Jodie Harsh reveals that she’s been in the studio with Jade Thirlwall for solo sessions: “We’ve been playing and jamming about”
DJ and queer icon Jodie Harsh has revealed that she’s recently hit the studio with none other than Jade Thirlwall.
In case you couldn’t guess by the moniker, Jodie’s music is abrasive, loud and fun; pulling in all kinds of different directions, and inspired by the likes of house music, hiNRG and disco.
Chatting to OfficialCharts.com about her new single Shock, Jodie revealed that former Little Mix member and future pop superstar Jade has been one of the artists she’s recently collaborated with in the studio.
“I did some songwriting sessions recently with Jade,” Jodie told us. “We’ve just done [some work together] but it’s all kind of half-finished stuff at the moment. I need to get in and really kind of finish the production.
“It’s just some ideas [at the moment.] We’ve just been playing about.”
And for those of you wondering whether we’ll see these songs arrive as part of Jade’s much-anticipated solo material, Jodie says that she’s so far unsure what the songs will be used for.
“I don’t know whether it would be for her [solo] stuff,” she continued, “or for me, or for other artists to sing, or for other artists to sing for me. We were just jamming.”
Jade, of course, is best known as a member of Little Mix, who entered an extended hiatus earlier this year so each individual member could focus on solo projects.
It’s already been announced that, going forward, Jade has signed to Sony’s RCA Records as a solo artist, and also taken on the team behind Harry Styles and Lizzo as her management.
As for Jade’s bandmates, Leigh-Anne Pinnock is now signed to Warner Records as a solo artist and hired TaP Music (Lana Del Rey, Haillee Steinfeld and formerly Dua Lipa) for management. Nothing has yet to be announced for Perrie Edwards’ solo credentials, but we do know she is currently in the studio recording music.officialcharts.com
