Jaron Gets ‘Dressed’ for New Album
Jaron of Jaron and the Long Road to Love releases his new album, 'Getting Dressed in the Dark,' on June 22, and the titles of both his "band name" as well as the album conjure up images of all sorts of scenarios. For Jaron, it was a reference to his journey of love and his sudden entrance into country music.
"I'm not getting it right and I don't know if I ever will, but I'm not going to give up trying, and I think that's okay," Jaron tells The Boot. "I don't think I'll ever achieve perfection, but I want to keep looking for it. I feel like 'Getting Dressed in the Dark' is having faith in yourself and just saying, 'When I emerge into the light, hopefully I'll get it right.' And then there's a lot of funny other visuals that will come up when you get dressed in the dark that people have suggested to me. I've heard 'getting dressed before the sun comes up and leaving somebody's house.' I've heard a lot of those, but my intention was using it metaphorically speaking ... The title models itself after my journey and foray into country music. I didn't really plan on going country. I didn't plan on going any genre. I just planned on making music and telling my stories and just hope that people will find me, and they did."
Fans can now pre-order Jaron's 'Getting Dressed in the Dark' at iTunes, and if they do, they will be able to get the bonus track 'Happy for You' for free.
