Opelika, Alabama doesn’t exactly scream “birthplace of the next great pop band,” but it just might be. Weekday Records, a joint venture label with Sony RAL, is excited to announce the debut album from Opelika’s Jule Vera, Waiting On The Sun, out June 16, 2017. Billboard today shared a new song from the album, titled “Something Good” and raved about the single, saying “There’s an air of ’60s Motown and classic Broadway musicals to “Something Good,” but the song’s giddy piano licks and bass groove are so winsome and familiar, the whole thing’s tough to place in any particular setting. Simply put, it’s a pop song, in a very classic sense.”
Waiting On The Sun was recorded and produced by Frequency (known for his work with Misterwives, Eminem, Rhianna, Bebe Rexha and recently on The Hamilton Mixtape). The album is currently available for pre-order. Jule Vera will hit the road all summer on Vans Warped Tour.
