Today, multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer, Jeremy Zucker, debuts the powerful short film for his single, “all the kids are depressed”—watch and share here. Directed by filmmaker Drew Kirsch (Felix Jaehn, blackbear, Louis the Child, Quinn XCII), the video premieres today on Buzzfeed.
Of the video, Zucker says, “For people watching this video, I hope that they feel comfort. That they’re not alone. That it’s important to talk about mental illness. That confronting the way they’re feeling and exchanging experiences can make things better, even if it’s just for a moment.”
“all the kids are depressed” is taken from Zucker’s latest EP, glisten, out now. The EP also features his single, “better off” with rising artist Chelsea Cutler. See the full tracklist below.
Before entrancing listeners across the world, 21-year-old singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker had been quietly carving out his distinct sound from a bedroom in suburban New Jersey. A self-described “social introvert,” Zucker cites Jon Bellion, blackbear, EDEN, Bon Iver and Wet among his strongest influences. In the summer of 2015, Zucker released his first official EP titled Beach Island. The project saw a small amount of success, and from there Zucker steadily began to build a dedicated fan base.
Later that year, he released a stream of singles that would eventually be packaged together as an EP titled Breathe. The project’s breakout single “Bout It” quickly garnered millions of streams as it organically spread across Soundcloud and Spotify, drawing the attention of curators and fans across the world. In 2016, Zucker released his third EP, Motions, which features “Heavy,” a song that was later remixed by the recording artist blackbear who reached out to Jeremy after stumbling across his music on Soundcloud. The remix, “Make Daddy Proud,” was released on blackbear’s latest LP Digital Druglord. In 2017, Zucker was signed with Republic Records and released his third EP, idle. The EP features his breakout hit, “talk is overrated” (feat. blackbear), which has over 15 million Spotify streams to date. Further music is set for release this spring.
