Jay Som Announces Pirouette 7-Inch Out 1/26 + Shares A-Side
Jay Som - singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer Melina Duterte - released her breakout debut album Everybody Works last year. Since then, the album has received widespread critical acclaim, earning "Best of 2017" round-up nods from the likes of NPR Music, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Stereogum, Paste, Consequence of Sound, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, SPIN, Newsweek, Exclaim!, Under The Radar and many more. Today Jay Som announces new material from the Everybody Works sessions: a 7-inch entitled Pirouette featuring brand new tracks "Pirouette" and "O.K., Meet Me Underwater." The 7-inch will be released digitally and on vinyl January 26th, but the title track can be heard now. Pre-order Pirouette HERE, see below for album art and listen to the A-Side HERE.
Jay Som on Pirouette: "Both of these tracks were made during the spring of 2016 - the first demo stages for Everybody Works. They were fun to write and record but felt out of place on the track list during the finalization of the album. These tracks remain close to my heart and I'm really grateful they're finally out in the world."
Jay Som has more tour dates coming up, including a West Coast co-headline tour with Japanese Breakfast. See below to find a show near you, watch Jay Som's NPR Tiny Desk for a sneak peek of what to expect live, and get your tickets HERE.
