Jacob Whitesides Releases New Single – “Lovesick” – Today Via All Digital Retailers‏

Acclaimed  singer/songwriter Jacob Whitesides – whose independent spirit and approach to his musical career has captured the attention of critics and industry tastemakers as well as millions of fans around the world – releases his eagerly anticipated new single, “Lovesick,” today via all participating digital retailers. The single is the first to be released from the 18-year-old’s full-length debut album, which is due in late summer.

“Every day that I walked into the studio was another creative adventure and Lovesick was just like that. The song was started before I got in the room and it was like joining a party with the “yeah, yeah, yeahs” and the “no, no, nos” the band just crushed it and the vibe spoke to my Tennessee sensibilities.  The lyric is really about getting caught up with love and maybe looking at too many options only to figure out that you gotta do it one relationship at a time or you will lose the ones that matter. The co-writers and musicians were stellar and the vibe is fresh. I know that the song is a great peek at the rest of the album and all of the songs represent a part of me as I learn about myself at 18.”

A video for “Lovesick” premieres today on Jacob’s social media pages. (See links below.) The clip features Jacob starring alongside other young social media talent Wellington Boyce, Alex Aiono, Andrea Russett, and features a brief cameo from Grammy-winner Michael Bolton (whose youtube-bombing presence has exploded since the success of his Andy Samberg led Lonely Island clip).
