Joanna Sternberg shares new single, “Without You.” The track was Written and produced by Sternberg alone, “Without You” was recorded at their home in Manhattan and was never intended to be made public. The track follows the artist’s previous single “Neighbors.” “I’ll never stop feeling so blue // I’ll never stop thinking of you,” Sternberg sings atop spirited acoustics, “If love songs can work at all, of course they do, but not without you.”

Of “Without You,” Sternberg says: “I wrote this song in an attempt at writing a 1920’s style jazzy number…I even try soloing by scatting in the middle of it! I went to college for jazz double bass and am a huge fan of listening to and playing (and singing) jazz. I will always continue to try and write more songs in this style. This song is meant to be sung in a sort of half-joking manner and the tempo is meant to keep speeding up throughout the song to show the emotion I am trying to convey: nervousness from co-dependent attachment to something or someone you love.”

Sternberg has played shows with Angel Olsen, Kurt Vile, and the Lemon Twigs, the singer/songwriter’s newly announced tour dates include stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle,

I’ve Got Me was recorded and mixed over six days at Brooklyn’s Strange Weather Studios during the summer of 2022 with producer Matt Sweeney and engineer Daniel Schlett . Sternberg wrote its songs from their home, NYC’s Manhattan Plaza, a massive, 46-story universe of living New York City history, artist families and legendary elders.
