Mr Little Jeans Returns With First New Song in Three Years, “Jump To Fall”; Listen Here
November 3, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Norway’s Mr Little Jeans (aka Monica Birkenes) returns today with her highly anticipated new track, “Jump To Fall,” the first new music in three years.
“Jump to Fall” is a song that details Monica’s battle with her inner demons: “I wrote ‘Jump to Fall’ just before getting diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease (an autoimmune disease of the thyroid which affects so much more than just your thyroid). My mind was a mess. I was in rumination mode 24/7 and felt overwhelmed, tired, frazzled, and anxious most days. Shortly after being diagnosed, I remember reading about how the disease can express itself. I was sobbing at the table, realizing everything I had considered as my shortcomings were mostly symptoms and potentially something I could get help for (it turns out I still have shortcomings, unfortunately). It had crept up on me so gradually and been my normal for so long at that point I didn’t know any different. Suddenly falling asleep (literally) in the studio day after day while writing ‘Pocketknife’ made a whole lot of sense to me.”
The return of Mr Little Jeans comes three years in the making and follows the release of “Forgetter,” which saw the LA-based artist earn support from tastemakers like FADER, NYLON, and PAPER. Since then, she’s been in and out of the studio writing and her forthcoming full-length (TBA 2022 via Nettwerk Records).
