I’m careful with the word ‘perfect’, but Jarryd James has made the year’s finest ballad with 1000x, his BROODS-featuring new single.
The first single from Jarryd’s debut international album and what will be a new release of some description for the Australian market, 1000x starts off with Jarryd sounding the freshest & most confident he ever has, and stems from a heartfelt half-day writing sesh with Joel Little.
“It’s the first song I wrote when I first started with working with Joel Little. He was still living in New Zealand… so I went over to Auckland and spent half a day and we came up with this song,” he told triple j.
The song was what Georgia off BROODS actually chose to walk down the aisle to at her wedding.
“I still remember the first time I heard Jarryd sing and I almost cried… I’m obsessed with love songs and got really attached to it and ended up walking down the aisle to the demo.”
NOW I WANNA CRY.
