Jacob Sartorius -- the multi-talented musician, actor, and worldwide social media force -- announces his Lost But Found EP, out October 1st. Arriving in time for his 19th birthday, this 5-track EP is Sartorius’ most vulnerable project to date. From catchy alt-rock beats to powerful pop-punk ballads, the EP unlocks a new chapter in Sartorius’ life in the internet spotlight, channeling the unflinching honesty of the ups-and-downs of his rise to fame: the chaos, the disconnect, the anxiety and all that comes in-between.
Jacob co-wrote each of the songs of the EP and enlisted some of pop’s hottest producers and songwriters to collaborate on the project, including Grammy-nominated multi-platinum songwriting and music production trio The Invisible Men (Lil Peep, XXXTentacion, Iggy Azalea, Miley Cyrus), Grammy-nominated produced Sam Ricci (SZA, Kendrick Lamar, Khalid), Jake Crocker (dempsey hope), Tony Rodini (Mod Sun, Bear), Gehring Miller (Cardi B, Normani, Kehlani) and more.
“This EP means a lot to me because it really lets people see a side of me that I’ve feared for a while,” says Jacob Sartorius. “I’ve been very lost at times and as an artist and an adult I feel it’s my job to not sugarcoat what I’m feeling and be honest and real. I made this EP during a really uncertain and scary time in my life. I’m constantly learning and discovering new ways to cope with mental health, so I don’t have to rely on things that would hurt me long term. I just hope somebody can listen to my EP and think ‘Wow, maybe I’m not alone in what I’m feeling,’ and have a positive impact on anyone dealing with the same things I am.”
Ahead of the release, Jacob has shared two singles from Lost But Found. The first -- “For Real” -- is an infectious, The Truman Show-inspired track that playfully explores a sense of disconnection from reality. More recently, Jacob shared “Hey, Hello, Goodbye” featuring dempsey hope, pulling the curtain on the stark realities of the disingenuous relationships that can occur while living in the glass castle that is Los Angeles.
