Elektra recording artist Christina Perri has today released “jar of hearts (10th anniversary acoustic).” The special re-imagining of her 2010 breakout hit single is available at all DSPs and streaming services now.
On June 30, 2010, the original “Jar of Hearts” was featured in a choreographed dance routine on the popular, national television show “So You Think You Can Dance.” At the time, Perri was still a struggling, unsigned musician working as a waitress in Hollywood at the time, but, after that night, her life would be forever be changed. Within weeks, she had signed a major record label deal and officially re-released “Jar of Hearts,” which is now RIAA certified 5x-Platinum with more than 720 million streams globally, and kicked off a career highlighted by multi-platinum success, countless television appearances, and sold out shows around the world. To celebrate, Perri posted a companion visual for “jar of hearts (10th anniversary acoustic)” this past Tuesday, ten years to the day when it all started for her. Watch HERE.
Perri shared this note with her fans: “happy 10 year anniversary to my baby jar of hearts!!! what a wild ride it has been. in honor of this special day, here is an acoustic version of the song that i recorded at home. i’m so grateful for all the love and support i have received from day one ! most special thanks to my team of fairy godmothers on this fateful day: keltie knight, stacey tookey, tom gates, ryan chisholm, philly brenthall, steven schillaci, jordan davidoff, kathryn mccormick, and billy bell. without all of you i wouldn’t be here. i was catapulted into the stars on that day and i have never come down since! thank you for this life! i wonder what the next decade will bring 💕”
