Rising pop artist JORDY has shared his vibrant, upbeat new single, “Dry Spell” today. Arriving just in time for summer and the kickoff of Pride Month, the track is a relatable anthem about the challenges of modern-day hookup culture, co-written with and produced by Brandon ‘B HAM’ Hamlin (Kim Petras, Saweetie) and Shae Jacobs (BTS, Gryffin).
“Dry Spell” arrives alongside a music video directed by Queerty Award-winning filmmaker Assaad Yacoub (Trixie Mattel, Aja). Watch the video, which was filmed out in the California desert, now below.
“‘Dry Spell’ is an anthem for anyone who has conflicting feelings about hookup culture,” said JORDY. “I’m an emotional person, but as my therapist says, I’m also in my ‘sexual prime.’ As funny as that sounds, it’s something I struggle with as an adult; I should be able to have fun (safely, of course) but sometimes it’s not as fun when there’s no emotion attached. Now that we have access to every type of app you can imagine, there’s easy access for fun, but also more room for encounters that don’t feel as fulfilling.”
Of the song’s sonic palette, he added, “As always, I love throwing the vulnerable lyrics on top of modern pop production, so that we can dance all of our worries away together. ‘Dry Spell’ is the beginning of a new era and chapter for me, and I couldn’t be more excited about it.”
JORDY is currently on the road supporting Lauren Sanderson on her North American headline tour.
