The Reason’ is the first release and new single by John Jenkins following his critically acclaimed album Tuebrook that was released in July 2023.
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.
To be released on March 8th, 2024, which coincidentally would have been John’s mother’s birthday and is a few days before ‘Mother’s Day’.
‘The Reason’ 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

You are the reason I exist
You are the reason I live
Here to catch me if I fall
And guide me if I should stall
And you’ll hold my soul
For longer than anyone else can do
Each day of my life
I’ll see myself through you
You’re the blood that rushes to my heart
The Rainbow’s end – the sky – the stars
And if sadness should overcome me
You’ll do everything to set me free
And I look at you
In a way no-one else can do
Each day of my life
I know you’ll love me too
