Last week Jade Jackson released her new full-length Wilderness. The singer/songwriter is sharing a taste of the album with the single “Don’t Say That You Love Me.” Produced and written by Social Distortion’s Mike Ness. Wilderness is now available via ANTI-. Jackson will be at Los Angeles’s Grammy Museum with Mike Ness on July 16. New fall European tour dates have also been announced in Germany, the Netherlands and more. All upcoming tour dates are listed below.
“‘Don’t Say That You Love Me’ is a song I wrote a couple years ago and it was just floating in my mind as I was trying to decide if it was a Social D song, or maybe better suited for the next solo record,” Ness explained. “I thought of it when we were recording because I liked the idea of a woman’s perspective on this. I think it worked!”
Jackson hails from Santa Margarita in central California, just a few miles from where Buck Owens and Merle Haggard popularized the Bakersfield, California country sound. In her hometown growing up Jade she spent endless nights working at her parents’ restaurant, learning guitar and writing songs at the age of 13. By the time she graduated high school, she had written over 300 songs.
“The message of Wilderness is in how to get through all those tough situations—if you visualize yourself somewhere, all that good energy and intention can get you where you want to be,” Jackson explained.
