One of this past week's standout releases come by way of the U.K. (Because, of course it does!)

On Friday, rising artist Joshua Idehen released his debut solo Learn to Swim, A Mixtape, which showcases a wealth of material navigating through a immense feelings and emotional journeys.

"Learn to Swim is collection of songs written and recorded in the middle months of 2021, around the same time, I started learning to swim," explains Idehen. "I'd convinced myself my bones were too dense to float, and actually, they are, so I'd given up for decades, until an old Swedish teacher told me, 'So you’re not a jellyfish, you're a shark; keep moving or die.' Still can't float, but I'm still learning.”

The very personal project comes after the singer's recent U.K. headlining tour.
