Stream Jonah Yano & BadBadNotGood “Nervous”
BadBadNotGood link up with Japanese artist Jonah Yano for a new single titled “Nervous“, the group have gone into 2019 with new vibes and positive altitude not leaving behind their collaborative streak which began last year.
In an email to Highsnobiety, Yano told us that this slow-burning ballad marks the fifth song he’s ever written and was inspired by music goddess Joni Mitchell. It’s one of those tunes that will make you feel like you’re slow dancing in a burning room, not that you ever need to live that extreme.
“I was listening to a lot of Joni Mitchell at the time and the way she can turn mundane matters of fact into grand metaphors about the intricacies of human relationships inspired me to expand the line ‘cigarettes make me nervous’ into an entire love song,” he said. “So I gotta thank Joni for this one. And BADBADNOTGOOD. And myself. And the sunshine!”
“Before I could even realize what was happening I had a song with one of my favorite bands of all-time. The coolest thing though is that making music with those guys is so fun and easy that while we’re making songs (pluralised because there is more than just nervous hehe) it’s easy to forget their legendary catalogue of genius tunes”, Jonah Yano said.
