MIDLAND - Michigander released their second single titled "Mexico" on Friday. The release follows the band's successful debut single "Nineties," which hit the airwaves and streaming services in June.
Michigander is the solo project of longtime Michigan musician Jason Singer. Originally from the tri-cities area near Saginaw, Singer has been creating music all across the Great Lake State for nearly a decade.
"Mexico" was recorded by Singer alone in a spare room at his house and focuses on the departure of Singer's brother from Michigan to El Salvador.
"Life can be weird when people who have been around for so long end up leaving for a while," Singer said.
The project started in 2013 and has been featured on sessions with Daytrotter and Real Feels. Although Singer has been making music and touring for a number of years, this is only his second official release.
"It's really cool to be finally making things happen with Michigander," Singer said. "Massive things are in the works, and I can't wait to share."
According to the band's Facebook page, the debut LP will be released later this year. When asked about it, Singer played his cards close to his vest.
"I'm writing an album. That's just about it," Singer said. "Going to be working with some really cool people on it. Can't really say much more than that for now."
Singer is currently playing bass for Mike Mains on The Living Room Tour and opening each show as Michigander.
