Jay Som Announces Debut Album ‘Everybody Works’; Shares New Track “The Bus Song”
Posted 01/12/2017

We're incredibly pleased to announce Jay Som's official debut album, Everybody Works, out March 10th!

Head on over to NPR or below to hear the "The Bus Song."

"Melina Duterte may be at the beginning of what looks like a breakthrough year, but with promising songs like 'The Bus Song,' Jay Som already feels fully formed." - NPR

Duterte is as DIY as ever—writing, recording, playing, and producing every sound beyond a few backing vocals—but she takes us places we never could have imagined, wedding lo-fi rock to hi-fi home orchestration, and weaving evocative autobiographical poetry into energetic punk, electrified folk, and dreamy alt-funk.

And while Duterte's early stuff found her bucking against life's lows, Everybody Works is about turning that angst into fuel for forging ahead. "Last time I was angry at the world," she says. "This is a note to myself: everybody's trying their best on their own set of problems and goals. We're all working for something."

Pre-orders are available on Early Bird Edition 180-Gram Orange/Cyan Starburst vinyl, 180-Gram Orange vinyl, CD, Tape, and digitally right now in our E-Store!

Jay Som will be hitting the road with The Courtney's this spring! View dates and purchase tickets here.
