LA-based artist John Rossiter, known as Young Jesus, has released two new tracks, ‘Am I the Only One’ and ‘Remember Driving,’ as a final preview of his upcoming album The Fool, out May 24th via Saddle Creek.

‘Am I the Only One’ stands out with its warped groove and deeply personal lyrics, exploring themes of guilt and shame. The track features a distinctive bass line by Alex Lappin and contributions from Alex Babbitt, Shahzad Ismaily, Aaron Roche, and Phil Weinrobe, resulting in a rich, textured sound. Rossiter describes the song as a journey through loneliness and emotional transformation, supported by the improvisational talents of his collaborators.

Rossiter shares:

“The type of groove I love. Strange and thick, created by Alex Lappin on bass/electronics, Alex Babbitt on electronics, Shahzad playing drums, Aaron Roche, and Phil Weinrobe creating the ambient breaks.

“One of my favorite bass lines of all time. Full of melody and wonder and texture but also dancing in a lot of weird, dissonant corners. Lappin really shined on this tune.

“Loneliness, emptiness, shame, guilt. Again, like Rich, a song recorded at Figure 8 that was hard to start, but slowly snapped into place once we all talked in the backyard. Talks about shadows. Demons. A transformation in a day. Very moving to sing this one with the support of such incredible musicians shaping it into what it is. So much improvisation and movement.”

Accompanying the single is also the non-album track entitled ‘Remember Driving.’ Both are out now.
