Young Jesus Releases New Songs ‘Am I The Only One?’ and ‘Remember Driving’

    John Rossiter has shared two more songs ahead of the release of his new Young Jesus LP The Fool, having already unveiled ‘Brenda & Diane’, ‘Hollywood Ending’, ‘The Weasel’, and ‘Moonlight’. Listen to ‘Am I The Only One?’ and its non-album companion ‘Remember Driving’ below.

    ‘Am I The Only One?’ arrives with a music video directed by Dillon Cullinan. “The type of groove I love,” Rossiter said in a press release. “Strange and thick, created by Alex Lappin on bass/electronics, Alex Babbitt on electronics, Shahzad playing drums, Aaron Roche and Phil Weinrobe creating the ambient breaks.” He continued:

    One of my favorite bass lines of all time. Full of melody and wonder and texture but also dancing in a lot of weird, dissonant corners. Lappin really shined on this tune.

    Loneliness, emptiness, shame, guilt. Again, like Rich, a song recorded at Figure 8 that was hard to start, but slowly snapped into place once we all talked in the backyard. Talks about shadows. Demons. A transformation in a day. Very moving to sing this one with the support of such incredible musicians shaping it into what it is. So much improvisation and movement.

    The Fool comes out May 24 via Saddle Creek. Revisit our inspirations interview with Young Jesus.
