NEWS: Jason Gould shares powerful ‘World Gone Crazy’ single ahead of ‘Sacred Days’ EP

Acclaimed US artist Jason Gould returns with his powerful new single, ‘World Gone Crazy,’ taken from his upcoming new EP Sacred Days’ out on22nd March. Speaking of his latest track Jason said, “This is an expression of sadness, of anger, of desperation that so many of us have been feeling. And yet even in the devastation that human beings cause one another, if enough of us raise our collective voices and vote for leaders that actually care about children, decency and the future of our planet, maybe we can save ourselves from ourselves.” 

Jason appeals to the body, mind, and soul in his music. He speaks intimate thoughts aloud through his lyrics, carries unbridled energy in the rhythms, and amplifies raw emotion straight from the heart. The New York-born singer, songwriter, performer, and creator is a consummate artist who has enraptured audiences on acclaimed records, on-screen in classic films, and on worldwide tours. Jason’s upcoming EP ‘Sacred Days’ now invites the closest connection yet. 

‘World Gone Crazy‘ is one of the EP’s most impressive and important moments; flawless vocals over slow-building beats give the song an ethereal feel showcasing Jason’s skills as a songwriter as he tries to make sense of the world’s suffering.

“Music is the universal language of feeling” he notes, “It affects your body right away. Then, it makes you think. A lot of love goes into creating, producing, and singing. It’s very vulnerable to make a song and put it out into the world. Creativity is in my nature though. It’s the most important element for my wellness and peace of mind. When a song happens, I can’t take credit for it. It comes through me, and I just apply my instincts.”  

The son of Barbra Streisand and actor Elliot Gould and immensely talented in his own right, Jason started work on the new EP in 2023, collaborating with Allan Rich, Liz Vidal, Dorian Cheah, and Sébastien Izambard of Il Divo. Acting as a conduit, he channelled inspiration as it came to him. “I’ve realized that I like to create from a place of complete surrender,” he notes. “I don’t show up with an idea or agenda; I allow the concepts to flow through me. When I first started writing music, I was very insecure.  I’m finally trusting the process. I gave myself total freedom.” 

The world initially met and fell in love with Jason as an actor. He delivered standout performances in Say Anything, Listen to Me, The Big Picture, and The Prince of Tides. However, he formally pursued music in 2011. Immersing himself in recording, he unveiled the self-titled Jason Gould EP (2012) followed by his debut LP Dangerous Man (2017) and Dark Grey Skies EP (2021) with widespread critical applause. He duetted with his mum Barbra Streisand on ‘How Deep Is The Ocean‘ from the GRAMMY® Award-nominated platinum album Partners which debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard 200.  

Fast forward to 2024 and Jason is starting the new year as he means to go on, paving his own path with a distinct and dynamic sound of his own. 

“I’m following my instincts,” he affirms. “I’m making the music I want to hear, and these songs are an expression of that. I’m a human being who’s trying to make sense of this crazy world, find love, remain purposeful, and be kind to myself and others. The music is my offering.” 

‘Sacred Day’s’ EP is out March 22nd.
