New York’s very own acoustic-pop hopeful Jake SantaLucia is gearing up to officially release his new single “I Remember” later today. But, thanks to the power of the internet and a little bit of friendship we got our hands on the first single off Life’s Not Fair a couple of hours early, and you can stream it right now.
We actually caught up with Jake SantaLucia last week, and he gave us a little behind the scenes storytime on what inspired “I Remember,” stating; “I Remember” is actually a story about my best friend Tanner, and the struggles he went through while dealing with a breakup. I had written this really neat chorus idea with the basic structure laid out on guitar. So, I came to him with that I had and played it for him and we basically built that song off of his recent relationship because it was a very similar situation to what he had been going through.”
For even more on what inspired SantaLucia’s new emotionally-charged single, make sure you check out our full in-depth interview and learn even more about his upcoming EP, Life’s Not Fair in the process.
“I Remember” took SantaLucia and his producer around four months to complete, with a new delay being set for Life’s Not Fair which will see the upcoming EP transform from a three-track listening experience to a full-blown five-track affair. But, fans won’t have to wait too long as another single titled, “Monuments” should see its release in mid-October.

We’ll have our full track-by-track review of “I Remember” ready to go later in the week after we spin the new single a few more times.
