Jackson Michelson’s “Tip Jar” is out now, March 26th on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
Written by Michelson with Patrick Mencel and Justin Morgan, “Tip Jar” is a song about using a night out with some live music to get over a break-up. After his girlfriend ends it over a phone call, he tells her to keep his records, because he doesn’t want to listen to any music that’s going to remind him of her anyway. Instead, he heads to the bar and keeps throwing 20’s in the band’s tip jar so they’ll keep playing songs all night long and help him create new memories to in an effort to forget about her.
This song is all about losing yourself in a night out, having a good time singing and dancing to music, and worrying about everything else later on. In a recent press release, Michelson shares that “Tip Jar” is one of the most ‘me songs’ he has ever released. He adds that he feels we need fun new music now more than ever this year, and that’s exactly what “Tip Jar” is.
“I’ll toss a 20 in the tip jar // I gotta keep ‘em playing all night long // Tell all my buddies I won’t miss her // If I just keep ‘em playing all our songs // Ain’t reckless behavior, I gotta replace the // Memories we made here in this bar // And if the band can fix my broken heart // I’ll toss a 20 in the tip jar”
