JACOB SARTORIUS ANNOUNCES HIS MAJOR LABEL DEBUT EP
LEFT ME HANGIN’
AVAILABLE OCTOBER 6 THROUGH RCA RECORDS
SHARES LYRIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “SKATEBOARD”
Pop sensation Jacob Sartorius will release his brand new Left Me Hangin’ EP on October 6. This will be his first release under his major label deal with RCA Records. The pre-order goes live today and unlocks an instant download of the new single “Skateboard” and the previously released fan favorite “Hit Me Back” [feat. blackbear].
Amping up excitement for the EP’s impending arrival, Jacob just shared the lyric video for “Skateboard.”
Written by powerhouse hitmaker Julia Michaels [Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez], Jacob’s voice cruises over a slick R&B beat into an unshakable hook—“Hey, I’m gonna ride this skateboard down the block, forget my problems when I reach the top”—punctuated by piano and handclaps.
“Skateboard” arrives hot on the heels of “Hit Me Back,” which racked up 4 million YouTube/VEVO views and nearly 3 million Spotify streams to date. In addition to praise from New York Times, Idolator, Just Jared Jr., and more, Billboard claimed, “with the release of each new song, he’s closer to the dream of pop stardom.”
As a special treat for his fans, on September 30, Jacob will perform three special shows in three cities. This gives fans the first opportunity to experience the new tunes LIVE.
Following a year of independent success, including two RIAA gold certifications for his debut single “Sweatshirt” and “Hit or Miss” as well as sold out shows worldwide, Jacob excitedly enters into this new partnership with RCA Records. He’ll be revealing more big surprises very soon!
This fall, Jacob takes Left Me Hangin’ on the road across Europe accompanied by Bars & Melody and The Bomb Digz with special guest appearances by Lukas Rieger.
