After receiving widespread critical acclaim and inciting fan anticipation around their reunion, singers, songwriters and producers Jeremy Zucker and Chelsea Cutler unveil their anxiously awaited new EP, brent ii—listen HERE.
On the release of brent ii, Jeremy says, “for chelsea and i making ‘brent ii’ was an important reminder of why we love making music, especially during such a difficult year. it has been almost 2 years since this first ep, and i think that project really set a standard for us and our fans. i’m extremely proud of ‘brent ii’ and think it shows fans a lot of personal and artistic growth from both of us, while keeping things in the same world we created with ‘brent’. i’m so incredibly proud of the 5 new songs that became ‘brent ii’.”
Chelsea chimes in saying, “making ‘brent ii’ was so special for jeremy and i because we knew exactly what we wanted to accomplish heading upstate new york for this project. ‘brent ii’ feels like a warm hug, and we hope it gives listeners comfort during this tumultuous year. we’re so proud of it and can’t wait to share it with the world.”
The harmonious and heartfelt duet has already gathered nearly 8 million Spotify streams and over 1 million YouTube views on the music video. The five-song brent ii collection hinges on the inimitable collaboration between Jeremy and Chelsea. Its next single, “emily,” glides over hushed acoustic guitar as their voices entwine on a vivid recollection, “In Paris you asked me, if I was afraid that we’d fall out of love, would that be okay?” The two discuss the mutual concern of parents watching their kids grow up on “parent song.” Meanwhile, Jeremy’s solo piano-driven “brooklyn boy” elicits a response from Chelsea’s glowing “the stars,” ushering the EP to a confessional and cathartic close. See the full tracklisting below.
Next Wednesday, February 10th, Jeremy and Chelsea will bring the EP to life with brent: live on the internet, broadcasting live exclusively via Moment House. They’re gearing up to play brent ii from top-to-bottom for the first time, in addition to gems from the original brent, other collaborations and surprises. Tickets are available HERE.
In the middle of the global pandemic, Zucker and Cutler safely traveled to a cabin in upstate New York as they had when crafting their platinum single, “you were good to me,” and 2019 fan favorite EP, brent, to write, record and produce five new songs that continue the brentstory. PAPER Magazine hailed them a “pop power duo,” as Ones To Watch said brent “beautifully showcases Zucker and Cutler’s stunning vocals alongside one another.” Check out the trailer for brent ii HERE.
