GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist from Toronto, JP SAXE, shares his new single, “Like That” via Arista Records today. This is the latest track off Saxe’s highly anticipated debut album, Dangerous Levels of Introspection, announced earlier this week, which will be available on June 25th, 2021.
The album will include GRAMMY® Award-nominated track for Song of the Year, “If The World Was Ending” ft. Julia Michaels, as well as “A Little Bit Yours” and “Line By Line” with Maren Morris, among other special guests.
Of “Like That,” Saxe says: “I learned love in all kinds of new ways over the last year. Terrifying ways for the most part but good terrifying. I didn’t realize it when Julia [Michaels] and I wrote ‘Like That,’ but I think it’s unintentionally very connected to the first song we ever wrote, ‘If The World Was Ending.’ That song is about who you would want to be with if everything went to shit. This song is about who was with you when everything did go to shit.”
Saxe has been nominated for two iHeart Radio Awards, including Best New Pop Artist, airing on May 27th on FOX, as well as five JUNO Awards airing in Canada on June 6th, 2021. Saxe will promote the album via a livestreamed concert with Los Angeles-based venue, The Wiltern, on May 14th, 2021. He will announce details on his forthcoming fall tour plans later this month.
