SINGLE & TOUR NEWS: The Jacques release ‘I Never Want To Be Your Boyfriend’, March 2020 dates


THE JACQUES have shared their new single, ‘I Never Want To Be Your Boyfriend’, as well as announcing an extensive UK headline tour in March.

The track was produced by Dan Swift (Snow Patrol/Ash), and recorded at both RAK and Rockfield Studios. Lead singer Finn explains, “‘I Never Want To Be Your Boyfriend’ is definitely our poppiest song to date… for that reason it’s really fun to play live for me. I wanted the lyrics in the verse to be some of my most surreal – the idea was to have them sound like idioms or commonplace sayings, when in reality you contemplate them and they don’t hold typical meanings at all. Then the choruses go back into full-on pop song register. I think that’s why I chose to repeat the lyrics in the verse – it’s a bit of a parody of the classic English saying.”
