Jordan Lindley Shares New Song “Bummed”
- Nashville-based singer-songwriter Jordan Lindley released a new song “Bummed” on May 1st.
The track follows up his debut EP “Look Back” released last November.
It was written by Jordan Lindley and produced by Austin Bianco. The song reminds us of '60s folk like Bob Dylan.
“It’s a love song that walks us through the actions we take when we miss someone, but never fully articulate,” Jordan Lindley said of the song. “I wrote ‘Bummed’ on a summer afternoon, in which I realized that I was falling for someone that lived hundreds of miles away. I didn’t know where exactly all of the words were coming from, I just knew that I wanted to, sort of, list out the things about this person that I missed and admired. To me, the song shows a sense of happiness, loss, wonder, and hope — and that’s exactly what I was feeling at the time.”
- Also, he posted an open letter to thread.
“It feels like such a weird time for music right now. We can’t go see our favorite artists, or collaborate with our favorite people in person. But on the opposite end of that, I think that now is probably one of the most fulfilling and important times to release music. It’s one of the few things that can bring us together when we can’t physically be with one another.
There have definitely been some struggles during this time. Some days it’s hard to stay motivated, and some days it feels like you’re carrying all the doubt in the world. But the cool thing about those times is that we can be reminded of why we create in the first place. It’s so easy to get caught up in the routine of writing, recording, releasing, playing — rinse and repeat. But it’s times like these that remind us that we create because we genuinely love to do so.
My hope is that “Bummed” gives people a break right now. For me, it’s light weight. It has a happiness and hopefulness to it that still makes me smile. Whether you’re missing a person or a place or some feeling, I hope it reminds people that it’s still out there. All of this quarantine stuff is temporary, and what we’re longing for is still out there.”
