Tobias Jesso Jr., the Vancouver singer-songwriter whose homespun piano ballad “True Love” was one of our favorite songs in a while, has signed to True Panther. The Matador subsidiary will release Jesso’s JR White-produced album eventually, but first up is a limited-run singles series that gets subscribers five of Jesso’s home demos for $5 total. That’s just $1 per record, which is a fucking steal with a songwriter like Jesso. Only 300 copies are available, and you can sign up here.
While you wait for the first record to arrive — allegedly “Bad Words” is already in the mail for those who signed up early — watch Jesso’s Takeaway Show, which features performances of the previously unreleased “Without You” and last year’s “Just A Dream.” As always, it’s presented by La Blogothèque. Stream it below.
