They say nobody likes you when you’re 23, but that’s not the case with jxdn. Celebrating his 23rd birthday today, February 8, the singer-songwriter has returned with his latest offering, “When The Music Stops.” Co-produced alongside blink-182’s Travis Barker and Brian Lee, “When The Music Stops” arrives via Barker’s DTA Records and is the first preview of jxdn’s sophomore album. A title for his forthcoming album has not been revealed, but it is expected to drop later this summer.

Commencing with a delicate guitar strum that persists across the track, jxdn‘s ethereal vocal delivery envelops listeners, gently drawing them into an emotional embrace with the opening lyrics, “Oh darlin, please don’t worry/Life gets better.” With each well-thought-out note and line, the music unwinds an array of emotions—from “waiting for hope” to “I can’t feel me breathing.” Throughout the track, jxdn delves through his introspective mindset, navigating the tumultuous waves of emotions experienced “when the music stops.” As the track reaches its crescendo, he whispers, “You saved me before/You saved me before/But the music saves my soul/The music saves my.” The accompanying visualizer is equally as moving and powerful, capturing jxdn reminiscing, and consequently crying, while watching home videos.

“The music of my life has started playing again,” jxdn shares of his new release. “All I can think about is showing everyone what it sounds like.”

Additionally, in the YouTube description for “When The Music Stops,” jxdn has shared details for “Coop’s Advice,” an online community that was created by his friend Cooper, who tragically passed away on June 9, 2022.

The description reads, “It’s important everyone knows the positive impact Cooper’s story brings. Cooper had dreams to help the world and make the world a better place. Before Cooper’s passing on June 9, 2022, he used the power of his social media reach to create a meaningful and lasting impact. Coop created “Coop’s Advice” to help society understand and address mental health and addiction, especially among the members of GenZ and Gen Alpha. The Coop’s Advice Foundation will continue to pursue Cooper’s mission of trying to help and save lives with continued awareness and education about the dangers of Fentanyl and other unhealthy and negative choices to deal with the underlying issues of mental health.”
