Silken-voiced siren Janita releases her latest single recalling passions of true love called simply, I Do.

This lovely number arrives on the heels of her triumphant October 2019 single release, Bliss I Once Had This, which garnered national TV, press, and media in the United States and in her native Finland. This new single recalls the passions of true love, and will be released on February 14th, 2020 (Valentine’s Day).

 “I have a restless soul, an innate curiosity which pushes me to learn, and to change,” says Janita. “Uncharted territory is terribly exciting for me. I often feel like I’m on the edge of something new, even with those I’ve loved for years and years. I Do is about the renewal of one’s love for someone––love being the most thrilling of all uncharted territories––and a renewal of one’s commitment to exploring all the corners of the map of that relationship.”
I Do is an anthem of clarity and hope after the battles have been fought and lessons learnt; about opening your heart to the possibility of something better. It is all advice we can learn from and evolve as empathetic humans. What a Valentine.

Look around us, dear…It’s a new frontier

Janita stunned the audience during her last performance at Mercury Lounge, with her rich, emotional voice and commanding stage presence. At that show, she played an array of her past work and introduced some of the new songs from her upcoming album, Here Be Dragons.

Janita’s striking gender-bending look and mesmerizing ice blue eyes bring to mind Annie Lennox and Bowie’s Thin White Duke-era guise; her voice is pure lilting compassion. I Do is unapologetically full of heart: intelligent, thoughtful pop for those who have loved, lost, and are ready to get back in the saddle.

Janita’s new album, Here Be Dragons, arrives May 1st, 2020. “Here be dragons” means dangerous or unexplored territories, in imitation of a medieval practice of putting illustrations of dragons, sea monsters, and other mythological creatures on uncharted areas of maps where potential dangers were thought to exist. For those about to slay the next proverbial dragon, Janita salutes you with this soundtrack, released through independent label ECR Music Group.

Janita will perform at the legendary Rockwood Music Hall on the eve of the album’s release, April 30th. This is not to be missed.
