Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Jennifer O’Connor is releasing her first album since leaving Matador Records back in 2009. On November 8th, O’Connor will digitally release I Want What You Want on her own Kiam Records. Though she left Matador unsure if she’d continue making music, she says her return to the studio ushered in feelings of perseverance, accepting, and starting over, which are major themes on I Want What You Want.
O’Connor blends the negative feelings that can inspire someone to move on with her soothing vocals and strong guitar solos on her new track “Already Gone.” “This was the first song I wrote for the record. I was feeling let down by someone I really looked up to, but also kind of angry,” she explains. “On a positive note, I’m quite proud of the guitar solo I played on this recording, on a very nice, borrowed Jazzmaster.”
