Jacko Hooper – Muttered Words (Official Lyric Video)

“Jacko Hooper tells us: Love never ages. It warms and keeps the fire in the oven. Composition muttered Words – soothes us with the warmth of Indie Folk and the flow of vital energy.”

“Любовь никогда не бывает слишком старой, – говорит нам Jacko Hooper. Она согревает и сохраняет огонь в печи. Композиция Muttered Words – успокаивает нас теплотой Indie Folk и потоком жизненной энергии.”


This is the final single release from Jacko Hooper this year, following new releases every other month of the year.

Tracks have seen radio airplay on BBC Introducing and KCRW and have been successfully playlisted by a host of premium independent curators.

The track is bittersweet, melancholic and speaks of needing to leave a relationship or situation for the greater good having exhausted all other options. It’s time to move on but the journey is going to be difficult for everyone involved.
