'Idol' alum Brooke White releases debut single as Jack and White, 'Gemini': Hear it here! -- EXCLUSIVE

Posted on

Brooke White Jack

Over two years after the release of her post-American Idol record, High Hopes and Heartbreak, sunny Season 7 American Idol alum Brooke White is back, but no longer as a solo artist.

White now sings alongside Jack Matranga in a duo they’ve named Jack and White, which formed earlier this year after the two met for a songwriting session for White’s own album. “Everything we started writing started sounding like its own thing,” White explains to EW. “This wasn’t a Brooke White record, this was a collaboration.” And so, the duo was born.

A few months later, Jack and White are set to unveil their debut EP, Gemini, on August 30. The disc, currently available for pre-order on iTunes, has a “modern folk-pop” sound according to White. The singer, in true songwriter fashion, also describes her duo’s sound with an image: “Horseback riding down the Pacific coast—that’s what it is!”

EW has the exclusive stream of the pair’s debut single, “Gemini,” a luminous track that, as the lyrics state, walks “a fine line between darkness and sunshine.” Check it out below:
