LA-based singer-songwriter jxdn has announced details of his widely anticipated new album, WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS, which will be released June 28th via Travis Barker’s DTA Records [album artwork / tracklist below]. Today, jxdn has also shared the forthcoming album’s lead single, "WHAT THE HELL," which is available on all streaming platforms and accompanied by an official music video directed by Hunter MorenoWHEN THE MUSIC STOPS marks jxdn’s long awaited follow up to his celebrated debut album Tell Me About Tomorrow.

"What do I hear when the music stops? I heard silence like I had never heard before. I heard an emptiness that overtook me. I missed the music of my life, I missed the safety it gave me. I had lost my love for the feeling. I went to hell and back since my last album. I questioned myself, I questioned my music, and I questioned life and its purpose. And through all that, I heard faint sounds ever so often that resembled a beautiful melody. They guided me through the silence back to the place I call home - the music. Keep listening, Keep holding on to tomorrow. Especially when you don’t hear anything anymore. Especially when the music stops. This one's for. This one’s for you. This one’s for us." - jxdn

Having reached RIAA gold status and amassed over one billion streams worldwide, jxdn has established himself as a gen-z ambassador for a generation of fans too young to have experienced pop punk’s initial explosion in the 2000s. Co-produced by Barker and Andrew Goldstein, WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS, wades deeper into the genre and features seventeen songs including the album’s title track which was released earlier this year. WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS is available for pre-order today in a variety of physical formats including limited-edition signed vinyl and CDs with additional products launching in the coming weeks.

WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS follows the release of jxdn’s 2023 standalone singles "Chrome Hearted," "Elevated Heartbreak," and his cover of d4vd’s "Romantic Homicide."

jxdn’s celebrated debut album Tell Me About Tomorrow arrived in 2021 to critical acclaim and has since amassed more than one billion global streams to date. Upon its arrival, the album earned jxdn a number 3 on Alternative New Artist Albums, number 5 on Top New Artist Albums, and number 11 on Digital Albums on the Billboard charts. Furthermore, jxdn was included in Variety’s ‘Power of Young Hollywood’ 2021 Music impact list and Billboard’s ‘21 Under 21’ list for the two consecutive years he was eligible (2020 and 2021), in addition to garnering nominations for both a MTV VMA and MTV EMA in 2021.
