Cape Town - Platinum-selling artist, Jesse Clegg, is bursting back on the music scene with his much-anticipated new track, Let It Burn

The single marks Jesse's first new original music since the release of I'll Follow You - the collaboration hit with Kentphonik in 2017.  The catchy, upbeat pop-inspired song was released on Friday, 5 July, and is an exciting variation from his acoustic rock sound. 

HERE'S WHAT JESSE HAS TO SAY ABOUT HIS NEW SONG: 

Jesse also added in a statement to the press: "As a songwriter, I enjoy the challenge of experimenting with my sound.  The vibe of this song was exciting to me because it combines my writing style with a really bold and unpredictable production," says Clegg. 

As the 30-year-old mentions in the clip above 'Let It Burn' is a product of his time spent in Los Angeles writing and recording music with different musicians and producers. He worked with multi-platinum producer, Tim Pagnotta (Neon Trees, Walk the Moon, Blink 182) and Chris Whitehall (The Griswolds, Carly Rae Jepsen), and the result of working with such formidable producers is evident in the quality of the new song. 

The song explores embracing the things that you fear. "In the context of a relationship, there are always these moments when you have to make yourself vulnerable to the other person and let them into your life, and we all have fears of being hurt or disappointed.  Ultimately, it's about that moment of conquering your doubts and embracing an experience or a relationship wholeheartedly," says Clegg.
