Jessica Lynn announces the "Reimagined" EP. During the pandemic, Jessica Lynn hosted a livestream where she reworked many of her songs, finding new angles and nuances in them. “That’s how the ‘Reimagined’ EP was born,” she says, “We felt it was well-suited for the times, and would be an interesting way to present some of my most well-known releases.” The 4-song acoustic EP, due out next month, September 17, 2021.
The first song released from the EP was "Not Your Woman." Listen here. Jessica telling us why she chose to rerecord it saying, “A few months ago, one of my UK fans requested one of my most well-known songs “Not Your Woman” as a ballad, and this reimagined version was literally written on the spot. Everyone in the stream urged me to eventually release it… and here we are. I referred back to that livestream video actually while recording the track to capture my emotion and excitement of the moment and I am so proud of how it came out and also so grateful for this time I have been able to spend at home to be creative and explore opportunities like this. I have never released anything before where I was the only instrumentalist on the track, but I am very excited to share with everyone such an intimate and honest version of myself with this new music.”
The new, reimagined release reworks the song of infidelity, and moving on as an acoustic piano track. The reimagined recording wonderfully shows off Jessica’s vocal and emotional range, set to her thoughtful piano playing, which touches on melancholy and sadness but is full of female strength and survival. It makes for a fascinatingly different take compared to the brasher, more up-tempo original version of the song, released in 2016. She hopes it will be an inspiration to women everywhere.
