>we will never experience the joy of hearing a proper album release from him, not a bunch of old demos
Will we see some new Jai this year? Who knows. I really think so, but who knows.
Is Jai still making music? Categorically, definitely yes. Rodaidh McDonald confirmed it a while back, and A.K. confirmed it to be also.
You will hear new Jai.
The question is when.
After the leak, Jai definitely moved on from the leak material and started making new stuff. If he's been making new stuff at a steady rate for two years then I don't think it's unreasonable to assume we'll see new Jai this year.
April is coming soon.
this, pretty sure his debut will release this year. I remember a bunch of stuff coming out in 2014 saying he was in the studio, working on an album for two years is more than most artists take, and Jai said he's a perfectionist, so it makes sense that he'll be done this year
