Jethro Tait Releases An Acoustic Cover Of ‘Weirdo’

Local pop sensation Jethro Tait wowed fans with his debut solo EP ‘I Don’t Sleep’ which dropped earlier this year. The project spawned hits like ‘Sad’, his popular Fleetwood Mac cover of ‘Dreams’ and the title track. However, songs like ‘Weirdo’ resonated with fans because Jethro unapologetically confronts his demons on the project and admits boldly opens up about social anxiety.

“As I’ve got older I feel like my perspective on life has got a lot darker. I had really big dreams as a kid and somewhere along the line I feel like I stopped believing I would reach them. Which I hate. As a kid I feel like you have this innocent naivety about the world and how things work and It sucks that, that feeling goes away,” Jethro tells us. “I’ve always been a very quiet and introspective person who over thinks a lot. I do battle with depression and anxiety. All of these things kind of came together in writing this EP. It wasn’t just about making things sound nice, I spent a lot of time on every word and every phrase making sure that it all meant something and expressed how I was feeling.”

‘Weirdo’ sees Jethro opening up about the fact that he loves to spend time at home and prefers spending time making music alone than stepping into certain social situations that make him anxious.

So, in true Jethro Tait-style, the singer released an acoustic version of the track with a video of him performing the song in his house.
