The first time Jay tried to write a song about his time in America it ended up being “too sappy” so he scrapped it and wrote “Fuck You Nashville” instead. His second attempt, “The Great American Novel” manages to find some ground in between those two extremes. “It’s my love letter to America,” Jay explains.
Check out his video for the single, taken off his upcoming album “Rolling Up the Hill” which is out December 1st on Xtra Mile Recordings.
And if you live in America be sure to catch Jay as he tours the US with Skinny Lister and Frank Turner.
