Aaron Lee Tasjan Details New Album ‘Tasjan! Tasjan! Tasjan!’ & Shares Single
Tasjan co-produced the new record with Gregory Lattimer at Make Sound Good studios in his home-base of Nashville. The result is a “masterclass in interstellar pop, vintage glam, 90s Anglophilia and psychedelic rock & roll,” and Tasjan dedicates the album “to the alternative kids who also felt ‘other’ growing up,” as per a press release.
“No one likes to feel singled out,” Tasjan related. “I’ve encountered this feeling many times in my life including being in line at a drive-thru window in a small town in Ohio and experienced homophobic verbal abuse and harassment after I parked to eat. Be kind to each other, friends, and when our world is back to normal, come meet me at my favorite bar which I’ve raised just high enough to let in everyone.
Tajan also detailed the lead single, “Up All Night”:
“Up All Night” is half party anthem, half cautionary tale. It’s inspired by the times I’ve wondered if I need to get help with my drinking and what it meant that I was worrying about things in the first place?
The 3 things that worry me most in my life are probably my health, being alone, and money. Each of those 3 daily battles became a verse in this song. The first verse explores my financial plan for the foreseeable future, my real-life love life plays out a bit in the second, while the third verse is an homage to the years-long stomach problems I’ve tried to get diagnosed that everyone says is anxiety. I lost track of a handsome gentleman/brilliant drag performer from South Carolina not long after our first date at The Lipstick Lounge. Shortly after, I moved into a new house occupied by my current partner. We lived as roommates for a few months but ultimately it became romantic and she’s become my hero and best friend in the world. For me, this song says that there’s no escaping being alive. Worrying is part of life just like having a good time or even too good of a time.
“Up All Night” arrived with an accompanying music video, premiered by Rolling Stone, watch it below:
