JMSN announces The Blue Album and single Street Sweeper
JMSN, an artist we featured on our watch list section when he first came out, has recently announced that his new self-titled album will be officially released on December 9, 2014. “The ‘Blue Album’ actually started after Priscilla was done in 2012,” says JMSN, “It was a process that put me with at least 40 songs that had to be cut down to the 14 which are on there now.” The album, available for pre-order Tuesday October 7 via iTunes, is not actually called the ‘Blue Album’ according to JMSN. “The title of the album is actually ‘JMSN’ — it is self-titled because I feel like it’s me finding out even further who I am and diving into that. Not based on a circumstance but rather based on me and how I feel about everything in my life.”
On top of the announcement, JMSN premiered his first single off his forthcoming album — “Street Sweeper” showcases JMSN’s signature sound: a supernatural, R&B-inspired, hippie noise. With a narrative for all of his ballads, JMSN sings about ‘Street Sweeper’ being a killer, a naïve one, with an attitude who happens to possess admirable traits. “Street Sweeper is about a person that I observe from an outside perspective; almost as if I don't know the person, but in reality I do. I try to figure out what draws me to this person so much. I point out flaws and other things I see in them but still always come back to that fact that I love whatever it is they have.” JMSN was at a bar when he observed a particular female who worked there. “I went to the studio [...] I was mumbling something.” 15 minutes into his studio session, the song was born.
Along with the release of his first single, JMSN promised us a music video in the near future for Street Sweeper. “It's a very simple video because I didn't want to take away from the song.”
