Mr Little Jeans – Better Days

Mr Little Jeans

Norwegian musician Mr Little Jeans will release Better Days on June 3 via Nettwerk–an album that is a  testament  to  Birkenes’  strength  as  a  songwriter  and  vocalist  and  dives  into  undoing  the  trauma  and  disgrace  that  life heaps upon each of us from a young age. It’s a record about fighting to get through and the sunlight that awaits on the other side. The definitive document by a pop  artist whose absence  has  been sorely felt, it’s a testament, an album defined by virtuosity and spirit.

Out today, the stunning “Better with You” is a piece of gossamer ambient-R&B, powered by delicate harmonies that point to the song’s sweetness. Written about the exhilarating early stages of a relationship, it speaks to Birkenes’ symbiosis with her co-writers, Drew McFadden and Leon Jean-Marie. “I’m at my most creative and honest when I’m writing with people I know and trust,” Birkenes recalls. “It also helps if I can boss them around and be vocal about what I want, which is what I did most days.” Produced by a team of talent including longtime collaborators McFadden and Jean-Marie, alongside Tim Anderson(Banks, Halsey) and Aron Forbes (Billie Eilish, King Princess, Olivia Rodrigo),the album is altogether a more dynamic, more hair-raising record, complete with shuddering bass synth, ice-cold trap drums, and a surprising, enveloping sense of space.
