Pop-punk artist Northbound, aka Jonathon Fraser, is back with a new single, “Baby’s Breath” from his forthcoming fourth record Juniper. The 10-track LP is due out on July 12 via Smartpunk Records, and also features previously-released tracks, “North Star,” “Science,” and “Big Tune (Fuck Off Forever).”

Fraser says, “‘Baby’s Breath’ is one of the first songs I wrote for this album. Writing this song had the magic that you look for when creating. It popped out of my head and into a demo session with zero effort.”

He continues, “I knew I had found a very important piece of the album puzzle when I finished this one. The bridge is one of my favorite moments on the record. ‘Baby’s Breath’ is about a rather inappropriate emotional triangle that got extremely complicated. This song helped me process a lot.”

For those in need of a heaping dose of fresh pop-punk nostalgia, Northbound is your artist to stream ASAP. Check out the new single below.

“After a few years of laying low and flying under the radar, this album is a bold statement of return. My most focused record to date, Juniper takes heavy influence from the early 2000s era of pop punk with a clear intention: to feel nostalgia for the moment you’re currently in,” the artist notes. “It’s fun to listen to, yet simultaneously invites the listener to feel things. It’s a record about change, pain, and joy. Juniper doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel, but it does spin it in a way that hasn’t happened for a while.”
