The Ready Set Opens Up About 'Feel Good Now,' Touring and His Next LP (Exclusive)
The Ready Set's Jordan Witzigreuter is loving life. He just released his new EP, 'Feel Good Now,' and is about to head out on tour with his pals in All Time Low. We got to catch up with the singer-songwriter to find out more about his new tunes, and the exciting months ahead.
Jordan exploded onto the pop scene with his hit song 'Love Like Woe,' the first single off his debut, 'I'm Alive, I'm Dreaming.' Now, The Ready Set is back with a new set of upbeat songs, including the undeniably catchy 'Hollywood Dream.'
Here, Jordan opens up about his newfound fame, the inspiration behind his latest single and when fans can expect to get their hands on a full-length album.
JSYK: How has your life changed since the success of 'Love Like Woe'?
Jordan Witzigreuter: Life has definitely gotten way busier, and I've gotten opportunities to do some amazing things and play to some insane crowds. It feels like it was just a cool introduction. Makes me very excited for the future.
JSYK: Is the title of your new EP a statement or a directive?
JW: A little bit of both. If you want good things to happen, you've gotta be feeling good all the time, and feeling positive and optimistic. I think it's just a bright, uplifting, simple concept, so I love it.
JSYK: Was 'Hollywood Dream' inspired by anyone in particular?
JW: Not really. It's a story about wanting something that seems incredibly out of reach, but not wanting to give up on it, turned into a desperate love song.
JSYK: You're heading out on the road with All Time Low soon. What are some of your must-haves on tour?
JW: I really just overpack and bring literally everything with me, but I like to bring a ton of jackets, even if it's not cold.
JSYK: When can fans expect your next full-length album?
JW: Hopefully spring of 2012! I'm gonna have some other things come out before then though, so new music is always coming.
