Tobias Jesso Jr. made waves on the strength of a few super lo-fi home recordings, but he's gearing up for a full LP that'll be his most produced work yet. He's just shared "Hollywood," which was produced by Chet "J.R." White, formerly of Girls. It's a great track, a heartstring-tugging six-minute tearjerker built up on a simple piano line before it expands with drums and horns; Tobias's emotional vocals about trying and failing to make it as a songwriter in L.A. are giving us a firm Lana Del Rey vibe. Check it out - the full LP will be out early next year.
