John Jenkins - I Don't Want To Be That Guy Anymore

John Jenkins

I Don’t Want to Be That Guy Anymore’ is the third release of the year by John Jenkins, in follow-up to his critically acclaimed album ‘Tuebrook’, released in July 2023, and the March and April 2024 standalone tracks ‘The Reason’ and ‘Bury Myself in the Sand’.

I Don’t Want to Be That Guy Anymore’ is the third release of the year by John Jenkins, in follow-up to his critically acclaimed album ‘Tuebrook’, released in July 2023, and the March and April 2024 standalone tracks ‘The Reason’ and ‘Bury Myself in the Sand’.

It is the third track of six being released monthly that, thematically, wouldn’t fit on the ‘Tuebrook’ album. There are a lot of songs about self-hate or self-loathing (Johnny Cash – Hurt, Townes Van Zandt – Rake, Linkin Park – Numb, just to name three), songs about the realisation of doing something wrong and recognising it. Maybe hoping for salvation or forgiveness. My song ‘A Wiser Man than Me’ explored this previously and ‘I Don’t Want to Be That Guy Anymore’ is another. I recently realised I was dyslexic and probably neurodiverse and have spent a long time recently going over moments in my past and trying to connect the dots. This song came from those soul-searching moments. I wanted a little bit of a rough indie guitar sound after the acoustic songs I’d been releasing, and Jon Lawton as always steps up to the plate. I even got him to add a backward guitar solo to match the black thoughts I had been dipping into. To be released on May 3rd, 2024, ‘I Don’t Want to Be That Guy Anymore’ is co-produced by John Jenkins and Jon Lawton (Sami Yusuf, Ian Prowse, Only Child) and mastered by Pete Maher (The Rolling Stones, U2, Patti Smith).

This will be available from the usual digital retailers.

‘Bury Myself in the Sand’ is the second release of the year by John Jenkins, in follow-up to his critically acclaimed album ‘Tuebrook’, released in July 2023, and the March 2024 standalone track ‘The Reason’.
It is the second track of six that will be released monthly that, thematically, wouldn’t fit on the ‘Tuebrook’ album. ‘Bury Myself in the Sand’ is a song about ‘having one of those days’ when you feel that the whole world is conspiring against you, nothing is going right, and you just want to disappear from people and places. Wonderful musical contributions from Chris Howard (Piano), Tony Peers (Horns) and Jon Lawton (guitar/bass and drum programming) makes the track cross into a different musical feel to John’s notable Americana writing and it has an uplifting jazzy touch despite the despairing subject matter. To be released on April 5th 2024, ‘Bury Myself in the Sand’ is co-produced by John Jenkins and Jon Lawton (Sami Yusuf, Ian Prowse, Only Child) and mastered by Pete Maher (The Rolling Stones, U2, Patti Smith).

This will be available from the usual digital retailers.

‘The Reason’ is the first release and new single by John Jenkins following his critically acclaimed album Tuebrook that was released in July 2023. Pitched between Richard Hawley and Roy Orbison in delivery, It is the first track of six that will be released monthly that, thematically, wouldn’t’t fit on the Tuebrook album. You would be forgiven if you listened to ‘The Reason’ and thought it’s a song about love between two couples in a relationship, but it digs deeper than that and you will find it captures the unconditional bond and love of a son towards his mother within the emotional lyrics and music.
