Jack River is celebrating the release of her new single by giving fans the chance to win a private performance. The competition comes alongside the release of ‘Real Life’, which arrived last month as River’s first new single of the year.
In keeping with the idea of things existing in real life, Jack River took to social media to announce a competition that will see her performing a private acoustic show for one lucky fan.
Jack River – ‘Real Life’
“I’m going to come visit one of you in real life – at your workplace, or your party, or your school,” the singer said. “And play you a little acoustic show and play ‘Real Life’ in real life because I miss you and this song is about getting back to whatever real life is, getting outside back with real people. So we’re gonna do that!”
The Real Life, Baby competition is open now to all Australian residents. Entrants need to head along to the I OH YOU website, follow the prompts and explain in 25 words or less why you think Jack River should perform at your event.
Upon the release of ‘Real Life’ last month, Jack River explained that the track had been written as a response to being “over feeling feelings” throughout the monotony of lockdowns across these past few years. “I just wanted to swim with strangers in some sparkly foreign sea, see a mariachi band walking by on the sand, and maybe have a conversation with a friendly dolphin underwater,” she explained.
“Anything to get me away from death scrolling and endless headlines about how awful the world is. I wanted to get back to Real Life. Whatever that was.”
