Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and mental health advocate Jewel celebrates the 20th anniversary of her platinum-selling fourth studio album This Way with a radiant new remix of the hit single “Standing Still.”
“Standing Still” broke the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US upon its original release, while receiving worldwide acclaim reaching the top 40 in Australia, the Netherlands, and New Zealand. At the time, Jewel shared with Rolling Stone, “I wrote [the song] about the supposed irony of how much I move and travel and how I’m in constant motion and how that constant motion can make your love life stand still, and also really your emotional life.”
The “Standing Still (Pure Shores Remix)” has a refreshing dancefloor-ready tone that gives light to the short days of the current season. The reimagined composition is a glowing reminder that Jewel’s versatile vocals are accustomed for any musical setting, whether it be folk, acoustic, pop, EDM or otherwise.
Adding to Jewel’s collection of remixes from earlier this year, “Standing Still (Pure Shores Remix)” follows the Pride month remixes of “Intuition” and “Stand” with Initial Talk and Bright Light Bright Light. Jewel shared the new music to honor the LGBTQ community, saying on social media, “My LGBTQ friends & family have enriched my life in innumerable ways – the humor, love & ferocity of spirit inspire me every day.”
