CELEBRATORY 23 | American Girl // new audio mix, old video youtube premiere set

Forwarding to American Girl.

Covers albums are usually a chance for a singer to let their hair down a little, a creative break while they wait for new ideas to come along.

Trust Jean Koning to do it differently. The concept behind LINGO: LIFE LEGEND LOST is that all the songs were written by musicians who we've lost between January 2016 and December 2017, all the songs were written during some political or social turmoil, all songs are considered classics, however have very little connection with the current teenagers, wandering aimlessly the planet, facing doubt, racism, and a false sense of connection. All these songs are now reinterpreted by one of the most original musicians around.

With that in our conscious minds, compilation albums are also a step back. In order to investigate where the artist has been and to figure out how they got from A to B, artistically, in the first place.

With BEINONI, the upcoming compilation album, being released April 22nd, #JK revisits the songs of his studio-albums, but offers some retakes on the songs; alternative mixes, and edits.

AMERICAN GIRL is one of those “alternative mix” songs.

The alternative audio is put under the old official video, and premiers on YouTube April 1st.
