Toronto, ON – February 2, 2021 – Recording artist, Jack Kays, recently released his debut album, MIXED EMOTIONS, available globally on all platforms via Columbia Records. The album features eight songs that explore a narrative of addiction, loneliness, and mental health as well as redemption. Listen to the full album here.
Regarding MIXED EMOTIONS, Jack says, “This album represents the ups-and-downs of the past five years of my life. I know others have gone through what I have, and I want to share my story so they feel more comfortable with theirs. When I was at my lowest point, these songs helped me get through it, and I hope that they can do the same for others."
Additionally, Jack released the visual for TIRED. Directed by long-time collaborator, John Buchanan, the blue hued, animation flecked video finds Jack struggling through a nightmarish late night and all the emotions that entails. Watch the video here.
Hailing from Cincinnati, 22-year-old Jack garnered an army of fans who responded to his blend of hip hop, folk, and alternative as well as his transparency and vulnerability in sharing his personal experiences – both the difficult and the beautiful. Prior to the release of his debut album, Jack shared several tracks including MY HEAD, GIN N JUICE, BOTTOM OF THE BOTTLE, and introspective sleeper hit, MORBID MIND.
