BabyJake Releases Debut Album ‘The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now’

Today, singer, songwriter, and producer BabyJake drops his debut album, The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now. The 11-track, genre-blurring album features BabyJake’s new single, “My Anxiety,” which is accompanied by the official video out now.

On The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now, the Florida-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and producer promises he’s “bringing back rock ‘n’ roll”. However, this isn’t your parents’ rock ‘n’ roll, it’s got all of the style, swagger, and spirit of the seventies, but it’s lit up by a fresh fire. The album was recorded over the past year and a half in Los Angeles, and BabyJake co-wrote and co-produced the songs with various collaborators, including Bipolar Sunshine, Lizzy McAlpine, and Linda Perry, to name a few. The new single “My Anxiety” glides along on clean guitar, warm keys, and an anxious beat as his grizzled intonation carries a hauntingly hypnotic hook, “I want to get high, do it quietly, do it privately…I don’t wanna die. I’ve got a lot on my mind.”

On the The Sun Wakes Up Earlier Now, BabyJake says, “For me, the album represents crossing into a world of not giving a fuck what anybody thinks and showing I’m a human being. I’m going to dress how I want to dress, act how I want to act, and make what I want to make. If it works, great. Either way, I’m going to keep trucking along.”

To celebrate the album release, BabyJake will perform his first-ever headlining shows this month in New York at Baby’s All Right on September 9th and Los Angeles at Moroccan Lounge on September 15th. Not to mention, he will also perform at select festivals this fall, including Napa Valley’s BottleRock today and Tampa’s Gasparilla on October 1st.
