Young Jonn tells Apple Music about His Transition from Producer To Artist

What really triggered that was back in 2017 when I lost my mum. I started spending so much time by myself. I wasn’t turning up for my studio sessions or being in the studio with artists like I used to. So I had so much music lying around because I was recording so much. This period was what really made me start putting out music, because I never really planned to.

Young Jonn tells Apple Music How He Feels Releasing His Debut Album, ‘Jiggy Forever’

I can’t lie, it feels good. It feels amazing. I feel blessed, regardless of what the outcome is. I never saw this coming, I never planned for this. I’m here today dropping my debut album and it feels so surreal. The love has been crazy since I started dropping my music. There’s been a lot that’s happened in my life and I feel so blessed, regardless of what anyone thinks.

Young Jonn tells Apple Music What Fans Can Expect from the Album
It’s big summer vibes. The right transition into summer time. Under the sun, by the beach.

Young Jonn tells Apple Music about His Recording Process

When I was recording this album, I had no idea I was recording THE album. Probably because of my background as a producer, I’m always recording. I was doing a lot of travelling last year, doing a lot of shows outside my country. I have a studio setup with me, that I carry in my bag. So wherever I find myself, I’m recording. I had so much music around, so let’s pick what carries the emotions I want to be on the album. Recording didn’t seem like I was recording the album. I was just having fun and doing my thing, like I always do.

Young Jonn Tells Apple Music about his Upcoming Tours

I’m touring from May. Europe in May. Canada in June and America in September. I’m pretty much on the road throughout this year. I’m excited.
