    It makes sense that Henry Jamison's father is a classical composer and his mother is an English professor, because on his latest song "The Jacket," he tells a vivid love story packed with metaphors and specific details. His soft voice is laid over a bed of distant percussion and cinematic guitars; it's much more than a song about a jacket, it's also about finding meaning in the little things. "This song is basically a story of longing for humanity in dehumanized space, told through various metaphors of light and temperature: fluorescence, phone glow, flat screens and air-conditioning," Jamison told Baeble. "Sterile environments are juxtaposed with the invisible glow of a human being as I try to find the words to express my longing without any feeling of support from my environment. It was recorded on a mountain, with Ethan West in his studio in Goshen, VT." This is the follow up to his single, "Real Peach."
