Last month, Jack Steadman became the latest Bombay Bicycle Clubber to go solo, unveiling new project Mr Jukes with debut single ‘Angels/Your Love’ from debut album ‘God First’.
Today, he’s followed up the BJ The Chicago Kid-featuring cut with new single ‘Tears’. The new track features vocals from rising Atlanta-based star Alexandria.
Talking about the new project in a press release, Steadman says: “I loved the challenge of writing songs for Bombay Bicycle Club, but as a naturally restless person, after the last album my mind wandered to ideas I couldn’t imagine doing within the band. On Mr Jukes I have the freedom to go right to the end of any idea I might have.”
‘God First’ is released on 14th July via Island Records. Listen to ‘Tears’ below.
