Jerry Paper – AKA Lucas Nathan – has shared a new single ‘Just Say Play’.
The track is taken from the forthcoming album ‘Free Time’, out Friday April 15th via Stones Throw Records, and comes alongside a UK and European tour this October.
‘Just Say Play’ features Leland Whitty of BADBADNOTGOOD on the flute, and backing vocals from Jonny Kosmo.
Spekaing about the track, Nathan says: “While Free Time is definitely NOT a concept album, I did spend the whole period while making the record thinking about playfulness, curiosity, and their roles in the nature of creativity. ‘Just Say Play’ is basically the mission statement of the record! Coming out as nonbinary was part of a process of dismantling the compartmentalization in myself, and allowing myself to play freely with my gender queerness is one of many ways free play has become a central part of my worldview. I’m just trying to imbue my life with playfulness and freedom!”
