This has been a big week for singer/songwriter Jay Brannan. First off, Jay released his first studio album in over two years, 'Always, Then, & Now'. I am still giving it a listen, and will have my thoughts about it to you soon. But Until that happens, I thought I would share another exciting part of the week, when Jay released the music video for the first single, "Square One". The song is classic Brannan, taking a smart and hard look at life as we know it, with sparse instrumentation that allows Jay's voice to truly shine. It also has his trademark self-deprecating eye, but there is also a new lightness, and maybe even a brightness from Jay. I have to admit, seeing a smile or two in the music video was a wonderful new image I could grow to love. Speak of love, I do really enjoy this song, and the music video enhances that feeling. The song will go into my July playlist, and I can't wait to hear it again. This is Jay Brannan with "Square One".
"Square One" can be found on Jay's latest release, 'Always, Then , & Now'. The album can be purchased from iTunes and Amazon. You can purchase autographed copies of the album, as well as other 'bundled' goodies at Jay's online Store. To learn more about Jay Brannan, visit his official website.
