Jesse Clegg Throws Out The Rule Book On New Single ‘Speed Of Light’

In his first release since last year’s ‘Let It Burn’, local pop star Jesse Clegg continues to push himself sonically as he drops his most unpredictable single to date – an alternative pop banger titled ‘Speed Of Light’.

The song was birthed while the star was working on some new music in Los Angeles earlier this year where he found himself working with some of the music industry’s most talented players. As the coronavirus pandemic started shutting down the world, Jesse made it back to Mzansi in time and put the finishing touches on the track from here.

Jesse tells us that ‘Speed Of Light’ is an upbeat pop-inspired track about how life can still hold some inspiring surprises, even at our lowest points. “The song is written from the perspective of someone who is dealing with disappointment and regret, and then suddenly stumbles into an experience that allows him to rediscover his passion and feeling of connection.” He adds “It’s ultimately about how, even at our lowest points, life can still hold some inspiring surprises,” explains Jesse about what the song encompasses.”

Jesse wrote and produced the song with Nick Furlong (Avicci, 5 Seconds of Summer, Kygo, Steve Aoki) and Nick Petricca (lead singer of Walk the Moon); the track was mixed by Tim Pagnotta (Grammy-winning producer for Blink 182, Neon Trees and Walk the Moon). the result of working with such formidable world-class producers is evident in the quality of the new song.

The single is an exciting variation from his acoustic rock sound combining his synonymous writing style with a bold and unpredictable production. Speed of Light follows on the back of Jesse’s previous chart-topping hit, Let It Burn, which marked his first new original music since the release of I’ve Been Looking in March 2018; the first and only collaboration he did with his father.
