Listen to 'Beautiful Little Fools' - http://listen.platoon.ai/beautiful-li...

Jorja was inspired to write "Beautiful Little Fools" (at the age of 16) after reading "The Great Gatsby" and, in particular, a passage from the book in which Daisy expresses her hopes that her infant daughter would "be a fool - that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool". Jorja took issue with this statement and so used the phrase to form the basis of her song, in which she laments the restrictions that society and established social constructs place upon women.

The music video for the track - released on International Women's Day - draws upon the "Gatsby" aesthetic and sees three versions of Jorja from different walks of life crossing paths...
