Chicago’s J Douglass & the Sullen Hearts has released a brand new single entitled “You Can’t Fix What Ain’t Wrong.” The song was intended to be the final track on a new full-length album. But, due to COVID-19 wreaking havoc on all plans this year, the album is currently on hold. However, “You Can’t Fix What Ain’t Wrong” is a song which just kind of needs to be heard before the upcoming election.
Singer Jason (AKA J Douglass) had the following to say about the new song:
“Over the past four years, we’ve all had to endure one of the darkest periods in American history. At the same time, I went through a divorce, came out as queer and nonbinary, left a band that meant a lot to me, lost a lot of friends (and faith in people), and saw my mental health go off the rails it was already barely on. I also discovered a lot of things about myself, fell in love, and spent a lot of time reflecting. I’m conflicted about a lot of things right now. It’s an odd place to be, knowing that you’re in a time in your life you will look back on as one of the darkest, all while giving it your all to find what it takes to be a fully realized human being – something I’m not sure I’ve ever been.
This song is about the uncertain future, a more uncertain past, and my attempts to find some sort of solid ground to stand on. I don’t know what that will look like, or if I’ll ever find it. That’s a frightening prospect. This is me coping with it.”
