19 year old singer-songwriter Thomas Day has released his new single, “not my job anymore” today via Arista Records. The heart wrenching ballad, which emphasizes the remaining feelings after a breakup, finds Thomas belting out about how he became despondent when he realized he still loves the one who broke his heart. Listen to the song and watch the accompanying video now below.
Thomas said of the song, “I had already been in LA for a week when I wrote ‘not my job anymore’. It was really interesting because I was writing a song every day of the week expressing all of my emotions as specifically as possible. My friend called me on the morning of my last day in LA telling me about some trauma that was thrown upon my ex-girlfriend. As he was telling me all about the situation, I couldn’t help but think to myself how the only thing I truly wanted to do was to help her like I used to. After a short rant about how I was ‘over her’, I got breakfast and headed over to Nick Ruth’s house where I was also meeting my friend Madi Yanofsky. The writing came naturally for all of us. I just poured my heart out talking about how I felt about the conversation that morning, and the song came together.”
“This song touches the parts of my heart that haven’t always felt safe in a long time, but I truly believe, now that the song is here, a part of me has healed in a way it never has before. I hope you heal. I hope you move on. And I hope this song makes you cry and accept your feelings with reassurance. I love all of you with everything I’m made of.”
