Michigander — the the sonic alter ego of Michigan native Jason Singer — has just announced that his new EP, titled It Will Never Be the Same, will be released on October 7th via C3 Records. It Will Never be the Same is available for pre-order here.
It Will Never Be the Same marks the fourth EP from Michigander, featuring current alternative radio single “Stay Out of It,” as well as “In My Head” with Manchester Orchestra. In addition, he is releasing a brand new single titled “The Other Way” today, which can be found below.
“I’m beyond excited to announce my fourth EP, It Will Never Be The Same,” shares Singer. “I wrote these songs about the feelings I’ve had over the last two years. Socially, politically, and economically, things are different, and on a more personal level, my life will never be what it was. I got married, I moved to a new city and state, and I turned 30. I think there are two ways to look at seasons of change like these. You can either be afraid, which usually results in hostility and frustration, or you can accept the situation for what it is and adapt and grow. Either option is very hard, but I like to think I’ve chosen the latter.”
“This song was the first song I wrote for the new EP,” Michigander comments about “The Other Way.” “I was trying to capture the notion that if I could go back, I would’ve done things differently. We recorded this song live in a room together at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, and I love that you can hear the excitement in the room on this recording.”
In support of the new EP, Michigander will embark on a 20-date fall headline tour featuring special guest Abby Holliday. The It Will Never Be The Same Tour launches October 13th ahead of the band’s performance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. The cross-country trek includes stops in Los Angeles (October 21), Chicago (November 2), and New York City (November 4), before wrapping November 12th in Detroit. Tickets are on sale now. Ahead of the headlining outing, Singer and his bandmates will support Wilderado on a U.S. tour and perform at Firefly Music Festival.
