New York (Associated Press)-It started in her bedroom with only one guitar at the time, but after the recent split into her first solo album, Paris Jackson has begun to deal with heartache.
The 22-year-old Jackson (Jackson) has been a loyal music fan all her life, devoting herself to making her own music, but until now, she has been reluctant to call herself a singer and lyricist.
Jackson told the Associated Press in an exclusive interview this week: “This is one of the greatest feelings I have ever experienced.”
She described her ethereal voice as an alternative ballad, a far cry from the genre of her father, Michael Jackson. As the daughter of the King of Pop, more scrutiny has been added to the loopholes required to release individual songs to the world.
“I am very excited and nervous, but I am confident that people who listen to this record will listen. It will reach them. As for critics and other things, I really don’t think they will know how to criticize it.” Jackson said .
Earlier this year, Jackson and his boyfriend Gabriel Glenn (Gabriel Glenn) became half of the audio duo “The Soundflowers” until the two broke up. She described nursing a broken heart as literally “chest moving in the chest”, but Jackson turned pain into art. “You are everything to me, and now I’m on the ground.” She sang in her new single “Let Down”, which was released last Friday.
In her bedroom time, Republic Records released 11 songs from the concept album “Wilted”, Until November 13, the various stages of grief were expressed in her lyrics: anger, denial, bargaining and acceptance, but the last song, the optimistic “Another Spring”, revealed a stronger woman, let Her wound glowed. ”
Jackson cited many musical influences-including singer-songwriter Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne and Conor Oberst. When she talked about becoming an “avid fan” of the indie rock band Manchester Symphony Orchestra, her eyes lit up. When she heard that the band’s guitarist and singer and composer Andy Hull had made her first record, she was very happy. She flew to Atlanta to work with him and said that the band supported her voice.
“Everyone is very hospitable and they think this project is very sacred. They understand my emotional connection to this and understand that this is my child. They don’t want to do anything that is not true to me, they just brought it to A new height.” Jackson said.
Michael Jackson famously tried to keep his three children out of the spotlight. After Jackson died of an overdose in 2009, Paris and her two brothers (accompanied by 23-year-old Prince and 18-year-old Bigi) lived with grandmother Katherine Jackson. Paris moved to Paris when he was 18 years old and has been engaged in modeling and acting, but always plays music.
In June, she and Glenn made a documentary series on Facebook Watch called “Unfiltered”, which gave her a glimpse of her private life and the duo’s small audio tour. In his testimony, Jackson revealed self-harm and suicide attempts, and said that music is a way to relieve pain.
The upcoming music video will be played with the new single “Let Down”, which is a tribute to young Jackson’s love of horror and blood. In it, the lover of her role is torn from her chest by her lover. One of the recurring scenes was shot in the dark woods, reminiscent of elements from her father’s famous “horror” video. When asked what he thought of her music, Jackson expressed disgust.
“I don’t know. I’m not him, so I can’t speak for him. But I hope he will be happy, and I think he will be kicked because I am happy,” she said.
The pandemic has discouraged most musical performances. Jackson said that she missed the concerts of her favorite band and hoped to perform some performances as soon as anti-COVID-19 measures allow. She said she hoped that music would help people “be less lonely.”
“By creating this, I found a lot of cures. Sometimes I listen to certain songs, like, “Wow, I’m so naive.” But in most cases, it’s like I listen to these songs and The gratitude and joy gained in seeing its development and evolution are the same,” she said.
