South Wales songwriter/wordsmith Jack Jones released a new single “Who Let The Bass Pump Through The Floor” through the Strap Originals label last Friday (12th July). The second track to be lifted from Jack’s much anticipated self-titled debut solo album which comes out on Friday September 20th. “Who Let The Bass Pump Through The Floor” is a dancefloor monster of which Jack himself says: “When we first started drinking as young kids, we couldn’t get into pubs or anything, so we used to always have house parties… It was just an excuse to find someone’s flat and destroy it. The song’s the idea of people arriving from the street, and coming in, each with their own back-story. It’s a bit of a banger!”

The video was shot over Glastonbury weekend by Barnaby Fairley, who also directed the video for previous single “Breathe”. Jack performed three times at Glastonbury, (twice solo and once with his band Trampolene), but incredibly didn’t bump into either Dave Grohl or Tom Cruise.

His debut album Jack Jones will be available on vinyl in multiple colour formats, CD and digital download and was co-written, produced and mixed by Adam French. Also available will be Jack Jones’ new book ‘Tour Diaries Volume 1’ featuring Jack’s time with Trampolene, The Libertines and Peter Doherty & The Puta Madres.. Pre-order the album and book HERE

For this album, Jones has put away his guitar and embraced a fresh and highly contemporary sound in which to couch his hard-hitting state of the nation poems of existential fear and loathing. His lyrics tackle many of today’s burning issues: mental health, drug addiction, mortality, and the tortuous demands of technology. There’s also joy and hope in there. The new direction arose out of an introduction to Mancunian artist/producer/songwriter/laptop warrior Adam French. For Jones, French’s way of composing and recording was like being teleported into a parallel dimension.
