Rising Australian singer-songwriter Jack Botts has returned with his most infectious single to date with the release of 18th Floor.
With his flair for flowing lyricism and memorable melodies on display more than ever, the single finds Botts digesting the highs and hurdles of a long distance relationship at the best of times, let alone during COVID.
Written and recorded while visiting his partner in Vancouver earlier this year, 18th Floor is marked by vivid imagery of the extended time they had together as travel restrictions began to be enforced. With the inevitable flight home looming, the track emerged as a reminder that no matter how much time or distance might be between us and our loved ones, we’ll be OK.
“Trying to shine some light on a sticky situation, 18th Floor focuses on the exciting ‘things to come’ once reunited from being distant. Connecting again is definite. When, is uncertain,” Botts adds.
“18th Floor brings a little bit of hope to anyone doing it tough through distance with the ones you love. It reminisces on the good times that have been had, and the even better times to come.”
From beginnings busking in Byron, to countless sold out headline shows and support slots alongside the likes of Tash Sultana, John Floreani and The Pierce Brothers, Jack Botts has arguably become one of the Australia’s fastest rising songwriters under the radar. Built on an authentic and no-frills approach to life and music, the twenty two year-old has swiftly built a fanbase spanning over 150K Monthly Spotify listeners and 8 Million catalogue streams in just a few short years.
Jack Botts will celebrate the release of 18th Floor with new dates throughout November. More details and tickets below.
18th Floor is independently released by Jack Botts and distributed via UNIFIED Music Group.
