”Random Sounds”

Yes, at last! On the 27th of April there will be a new release from Sad Jack, the slightly more bombastic song ”Random Sounds” (in which there are of course no random sounds to be heard). Graphic concept for the video is under development and Jack’s so excited to soon be able to share this one with all of you! A bonus track will also be included – a version of one of the most popular Sad Jack songs in its original arrangement. Official emoji for the ”Random Sounds”: 🔀🔊

LUCY (inhale/exhale) released!

The new single is released on all major platforms, already receiving lots of praise. Featuring once again Josefine Wassler on backing vocals. This time it finally seems like Jack’s got lucky. But then again, it might just be in his head …
