SINGER-SONGWRITER Jazz Morley has released a charity single to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War which will be premiered in London today.

The former Bournemouth School for Girls student said she was thrilled to be working alongside SSAFA, the armed forces charity, for the release of her latest single, Disconnected.

“I wrote this song almost ten years ago when my brother went to Afghanistan and have never felt the time was right to release it until now,” she told the Echo.

“We are releasing Disconnected on November 9, two days before Remembrance Sunday, which also marks 100 years since the end of the First World War.

“I always wanted this song to be able to portray my gratitude to the men and women, past and present, in the armed forces. After discussing this prospect with my brother, I chose to donate the proceeds of the sales of Disconnected to SSAFA, a charity very close to his heart.”

She added: “Thousands of volunteers all over the country give their time and energy in order to help those who have put their lives, quite literally, on the line.”

The Bournemouth-based singer’s previous summer single, Safe Place, made Radio One’s playlist in 2017.

Since then Jazz has performed with Michael Buble and Jools Holland and most recently The Royal Albert Hall supporting Rodriguez.

Jazz can also list the likes of Elton John as a fan after he described her as “fantastic” and as “representative of the new era for music”.

This afternoon, Jazz is set to give a live performance of her single Disconnected, alongside a military band, at a special launch event at Whitehall Place.
