Tommy Newport is back with his new single “Jackpot” in collaboration with Toronto’s very own rap legend Jazz Cartier. The duo continue to unite their unparalleled passion for versatility into a melodious blend of jazz and indie rock.
As genreless pioneers, their new single highlights the euphoric outcomes of experimentalism. Newport explains, “I’ve always loved the idea of merging indie/rock and rap ever since hearing Mark Ronson pairing Action Bronson and Dan Auerbach together in 2016. 4th brought the vibes to the studio with a drum pattern that got the guitar in my hands and thinking of progressions, while Jazz was writing his lyrics. It all came together quickly and felt great.”
The unlikely pairing collides to create a track that soars with Newport and Cartier’s unwavering capability. With lyricism hinting at the parallelled relationship with LA, “Jackpot” comes to life, with blaring basslines, punching melodies and Newport’s renowned falsettos. With undeniable energy and the fire of an ecstatic collaboration fuelling their new single, the duo consolidate their status as tastemakers of their time. Whether it’s their first-class approaches, or simply enthralling individualism that has listeners addicted to their new sound, there’s no doubt that “Jackpot” will accrue fantastic success.
