Detroit’s Flint Eastwood (Jax Anderson) has released her hotly-anticipated Broke Royalty EP here via Neon Gold Records (Christine And The Queens, Charli XCX) and headlines a hometown release show at Detroit’s historic Fisher Building, kicking off a US tour that includes Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, Electric Forest and Lollapalooza this spring + summer (tour dates below).
The EP is highlighted by lead single, “Rewind”, featuring fellow Detroit-native and electronic heavyweight GRiZ. Anderson elaborates: “Rewind is about the innocence of youth. When you’re young, like little kid young, you have such an honest and untainted perspective on life. It’s a beautiful thing. It’s a time when love is just love, no labels or expectations, and all you care about is having fun and living life to the fullest.
I originally wrote this track as a hail mary for GRiZ’s last record. He hit me up a few days before they were starting to mix “Good Will Prevail” about an instrumental he really wanted on the record, but it needed a vocalist. I was touring at the time and pretty much the only time I could finish it was way early in the morning the day before it was due. I got in the studio and knocked it out in about 2 hours with my collaborator, SYBLYNG. Grant loved it, but it ultimately didn’t fit the vibe of his record. A few months later I got a text from Grant saying I should release it on my new EP, and I was in.”
Additionally, the EP finds production support from MUTEMATH’s Paul Meany, as well as a track with principal BØRNS collaborator Tommy English.
Jax has always been carving out her own path. In 2015, she helped co-found Assemble Sound, a collaboration studio space for Detroit musicians to meet, find resources, and ultimately create good art. They raised funds, purchased a church from the 1870’s, and renovated it as a community. This is the space where Flint Eastwood writes and records her music, the space that sparked the idea for Broke Royalty.
