grandson has announced a deluxe edition of his album Death Of An Optimist, due for release on 3rd December 2021 via Fueled By Ramen – the one year anniversary of the album’s original release.
In light of the announcement, grandson has released a video for Drop Dead featuring Kesha and Travis Barker.
“I did Drop Dead as just another 20 something idealist who bites off more than they can chew, but I genuinely think that this generation can make such huge progress,” grandson says. “I believe that starts with admitting that by fighting for something you risk losing everything — and fear can’t or shouldn’t stop us from trying.”
“I loved working on this song with grandson and Travis,” adds Kesha. “From the first listen, I immediately related to the energy of it. To me, it is a self-aware, defiant anthem of proud wild imperfection. It’s a give no fucks, judge me I don’t care, this is me take it or leave it, and while you’re at it, get out of my way song. It’s always so special to be able to collaborate with an artist who knows who they are, and Jordan’s message of honesty and unapologetically being who he is aligns so much with who I am. Shooting the video was a shit show mess of fun. grandson’s energy is high-vibe all the way and we really have as much fun as it looks.”
