Inspired by bands like Nirvana, Interpol and Smashing Pumpkins, Paris Jackson recently shared the studio version of her grungy new single “Bandaid” via Republic Records.
Jackson debuted “Bandaid” last fall with a stripped-back, live acoustic performance for Spin.
“This is the type of music I used to dream of making myself when I was 14, discovering Nirvana and Pixies for the first time,” Jackson said. “Lyrically, it’s the most raw and vulnerable I’ve ever been in any of my songs. It’s the first track I’ve truly let loose and yelled on in the studio, which you can hear in the third chorus, and I feel like that’s why it had to be the title track for my next record.”
“I’m grateful to have also started producing, and Simon Oscroft has been the perfect partner to do that with after having learned everything I know from Andy and Rob in the studio previously,” added the daughter of late music sensation Michael Jackson. “I’m also deeply honored by my good friend Anthony Salazar who, when I said, ‘hit those drums harder than Tommy Lee on wild side,’ did just that. I hope there are people out there that get from it what I got from albums like ‘I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning’ by Bright Eyes, a record that truly made me feel heard and understood from the inside out.”
Jackson is currently on a North American tour in support of the alternative rock band The Silversun Pickups.
