Jake Scott releases beautiful new track Come Close and announces debut album Lavender which will be released in October via Elektra Records.
“Come Close is about the crucial nature of vulnerability in a relationship. It’s the antidote for apathy. It’s the glue that holds everything together. It’s also terrifying. Real vulnerability is so, so difficult for me. This song is about me realising I have to let my wife see every single part of me – the good, the bad and the ugly…otherwise we’ll never come close to what we could be.” says Jake about his beauortful new single Come Close.
Come Close is a great introduction as to whats to come with Lavender, the song is built around sparse, yet evocative piano. As the momentum picks up, a delicate guitar melody practically melts into the embrace of a warm beat. Meanwhile, he delivers a message straight-from-the-heart in plainspoken and poignant fashion. During the hummable hook, he promises, “I love you, and I mean it, so could you come close?”
Jake assembled much of Lavender, his upcomig debut album in his home studio, co-writing alongside various trusted collaborators and handling production on the majority of the tracks himself. Now, the record channels blissful nostalgia, tender memories, and all kinds of truths for Jake. For as much as he continued to define his sound on Lavender, he also got a little closer to understanding who he is.
He initially paved the way for the album with Married Young and Good Day, generating millions of streams and building up buzz. He delivered a show stopping performance of Married Young on KTLA, while he graced the stage of TODAY with Good Day, showing the world just who Jake Scott is!
