BabyJake returns with his long-awaited third LP, Aren’t We Ever Gonna Be More Than Friends?, out now via all DSPs, along with a music video to support the title track.
In celebration of the record’s release and following a string of recent singles — including a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Beast Of Burden,” “We Got To Get Together To Be Free,” “Gambler’s Prayer,” and “Cry Cry Cry” — BabyJake additionally shares a music video for the record’s final single and title track, “Aren’t We Ever Gonna Be More Than Friends?”
Speaking on his brand new record, BabyJake wrote the following:
“I wrote some of the songs the day before we recorded and I wrote others 3 years ago. At the end of the day, I picked the ones I was keen on in the moment and let them rip. We recorded the album with a full live band and tracked the drums, bass, guitar, and vocals all at the same time. We ran the entire album through tape as well. It took about 6 months to record, master, and get it completely done. This is my first independent album since 2016. This is my first Rock & Roll album. This is my first album I have been a main producer on. This is my first album I can perform from start to finish with an acoustic guitar. I want it to be best rock album of the year.”
