said: "We would like people to get a sense of self-worth from the song and to be encouraged to work towards what they want in life and be patient and know that it will all work out in the end and don't be shy to ask for help if things are tough."

The music video includes clips of the stars singing in studio, as well as footage of them having fun and dancing to the tune.
