Vancouver artist JP Maurice has shared a free stream of ‘Rocket’ from his forthcoming album Boys, out on May 18.
It’s the follow-up to his 2017 EP Girls. Maurice started work on the album four years ago at The Trailer, a small studio in Toronto.
“Many of the songs were reworked or even scrapped for newer, stronger, or more appropriate tunes,” he said in an e-mail. “And this all culminated in recording sessions in Vancouver in the Summer of 2016 with producer/mixer Russell Broom at Blue Light Studio, which I luckily had become a partner in after successfully taking home 2nd place in the final edition of The Peak Performance Project. 15+ songs were recorded and it was decided to break the album up into 2 parts which became the Girls EP and Boys LP.”
Maurice released Girls after his 2013 debut The Arborist, streaming for free via his Bandcamp;
The track ‘Go’ can be found on both Girls and Boys. Check out the video for the track;
