‘In case you miss me’: John K’s new album is something you don’t want to miss

Up-and-coming pop star, John K is back with a brand new album ‘In case you miss me’ now available for streaming.

The singer-songwriter said that this release left him “overwhelmed and emotional” as it felt like a debut album all over again. 

“It was mainly overwhelming in a lot of good ways, mainly positive ways, to just thinking about the entire process of this whole album. I got a little emotional this morning just thinking about all of the songs we’ve made,” said John over Zoom.

He also expressed his excitement for everyone to listen and relate to his new album, as he and his team put their heart and soul into crafting it. 

“It’s just an emotional day and we’re really excited ‘cause everytime we release an album, it should be ‘this is the best thing I’ve ever done and I’m so proud of every single one of these songs’ and that’s what this is,” he added.

Given that the pandemic has made things different, John shared that a lot of the songwriting for this album was done over numerous Zoom meetings.

“Zoom has entirely shifted the entire culture of songwriting and that’s not going to go away. [It was] challenging, very different, but [it] opened up a lot of doors. We’ve adapted and this album proved that it’s very possible to piece together a quality piece of work over Zoom, I mean 85 percent of this entire project is done over Zoom,” he said.

The humble musician said that his love for singing and producing music, especially in making this project, would not be possible without the supportive people around him.

“I thought it would never happen but I always kind of stayed around it and I always had people around me, really pushing me to kinda stay with it and say ‘no you really have a gift’. And I have enough people convincing me to stay long enough and to start to find the right people,” he added.

He even shared that besides his team, his wife was among “the sharpest of them all” when it came to giving notes or advice. “She’s the reason behind, and actually the motivation in every song I write.” 

While making music with his team and best friends, he said that he’s also open to collaborating with artists like Ed Sheeran, John Mayer, Silk Sonic and Bruno Mars in the future.

After the pandemic, John said that he wants to do an ‘In case you miss me’ tour in Southeast Asia. “[The] first thing I’m [going to do] when this [pandemic] is all over is come to Southeast Asia on tour.” 

Known for his hit ‘If we never met’, which had over 300 million streams last year, John K has yet again given us an album that will surely have us playing it on repeat.
