Wolfie’s Just Fine, the unfunny side project from singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jon Lajoie premiered a new song yesterday with Paste Magazine. Fans can stream “Save The World” now at this link:
“Save The World” is taken from the new EP Perfection, Nevada, which will be released on June 22. It was produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, The Faint) and mastered by Grammy award winner, Bob Ludwig.
Perfection, Nevada (recorded entirely in Omaha at Mogis’ studio), is an exploration of Jon Lajoie’s own coming of age story-packed with references to classic nineties films, iconic grunge fashion, and synth programming.
Earlier this month Wolfie’s Just Fine released the song and music video for the first single “Break My Back”, which can be seen with Billboard.com here.
“I always knew this follow-up would thematically and sonically be channeling my early teens, and the chaos, hurricane of emotions, repression, and confusion that period represented for me,” Lajoie explains.
It picks up perfectly where its predecessor – debut album I Remembered but Then I Forgot – left off.
That album, which featured ten original songs whose inspirations range from the perils of young love to the strange ways in which B-movies and summer blockbusters can leave an imprint on our lives, was released in 2016 to critical praise.
Lajoie found success as a comedian, actor, and musician best known for his role as Taco in the FXX series The League, as well as his YouTube persona “Everyday Normal Guy.” Wolfie’s Just Fine showcases his undeniable talent as a songwriter.
