An alluring endeavor that is both true to its roots and forward-thinking.
On July 14th, Evan Patterson's brilliant Jaye Jayle will release the new album, Don't Let Your Love Life Get You Down, via Pelagic Records, furthering a strong discography known for its ever-growing composition. Lead single Black Diamonds and Bad Apples, which is joined by a mesmerizing stop motion animation video by Regan Heckscher, sets expectations high for the what's expected to be another boundless full-length to come. It's equal parts soothing as it is vulnerable, making this one profound listen to indulge in.
Evan Patterson comments on the single:
"I’ve been doing a lot of self-work since the pandemic. It was a trying time for everyone to say the least. To make the choice of where and how to focus my powers, to be selfless and understanding, and to equally be capable of taking care of myself as well as others. It’s a simple song about a very difficult and complex time in my life. It’s a song about excepting my recent divorce and the commitment of forever-love regardless of the separation."
