Los Angeles, CA – April 8, 2022 – Rising indie rock artist Michigander, the sonic alter ego of Michigan native Jason Singer, has released his new single “In My Head” with Manchester Orchestra via C3 Records. PRESS HERE to listen and PRESS HERE to watch the song’s official music video, shot in Detroit. The electrifying track, which first premiered on SiriusXM Alt Nation’s Advanced Placement, was produced by Andy Hull and Robert McDowell of Manchester Orchestra and written earlier this year before Michigander hit the road opening for Manchester Orchestra on a 5-week winter tour, which wrapped in late March.

Manchester Orchestra was one of the first bands I was really listening to when I started writing my own music, so getting to spend a few days writing in Atlanta with Andy and Rob was the absolute best time,” shares Singer. 

“I’ve sort of always made music one specific way and the process of working with them was totally different. It really opened my eyes to a lot of new possibilities and pushed me to better my craft as a songwriter. And obviously working with people you’ve always looked up to is a surreal experience in itself. Then, I got to spend 5 weeks on the road with them! Their fans and crew were so warm and welcoming; it was the best tour I’ve ever been on. It has all been such an enlightening and incredible experience that has become a highlight of my musical journey.”

“Jason is a supremely gifted songwriter,” adds Hull.

“We had a lot of fun merging our brains together to create this song.”

“In My Head” follows Michigander’s 2021’s critically lauded EP, Everything Will Be Ok Eventually (C3 Records), featuring the buzzworthy singles and Top 5 Triple A radio hit “Let Down” and Top 10 Triple A radio hit “Better.” PRESS HERE to listen to Everything Will Be Ok Eventually, which has amassed over 15 million global streams. The 6-song collection, written and produced by Singer with longtime collaborator and co-producer Jake Rye, soundtracks chasing a dream until it’s real, while offering hope and optimism for the future. Tracks from EWBOE have received immense support across DSPs, with featured placements on key playlists from Apple Music (New Music Daily, ALT CTRL), Spotify (The New Alt, New Music Friday), Pandora (ALT Select Radio), and Amazon Music (Fresh Indie), as well as radio airplay and spins on SiriusXM’s Alt Nation and The Spectrum.

This spring and summer, Singer and his bandmates – Aaron Senor (drums), Jake LeMond (guitar), and Connor Robertson (bass) – will bring their hotly buzzed live show to select cities across the Midwest including Indianapolis, Cleveland, Columbia, Omaha, Fayetteville and Oklahoma City, with the latter four shows supporting Wilderado. Michigander is also set to appear at this year’s Electric Forest festival in his home state of Michigan.

Named one of TuneCore’s Top 10 Rock/Alt Artists for 2021, Michigander emanates a magnetic Midwest spirit, delivering uplifting anthems, raised even higher by six-string fireworks, empowering lyrics, and understated arena ambition.

In 2016, his independent debut single “Nineties” achieved viral success, claiming real estate on multiple major Spotify playlists and cracking 1 million streams on the platform. Michigander’s first two EPs, Midland [2018] and Where Do We Go From Here [2019], have become fan favorites. The latter’s standout single “Misery” has eclipsed 10 million streams and earned Michigander his first Triple A radio hit. Amidst his growing career, Singer and his band have performed alongside the likes of Band of Horses, The Lumineers, Mt Joy, Hippo Campus, Silversun Pickups, and Tokyo Police Club, in addition to recent tourmates Manchester Orchestra and Foxing, and graced the stages of such marquee festivals as Lollapalooza, Summerfest, Shaky Knees and more.

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR MICHIGANDER
“Michigander crafts anthemic dreamscapes and catchy, guitar driven songs built around melody.” – Forbes
“Atmospheric, swinging-for-the-fences indie heartland rock with hints of Lord Huron, The War On Drugs, the last Killers album, and more.” – BrooklynVegan
“Three EPs in, the star of Michigan-based indie-rocker Jason Singer is rising at a stratospheric pace, and with life-affirming singles like [‘Better’], it’s easy to see why.” – Guitar World
“Carefully crafted pop rock that is sophisticated and polished beyond what his years would indicate. Fans of U2, Coldplay or Pete Yorn would find Michigander’s reflective rockers and ballads, poignant vocals, and catchy as fuck choruses, of interest.” – Music Existence
“One of the most talented songwriters of his generation.”
–  Hanuman Welch/Apple Music’s Alt Ctrl Radio
