With a Las Vegas late night velvet lounge delivery replete with sweeping strings and a Burt Bacharach sixties-fringed tone, the new song from Wade Jackson is dramatic, theatrical and bold.
The bold statuesque delivery carries lyrics that are yearning and romantic, yet tempered with a sobering dose of self-deprecating reality:
Sweetheart, I woke up from a daydream
To find you
Sweetheart, only white wine and romance
For you and I
But how could someone so lovely
Fall for the same old line?
It’s a bold, cinematic and luscious sound that recalls elements of Bowie and Spiritualized – dreamy and hypnotising:
‘The Sweetheart is out everywhere today through Broken Stone Records/Remote Control Records and available on all streaming services through the link above and here. For every share tagging Jackson, Jackson and Broken Stone Records will generously donate $1.00 to the Cancer Council Australia.
Jackson is a bit of a creative polymath – he has a background in music theatre and screen writing and his film ‘Waiting – The Van Duren Story’ is currently streaming on BINGE and FOXTEL in Australian, SkyARTS in NZ and AMAZON PRIME, North America.
