Jake Shears

Releases New Track




I Used To Be In Love’ is the brand new single from Jake Shears, available now on Mute. Upcoming album Last Man Dancing will see a release on 2 June 2023, and was introduced in irresistible style recently with first single ‘Too Much Music’. Having reached #11 in the National Airplay Chart, the track received its official live debut at Radio 2’s Piano Rooms (where he was joined by Neil Tennant and the BBC Concert Orchestra), and signalled Jake Shears’ welcome return to Pop. The polymathic star also saw his ‘Tammy Faye’ musical – written alongside Elton John and James Graham – scoop two Olivier Awards last month, after a sold-out London run.

A symphonic blast of house, hedonism, and the healing power of dance music, ‘I Used To Be In Love’ is an anthem of abandoning your worries and finding yourself right at home in a crowd of strangers. It’s a potent highlight of Last Man Dancing, in which Jake Shears takes a lifelong love affair with club culture towards bold creative heights, and at times dystopian depths. 

Listen to ‘I Used To Be In Love’ here:

Jakes Shears, the self-confessed Last Man Dancing, is back where he belongs: at the centre of the party, and central to the pop culture landscape he, without doubt, helped form. The record was conceived between the US, Portugal, and London – where Jake relocated from his New Orleans home during the pandemic – alongside the sort of head-turning guestlist that, in Shears’ cross-pollinating universe, also makes total sense: from Amber Martin (on the recently-previewed ‘Devil Came Down The Dance Floor’) and Boys Noize to Big Freedia, Kylie Minogue, and cameos from Jane Fonda and Iggy Pop. The results summon a fresh start, but also a return to self. Throughout an unorthodox career that has spanned multi-million global album sales, Brits, Ivor Novellos, Grammy award nominations and arena tours, Jake Shears has continued to shape-shift: he has not only written an acclaimed memoir (‘Boys Keep Swinging’) and performed on Broadway, but also opened the award-winning ‘Tammy Faye’ musical to rave reviews. That pull to keep moving – whether on the dancefloor, or in creating cathartic art – has remained a constant in Jake Shears’ extraordinary life. In his own words, “while not everyone might make it to the end, it’s the last ones dancing who are rewarded with the most magical moments.”

With work that still speaks evenly to the margins and the masses, Last Man Dancing will launch alongside Jake Shears’ welcome return to the stage. His UK tour – featuring an intimate London show at Village Underground – sold out immediately, with further live activity confirmed over the months ahead; ranging from the Aladdin Sane tribute at London’s Southbank Centre alongside the Nu Civilisation Orchestra, to an arena tour with Duran Duran this April. Having just been confirmed for this year’s Glastonbury, catch Jake Shears live below with more to follow soon.
