Jamie Lynn Noon shares her new single, "(Until I Have To) Say Goodbye To You", her first original song release in seven years. Noon's last release was an ethereal cover of R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts" in December 2017.
"I stepped away from music after feeling I was losing the initial reason for it being a driving force in my life—for the love and passion of it all. It's taken some time to recognize how fragile that can be in the face of obstacles, no matter how big or small—and just life—and to not lose sight of the reasons why we do what we do in the first place," she said. "Like any love, it circles back."
Understated and pensive, "(Until I Have To) Say Goodbye To You" is a folksy ballad reminiscent of current contemporary folk artists like Sarah Jarosz, while also taking us back to the singer-songwriter-diary-era Taylor Swift. Lyrical and haunting, "(Until I Have To) Say Goodbye To You" features airy background vocals and the deft guitar work of Peter White. A song about living, and loving, in the moment, but knowing that moment has an end.
Over the past several years, music hasn't gone silent in the singer/songwriter's life. Noon has continued writing for film and television projects, and contributing songs to charitable albums.
"(Until I Have To) Say Goodbye To You" is out now, with more music to follow.
