NEW RELEASE! Please Rewind/Atlantic Records recording artist Jaymes Young officially releases his eagerly awaited debut album “FEEL SOMETHING” which is available now at all music retailers and streaming services. Download/Stream HERE.
“FEEL SOMETHING” features streaming hits “I’ll Be Good” and “We Won’t” (feat. Phoebe Ryan).” Previously included on 2014’s “HABITS OF MY HEART” EP, “I’ll Be Good” is Jaymes’ biggest single thus far with over 30 million streams and a companion video which is approaching nearly 20 million views. Stereogum has hailed the track and video as both a “gorgeous sadcore single” and “an equally heart-wrenching video…it’s a scorching, introspective clip, with muted colors and surreal shots of fish swimming in IV bags.” “We Won’t” reached #1 on Hype Machine, boasts over 30 million streams worldwide, and just last week received a compelling visual to accompany the track which premiered via Blackbook. Watch the video which stars both Jaymes Young and Phoebe Ryan themselves HERE. In the weeks leading up to the release of “FEEL SOMETHING,” Jaymes has received media attention for various exclusive track releases including praise from TIME, Billboard, VICE’s Noisey, NYLON, Idolator, Blackbook, Earmilk and more.
In conjunction with the album release, Jaymes’ first-ever 17-date headlining “Feel Something” tour will kick off in Santa Ana, CA at the Constellation Room, with multiple sold-out shows, including a stop at the famed Troubadour in Los Angeles on July 11th, and a performance at Bowery Ballroom in New York City on July 27th before wrapping up at the Exit/In in Nashville on August 2nd. Jaymes has traveled the road nearly non-stop in recent years, including headline shows and tours alongside London Grammar and F-Stop/Atlantic recording artist Vance Joy.

Jaymes Young will assure you that he’s a “songwriter before a singer and performer.” That wise and self-aware summation cuts to the core of who the Seattle-born and Los Angeles-based musician/poet really is. Spending countless hours holed up in his bedroom carefully piecing together compositions, penning lyrics, and exploring sounds, he creates music that’s steeped in pop palatability, dusky cinematic electronics, and stark, stirring instrumentation.
2013 saw Jaymes independently release the critically acclaimed “DARK STAR” mixtape, gaining praise from Nylon, Pigeons & Planes, VICE’s Noisey and more. Following his signing to Atlantic Records, his “HABITS OF MY HEART” EP spawned viral hits such as the title track and “I’ll Be Good,” which both surpassed 20 million Spotify streams. Supporting the EP, he hit the road with the likes of London Grammar and Vance Joy. And fueled by fan fervor, 2015’s “We Won’t” with Phoebe Ryan caught on like proverbial wildfire, amassing over 30 million Spotify streams and 4 million Soundcloud plays and receiving praise from Billboard, Earmilk, IndieShuffle and more. 2017 brings the arrival of his much-anticipated, full-length debut, “FEEL SOMETHING.”
