Jonathan Wilson Shares Video for New Song ‘Marzipan’

    Producer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter Jonathan Wilson has shared a new single, ‘Marzipan’. It comes paired with a music video created entirely using AI technology. Check it out below.

    “With my new single ‘Marzipan’ I wanted to break out of any and all comfort zones I may have lapsed into as a writer, narrator, producer, or player,” Wilson explained in a press release. “I discovered a little-known song called ‘Warm Rumours’ from the early 70’s that was playful, risky, experimental, and took no prisoners. I wrote the string and horn arrangements for ‘Marzipan’ myself, and it was a pleasure to have these wonderful players put my melodies on this recording, and into the gentle listener’s ears. I wanted a Walker Brothers’ ‘The Electrician’ string moment at some point in my life, that degree of beauty, and I think this gets me close.”

    He added: “The song chronicles some of my life autobiographically when I lived in NYC in the early 2000’s in my 20s. The feeling of Greenpoint, Brooklyn at that moment. Countering that with a deep dive into Hank Williams, Roy Acuff, and my early fascination with the Harry Smith Anthology during those years. I was obsessed. And of course, jazz, which changed my life forever.”

    Jonathan Wilson’s last album was 2020’s Dixie Blur.
