Released via Ninja Tune, ‘Always Been’ / ‘First Time Back’ have already become staples of Jordan’s live DJ sets over the past year.


The release is also the first in a series of double singles from Jordan that are scheduled for release in 2022. You can listen to I. JORDAN’s ‘Always Been’ / ‘First Time Back’ below.

Speaking about the artwork for the double single, Jordan said: “As a trans person I’m forever changing. Being visible in the image without directly showing my face allowed me to avoid capturing something I might feel unconnected to in a few months time, but still shows off parts of my trans-ness.

“I like to see these paired single releases as little snippets of me that reflect how much I change musically as an artist, but also how often my gender expression can change.”

Jordan, who was nominated for Best Producer at this year’s BandLab NME Awards, will perform at Glastonbury this weekend. You can see their upcoming live dates below.
