DOWNLOAD: Jack Penate - Tonight's Today (MP3)

Jack Penate

Singer Jack Peñate hits New York in about a week, playing Bruar Falls on June 3 and (according to Jack's MySpace) Pianos on June 4. You may remember Jack from a couple years ago when he arrived on a wave of hype from London. Despite a couple UK hits, Peñate's 2007 debut, Matinee, got trounced in the press, charged with featherweight lyrics and a tendency to sound like an overly Wham! on Redbull. Well, Jack's back with his follow-up, Everything is New, due out June 22 that sounds like he's been to Brazil (and Ibiza) or at least has been given the Luaka Bop catalog. Which is not a bad thing. He's calmed down (a bit), sauced things up and the album's first single, "Tonight's Today," is pretty damn catchy. MP3 above. And the video, directed by Alma Har'el, is kind of hot (and slightly NSFW). You can watch it, and all tour dates, below...

Does more worldly = less shit?

great stuff, he really likes NYC. Has he been anywhere else in the states?

Not always.

I wish all the best for Jack Penate. I have noticed, from personal experience, that too much enigma in something can really throw a person off. I believe that, at this point in his career, he should try to connect with the audience by being less loud and more provocative in lyrics. He's heading the right way at least.
