Indie maverick JAWNY returns with a dynamic new version of “take it back” featuring alternative icon Beck, out today via Interscope Records. The original track was included on last year’s The Story of Hugo EP and now the famously genre-blurring and GRAMMY®- winning legend Beck joins JAWNY as they elevate the song to rambunctious new heights. “take it back” featuring Beck is available now at all digital retailers via Interscope Records.   

“I think it’s no secret that Beck has been a giant influence on me” JAWNY says on the collaboration, “getting to work with him on this record was nothing short of a full circle moment. Having him on the song and being able to play it live together was more than I could have ever imagined.”

JAWNY first realized the potential for “take it back” when performing the Hugo track live but the revamp ended up being far more than even he could have imagined. Built on fuzzed-out guitars, scrappy drums, and a boisterous sing-along chorus, the song thrashes in the spirit of gritty garage rock as JAWNY blows off a lost love. “If she never loved me, then I’m better off alone,” he cooly intones. Beck adds a buzzing layer of guitar, harmonizes on the chorus, then takes over the second verse before JAWNY jumps back in for a blistering solo. “I was always looking at the track as a square and then Beck kind of rotated it. Everything he added, I loved. It felt more alive,” JAWNY says. “I’m super stoked for people to hear it.”

JAWNY is currently supporting Beck on his European tour, which kicked off earlier this week in Edinburgh, U.K.  Next, JAWNY will continue playing live as he joins Oliver Tree on tour starting in August. For now, the Beck-featuring “take it back” is JAWNY’s first release of 2022 and follows last year’s The Story of Hugo EP, which served as the gut-punching prequel to JAWNY’s 2020 Interscope debut project For Abby. 

That 10-track conceptual mixtape features the singer/songwriter’s breakout hit “Honeypie,” which has since amassed over 36 million views on YouTube and more than 700 million streams globally. JAWNY’s entire catalog is nearing 1 billion total streams globally, and now with today’s release of “take it back” featuring Beck, it’s clear that he is destined to reach an even wider audience as he continues to expand. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements coming soon.
