Jake Shears Shares New Track Sad Song Backwards

Monday, 16 July 2018 Written by Huw Baines

Jake Shears has released a new song.

Sad Song Backwards features on the Scissor Sisters vocalist’s self-titled debut solo LP, which is out on August 10. Discussing it, he said:

"This is simultaneously one of the most upbeat and one of the darkest songs I’ve ever written. It’s about someone going through a very rough patch to say the least. I read somewhere that if you’re really sad, to just walk around smiling really big, and it will release some kind of endorphin to make you feel better. But then you end up looking like a total psycho. This song is basically the equivalent."

Shears will follow up the album's arrival with a headline UK tour in August and several festival sets.

Jake Shears Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows:

Wed August 15 2018 - LONDON Scala
Thu August 16 2018 - BRIGHTON Concorde 2
Sun August 19 2018 - SHEFFIELD Leadmill
Tue August 21 2018 - LIVERPOOL Arts Club
Wed August 22 2018 - GLASGOW Glasgow Garage

Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell! (Album Review)
Thu 05 Sep 2019
When Lana Del Rey’s Video Games attained viral status in 2011, it felt entirely plausible that her success would be a flash in the pan. Many critics (often male) derided her as a contrived, inauthentic pop star whose cinematic melancholia could not translate to long term appeal. Eight years and four albums later, they’ve been proven wrong about her longevity, and yet Del Rey’s multi-textured inauthenticity has flourished, and become a kind of defining brand. Sometimes you can be wrong and right at the same time.
