The first release since Woods' 2019 LEGACY! LEGACY!, Water Made Us is a subtle reference to a well-known Toni Morrison quote, "All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was."
"Water Made Us feels like the most personal and vulnerable piece of art I've ever made. I love creating from source material, diving deep into a subject and extrapolating from what I discover.” Jamila says of the album. “We sat in the house for 2 years and I became my own source material. Shout out to the therapists, the astrologers, the family members and friends who listened, who helped me process and transform my journaled thoughts and questions into this body of work. I hope it feels like a playlist that carries you through the life cycle of a relationship, whatever stage of the journey your heart may be in."
Limited to 500 copies, the VMP exclusive version of Jamila Woods' Water Made Us is pressed on Transparent Sand Dollar vinyl at Memphis Record Pressing (MRP). The 1LP will arrive in a gatefold, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket with a download code.
