Listen To Jack's Mannequin's Final Song

Posted by - 09:18 PM on 09/25/12
You can stream/download Jack's Mannequin's last song "Wrecking Ball Heart" in the replies.
From AndrewI have been well aware, throughout my career, how rare it is for a musician to have such a genuine connection with the people who support them. The reaction to the final JM shows have certainly crystalized those realizations. There is little I could do to express my gratitude for this, but if anything, this is a small token. Late one night in Santa Monica I played my friend and long time producer, Jim Wirt, a demo of a song I wrote a few years back. No session was scheduled, but after a couple beers and some laughs we pulled out some microphones and cut it. The next day Jay and Bobby came through and did what they do best; selflessly and skillfully served the song. We weren't making an album, and like the early days there was no label in place to release it. Just friends in a space playing music. I hope you enjoy it.

I love it. Andrew has yet to write a song that I don't enjoy, so I know I'll like his solo stuff. It's just that Jack's has a special place in my heart and I'll miss them so much.

I love it. He sounds so mature. I hope his solo material has the same kind of sound.

I admire him for giving this away because this is a fucking jam. I would gladly pay him for this song. If this is his "solo sound," (more Petty-ish) then I am all in.

Did you listen to People and Things or Glass Passenger? His whinyness ended a long time ago. You can notice it a lot in People and Things.

He's funneling Tom Petty more and more with each passing song... and I'm ok with that.

the b-sides from People and Things (i.e. the In Transit and Glass Passenger demos) were some of his best releases because he still had that 'whine'
