American singer-songwriter Jack Newsome has released his debut extended play “All Dressed Up,” a tracklist dedicated to his fans from all over the world.
“It’s kind of like a care package coming out of COVID-19,” Newsome told CNN Philippines’ New Day on Wednesday.
His EP consists of seven songs, namely: “All Dressed Up,” “Friends,” “Hurt People,” “Easy on Me,” “Arms,” “The Year The World Stood Still” and “All Dressed Up (Hot Mix).”
The EP was released via 12Tone Music, with some of the songs written before and during the pandemic, he said.
The 25-year old singer-songwriter explained that he wanted his songs to be mostly upbeat, giving his fans “a little shot of adrenaline” to get them dancing.
“I wanted this project to feel like it’s taking you out of this really dark time,” Newsome explained.
He added: “A lot of songs are dance-y and I want to let my fans know that it’s okay to dance even in the hardest times.”
Newsome was a former member of the Manhattan-based boy band NY5 and the Berlin-based band New District. He then decided to go solo and joined the American songwriting competition show “Songland” on NBC where he became a finalist in 2019.
He has also worked with artists such as Meghan Trainor, Ryan Tedder and Sean Kingston.
