Jeremy Zucker

“Icy, minimal but tuneful electronic pop” – The New York Times

“glisten reflects Zucker’s dedication to creating music that echoes what’s happening during his life at a given moment.” – Billboard

[Of “comethru”] “Zucker’s smooth vocals glide over bright strums of a guitar as he sings about his summer on the mellow track.” – COMPLEX

[Of “better off”] “The 21-year-old takes it to the next level…a finely-wrought duet
with fellow Next Big Thing Chelsea Cutler.” – Idolator

Multi-talented, Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker unveils his latest single “thinking 2 much” today—listen here. “thinking 2 much” and Zucker’s recently released single “comethru” are taken from his upcoming EP summer, set for release on September 28th.

Zucker just kicked off his first-ever North American headline tour, the “anything, anywhere tour,” of which 21 of the 23 shows sold out in advance of the tour. See the full list of dates below.

Growing up in suburban New Jersey, 22-year-old singer, songwriter and producer Jeremy Zucker has always been surrounded by music. As a child, he took piano and guitar lessons and formed a band with two friends from elementary school. By high school, he was writing lyrics and producing songs for other people. Eventually, Zucker recorded a rough demo, which became his first real release beach island in the summer of 2015. He followed it with breathe in the fall of that same year as a freshman at Colorado College pursuing a degree in Molecular Biology. He cranked out songs in his dorm room and released them over Soundcloud—one every week. He later transferred them over to Spotify, where breathe’s lead single “Bout It” became the catalyst, hitting Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist.

From there Zucker released motions in 2017 and performed at his first sold-out show at The Studio of Webster Hall that summer. Following the massive streaming success of his 2017 single “talk is overrated” featuring blackbear, 2018’s intensely personal EP glisten delivered the groundbreaking song “all the kids are depressed,” the first widespread glimpse into Zucker’s songwriting ethos. The track has over 30 million Spotify streams to date and its powerful video, directed by Drew Kirsch (Felix Jaehn, blackbear, Louis the Child, Quinn XCII), has over 5 million views to date. In May, he graduated from Colorado College and put his degree aside to finally pursue his dream of making music. As Zucker enters this next phase of his career, he brings a new love letter to life that fans will undoubtedly connect with. “comethru” and “thinking 2 much” set the stage for further music from Jeremy Zucker in 2018.

Meanwhile, Melissa discovers some scandalous secrets about her father sparking her to search for answers. Dolores has been questioning her life choices and struggling with empty nest syndrome more than ever, which is partly due to her distracted workaholic boyfriend David.

Speaking on the track, SG says “Aluna and I met for the first time in LA earlier this year, and I was talking to her about the album concept, and in particular, Dark. Aluna has been a part of so many dance records that I love, so I knew I wanted to make a club track with her! After we ate burritos and hung out, we made “Hurting” super quickly – the whole process was super natural between the two of us, and she has such an amazing ear for production.”

“Hurting” is the latest in a long run of exceptional collabs for SG, with his upcoming album featuring J Warner, Kartell and a host of others yet to be announced. His recent single, “Better” featuring Clairo instantly became a viral hit last month and was labelled “addictive” by Pigeons and Planes with Hypebeast calling it “the perfect summer jam.” After an incredible run of dates across Europe, America, Australia and Asia so far this year, SG also recently announced a massive US headline tour kicking off at Washington DC’s Union Stage on September 25th and making stops atBrooklyn’s Elsewhere on September 28th & 29th and LA’s The Fonda Theater on October 19th.
