Today, Jade Jackson is excited to share “Secret”, a song that came to her in a sudden moment of inspiration while driving in her central California hometown.
“Secret” tells a story of addiction, loss, and the heartbreak that accompanies not just death itself but of a failure to fulfill dreams and to escape the tethers of home. As Jackson’s gorgeous voice belts out the chorus of “All the walls inside me fell down / I don’t want my bones to be buried in this town,” know that the emotion, just like the story, is real.
“That chorus came to my mind first,” she says, “and I started screaming it, like I was channeling the person in that song. A lot of little feelings that hurt me, or that I have suppressed, sometimes pop up when I sing. If you push a buoy down in the water then let go, it shoots up quickly. Sometimes that happens with sadness in my songwriting.”
“Secret” is the second track to be made available on Jackson’s sophomore album Wilderness, set for a June 28 release on ANTI-. On Wilderness, Jackson casts a light more focused on her own life than ever before.
