Jacob Sartorius Reveals Intimate Inner Monologue On 'SLEEP WHEN I'M DEAD' EP - Available Everywhere Now

EP chronicles Jacob’s journey to inner peace and “lyrics were culled straight from the pages of his journal” (Forbes) – read more here

Official video for EP’s title track available today – watch it below


Today (8.3), musician, filmmaker, actor, and social media force Jacob Sartorius shares his SLEEP WHEN I’M DEAD EP. The five-track project finds the 19-year-old – who has built a cumulative audience of 39M+ – learning to navigate LA on his own. Each of the five tracks plays like a page from Jacob’s diary, revealing some of his most intimate thoughts as he worked through his own experiences with love & heartbreak, anxiety, co-dependence and more on his journey to finding inner peace, acceptance and hope for the future.  

The EP illuminates Jacob’s ability to channel songwriting as therapy. While lyrically Jacob continues to pull back the curtain to share his vulnerable inner monologue, sonically the EP blends angsty pop-punk bangers to sly, free-flowing hits. The project – produced by his long-time collaborator Gingerbread (Sean Kingston, Jake Smith, iann dior) and entirely co-written by Jacob - melds the sounds of so many artists Jacob has found inspiration in, including Blink182 to Blackbear to Justin Bieber.

Also out today is the official video for the project’s title track. In the age of FOMO, the “SLEEP WHEN I’M DEAD” video details the ever-so-familiar feeling that there are just not enough hours in the day to accomplish all that life has to offer. Filmed in London and directed by Sam Kinsella (Amber Run, Black Honey, Temples), the video follows Jacob as he runs around the city trying to see and experience it all until the sun finally rises.
