JEAN. DROPS EVOCATIVE NEW SINGLE “SEE THROUGH” (FT. CLEVER)
HIS DEBUT RELEASE ON DB.MUSIC / WARNER MUSIC AUSTRALIA
Genre-fusing artist and songwriting visionary Jean. is today thrilled to announce his signing to db.music / Warner Music Australia, alongside the release of his brooding new single “See Through” ft. Clever. The track arrives as Jean.’s first single of 2022, and is the first taste of his upcoming EP due for release later this year.
A brilliant visual songwriter, Jean. captivatingly weaves emotive storytelling and dark, cinematic sounds throughout “See Through”, built around an infectious hook that lingers long after the first listen. With previous releases boasting over 2.5million streams and glowing reviews on triple j Unearthed from the likes of Ebony Boadu, Tommy Faith and Dave Ruby Howe, “See Through” is set to punctuate Jean.’s immense natural talent and ability.
“I wrote this hook in a spurt of inspiration after hearing the guitars that opentilll8 sampled in the intro of the song,” Jean. reveals. “I personally tend to write based on what images come to mind when I hear an instrumental, and for this particular track I saw visuals of the moon, a forest, a storm and wolves in my head. The music reminded me of some kind of hunt, so I knew the lyrics had to match the epicness of the instrumental. For the video, I decided I wanted to put myself in the world that I had imagined when writing the hook and it turned out to be exactly how I imagined. Shoutout to Macsdona on the visuals, he killed it. “
The evocative new single features prominent Alabama rapper Clever, whose co-signs and collaborations include the likes of Post Malone, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Juice WRLD and more. Of their collaboration, Jean. says he already had Clever in mind when writing the song’s hook:
“My friend Yaz showed me Clever’s music a couple of months prior and I thought his tone and melodies were incredibly unique. Whilst over in America, I stayed with his manager however we never got a chance to meet each other. 12 months later we finally made contact after his manager showed him the track. He loved it and wanted to feature on it. He sent his verse and I wrote my verse after hearing his approach to the song. That’s how the song came about.”
