You Can Now Apply To Be Jai Paul's London-Based Intern
The world has been patiently waiting for an official release from Jai Paul for almost three years now. Way back in 2013, an album of demos was leaked and prompted a swift Ocean-like departure before anything other than “BTSTU” and “Jasmine” made way to the masses. Paul claimed in his first and only tweet that his laptop was stolen and the culprit was the one that unleashed the only body of work we have from the reclusive r&b experimentalist, that, while incomplete, is all we’ve got to hold on to.
Then, early this year, Paul and brother A.K. announced the founding of The Paul Institute, a sign of life. They released A.K.’s debut solo single “Landcruisin'” before retreating into silence once more. Now The Paul Institute is sending up a flair for help from London-based graphic designers, posting an ad for an internship on The University for The Arts London, seeking designers who will provide the man and will power to shape the institutes aesthetic. And while it doesn’t seem that any new music is on the way just yet, this could be a good sign of what’s to come. Applications are being accepted until December 12th. Run, don’t walk to turn yours in.
