Today, New Jersey-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer Adam Melchor shares a delicate new take on My Chemical Romance’s early 2000’s classic “i’m not okay.” Melchor revealed the track release yesterday on social media, surprising fans with an intimate acoustic video shot in Minnesota. Listen to “i’m not okay” HERE and watch the acoustic video HERE.
About the unexpected song choice, he explains, “Growing up in New Jersey, My Chemical Romance were on everyone’s speakers and in everyone’s CD players. There’s a MCR song for pretty much any mood you’re in. I covered this because firstly, no one was okay in 2020, and secondly because I was really missing New Jersey and the people who live there. This song became a sort of teleportation device to get me back to the place I used to call home. Also, because this is a pretty heavy electric guitar song, I thought hearing a light fingerpicking acoustic guitar arrangement of it would be fun.”
