Bay Area singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Jay Som (aka Melina Duterte) released a fantastic album, Everybody Works, last March via Polyvinyl. (It was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017.) Now she has announced a new 7-inch featuring two songs recorded during the Everybody Works sessions that didn’t make the album: “Pirouette” and “O.K., Meet Me Underwater.” The Pirouette 7-inch is due out January 26 via Polyvinyl. A-side “Pirouette” can be streamed below. Also below is the 7-inch’s cover art and Jay Som’s upcoming tour dates.

Duterte had this to say about the 7-inch in a press release: “Both of these tracks were made during the spring of 2016 - the first demo stages for Everybody Works. They were fun to write and record but felt out of place on the track list during the finalization of the album. These tracks remain close to my heart and I’m really grateful they’re finally out in the world.”
