Anyone familiar with Jacob Collier’s first four albums will no doubt be bracing themselves for the unmistakable musical spectacle that will be Djesse Vol. 4 – the multi-instrumentalist’s hotly anticipated fifth studio album, due later this year.

Guitar fans especially will be keeping a keen eye open for the album, which is set to feature both Willow and Steve Vai – the latter of whom was snapped shredding on command for Collier during a studio session earlier this year.
