Andrew Jannakos: Gone Too Soon – EP Review
Andrew Jannakos’ debut EP, Gone Too Soon, is out now, June 4th, on all streaming platforms. With 6 tracks, including the breakout single and title track, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new music.
From a contestant on ‘The Voice’ to an overnight TikTok sensation, Andrew Jannakos is now a signed recording artist with Sony Music Nashville who just released his 6-track debut EP, Gone Too Soon.
The EP shares a title with his debut single and the song that launched his career thanks to an overnight viral TikTok posted almost a year ago, in July of 2020. When Jannakos released the studio version of the song, it reached #12 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. If you want to know more about Jannakos’ journey into country music, check out our Swag Spotlight we did back in December of 2020 that shares everything about his childhood and musical influences, to his family and support system, as well as his career growth beginning with his time on The Voice and continued through his social media exposure.
Since our interview with Jannakos, he has released two more singles: Wine Country, released in March, and Somebody Loves You, released just last month. Gone Too Soon includes three new songs in addition to the three pre-released singles and each song on the collection was co-written by Jannakos.
This collection is an excellent introductory project for Jannakos as a singer-songwriter. He shares his soft and vulnerable side and can’t help but show the immense love he has for his family. “Like Yesterday” reflects on how quickly time can flies since the moment you meet your person, but how it can also feel like you’ve been together for a lifetime.
“A lifetime ago // When I picked you up then dropped you off back home // Fifty years could pass our hearts beat just as close as they did on that night when we first kissed // Ain’t it crazy babe the way love moves fast and slow // Feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago”
“Somebody Loves You” is about finding that someone that you want to spend the rest of your life with while “We’ve Always Loved” acknowledges the ups and downs of a relationship but also the strength to always stay by each other’s side through it all.
“the hot, the cold, the lows, the highs // from better days to harder nights // the one thing that ain’t ever changed about us // we’ve always loved”
