Music mythology dictates that artists who’ve tasted success with a mercurial debut in many cases struggle with their Difficult Second Album. Not so a certain Jack Peñate, who has delighted fans and critics alike with his follow up Everything Is New.
‘Sunny and gloriously assured’, ‘brave and exhilirating’ and ‘rather brilliant’ are just some of the praises showered on Jack’s latest effort, whose popular debut followed the 2007 trend for cockney slices of life, with pearly king Jamie T and queen Kate Nash also finding fame at around the same period.
Jack releases his new single Pull My Heart Away today. Already a huge live favourite, the Paul Epworth-produced single is set to build on the success of previous singles Tonight’s Today and Be The One.
