New Single From Jake McMullen – “Giving Up”

jm

This fall, Nashville-based songwriter Jake McMullen will release a new EP that follows his critically-acclaimed Always EP. Yesterday, USA Today premiered his single “Giving Up” and called it a “startling ballad that is equal parts Bon Iver and Bruce Hornsby, name-checking the 1980s but still sounding fresh.”

“‘Giving Up’ was produced by Micah Tawlks and myself. This song served as a very liberating experience for me while working on it as I felt like I really didn’t put any limits on what I could or couldn’t try.  It has acted almost as a catalyst for the mindset I now have when making music,” said McMullen about the track. “Going with what feels right and not thinking too much about things. Everybody involved was also essential to making it what it became — Dabney Morris (drums), Molly Parden(vocals), Steve McKellar (bass), Kevin Dailey (guitar). Excited to finally be able to share it with everyone.”
