Jeremy Gloff is more than a musician. He’s a gay icon. The Florida-based pop star is back with his 17th album entitled “This” which will be released on May 9, 2011. In his career, he’s played pretty much every style of music you can think of and his tunes are often fast and catchy with grooves that’ll be stuck in your head long after the record is finished playing. “This” is a fun record lovingly dedicated to the non-virgins of the world.
It begins with the title track, a song that would not be out of place on the next Beyonce’ record! The record opens with the singer saying “My name is Jeremy Gloff, bitch!” Handclaps and co-lead vocals from Anye’ Cole let you know right off the bat this album is going to be a non-stop party. Next is “Outsiders,” an electro track that explains that it’s not so bad to be different than everyone else. Track 3 slows things down a bit with the song “Junkie Love,” a track about trading your body for sex. “Back and Forth” featuring MACAViTi picks up the pace again and the chorus is very catchy. “Short Fuse” is next and it’s my favorite song on the album. The chorus “Let’s fuck ’em all up / Let’s take ’em all down” is very anthemic and I know I’m looking forward to singing the words aloud.
The second half of the album begins with “Small City (featuring Shunda K),” and it’s a slower track discussing some of the best cities in the world to “do your thing.” New York lovingly gets a shout out as one of the best cities. “Intentional Victim” is next and it’s a mid-tempo song that is about being able to resist your lover even though he uses you. “Manhunt” is a song that is very close to my heart as I wrote the lyrics for it! Jeremy recorded a demo of this song some time ago and I was so honored that the track made the record. The song deals with wanting to have a night of fun, instead of looking for the one – but also encourages safe sex for these situations. “Never Grow Old,” the second to last track, is a mid-tempo song about preserving your youth. The album finishes with “World Won’t Do It,” and is an empowerment anthem that advises you to to take charge of your own life because the world won’t do it for you.
“This” by Jeremy Gloff will be released on Crunksnotdead Records on May 9th, 2011. It will be available on Amazon.com as well as iTunes. If you are in Tampa, Florida, see below for details on the album release party.
