New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
With three No. 1 hits under his belt that The Washington Post notes are "packed with detail" from his billion-streamed debut for MCA Nashville, Home State, singer/songwriter and 2020 ACM New Male Artist of the Year nominee Jordan Davis
now eagerly turns the page to his next chapter with four new songs for fans. And it's his retrospective "Almost Maybes," a light-hearted salute to the things in life that don't work out in exchange for those that do, that leads as the EP's first single, available everywhere today, May 8 ahead of Jordan Davis, the EP, which arrives Friday, May 22.
"This is one that feels universal. For the few things in life that do fall into place and work out; there are a lot more that don't," shares the Louisiana native of his lead single. "This is for those times, the 'almost maybes.'"
The artist Rolling Stone and Billboard named an "Artist to Watch" early on in his career penned the track alongside songwriting heavy-hitters Hillary Lindsey and Jesse
Frasure. Davis initially debuted "Almost Maybes" on his recent headlining Trouble Town Tour where night-after-night he watched fans across the nation embrace its message:
Here's to the almost so close
It's over out of the blues
Here's to the hey I think we need to talk
And the it ain't me it's you's
Here's to the tears and beers
And wasted years on the weeds that look like daisies
I wouldn't be sitting here next to you
If it weren't for the almost maybes
Davis' forthcoming EP, much like its creator, toes the rare line between commercial relatability and intricate songwriting. From the reflective to the feel-good, both exist simultaneously in Davis and his self-titled EP, produced by Paul DiGiovanni.
"Almost Maybes" follows Davis' recent releases like the deeply personal "Detours," a collaboration with popstar Julia Michaels
for "Cool Anymore" and tour title-track "Trouble Town." And as Forbes recently noted, "the hits just keep coming" with recent single "Slow Dance in a Parking Lot" hitting No. 1 on the Country radio charts after back-to-back No.1 hits "Singles You Up" and "Take It From Me."
