GRAMMY® nominated singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JP Saxe unveils his brand-new single entitled “The Good Parts” via Arista Records. Listen HERE. The track was penned by Saxe and produced by close collaborators Malay (Frank Ocean, Lorde) and Ryan Marrone. Saxe will perform the song on NBC’s Today Show on Monday, November 21st.
Regarding “The Good Parts”, Saxe states, “This song is about trying to find the healthy recognition that there can be beautiful parts in a relationship that ends. You can heal without having to destroy it, and you can also heal without over-romanticizing it.”
“The Good Parts” follows the release of “When You Think of Me,” which Billboard included in their sought-after ’10 Cool New Pop Songs to Get You Through the Week’ list and stated that “Saxe’s vocal fragility [gave] ample room above the somber keys for maximum emotional effect.”
Building on the back of his breakout 2021 album Dangerous Levels of Introspection, Saxe continues to make waves this year with sold out performances, including tour dates with Alicia Keys and Lewis Capaldi, as well as the release of Dangerous Levels of Introspection (Stripped) in early 2022. Saxe just landed his first #1 spot as a songwriter at country radio with “Wishful Drinking” by Ingrid Andress ft. Sam Hunt. The track received a Best Country Duo/Group Performance nomination for the 2023 GRAMMY® Awards.
