Jax Jones & Calum Scott Share New Single ‘Whistle’

GRAMMY®-nominated producer, DJ, and record label executive, Jax Jones teams up with BRIT nominated Calum Scott to deliver a high-energy electro-pop/dance cut entitled Whistle
Out now via Polydor Records, Whistle is a song about giving a lover a second chance, a relatable message flawlessly conveyed through Calum Scott's powerhouse vocals. Backing Calum's oustanding vocals we have a killer electronic production that features intricate guitar riffs seamlessly intertwined with a memorable beat, lush piano chords, expansive synths and infectious percussive elements that together create an overall uplifting, feel-good atmosphere perfect to get you dancing in no time. 
The official video for Whistle was shot in London on an old bus that Jax used to ride in Elephant & Castle, his local borough. The opening shot is little Jax helping his mum with the shopping. The lives of the sundry passengers unfold as a special motion control (MoCo) camera follows them on their travels from morning until evening. Jax co-directed the video with Charlie Sarsfield (Stormzy, George Ezra). Check it out below!



Jax Jones says:
2023 will be a busy year for me; Whistle is just the start. I'm pleased I get to kick things off with a collab from Calum. His vocals are outstanding and bring so much class and emotion to Whistle. With this run of music, I’m digging into my influences from when I was young and trying to place more of myself, my life, and my inspiration into the creative. That’s why a lot of the songs sound nostalgic and why there are lots of visual nods to my early life. For example, we shot the video for Whistle on my local buses, the 176 and the 363. I'd catch those buses nearly every day, either to my music classes or to help my mum with the shopping. Using those routes allowed me to show my version of London, such as the multicultural aspects that influenced me musically and make up so much of who I am today. The little boy you see in the video is me. I'm travelling to my music class and I'm helping my mum with the shopping. By showing these influences I’m exploring the idea of taking things that you grew up with and inserting yourself into them. In doing so, you're taking ownership of those things rather than putting them on a pedestal now that you're older. I’m excited to share the new music I’ve written and produced. I hope you enjoy Whistle and remember it's just the start.

Calum Scott says:
So happy to be collaborating with Jax on this record! I remember hearing an early demo of ‘Whistle’ and immediately wanted in with the boys to finish the song and record a vocal! Big fan of Jax as an artist but after hanging out with him and his family, I’m a big fan of him as a person too! Excited for everyone to hear ‘Whistle’!
