Melbourne singer-songwriter Jackmann has shared the latest single from his forthcoming LP, ‘3-6-27.’
Released today (September 10), the song is the last single before Jackmann releases his debut album, ‘Low Key,’ tomorrow. It follows ‘All Or Nothing,’ ‘Not A Bad Person’ and ‘The Wolf and The Hare.’
The latest single has significant religious and philosophical connotations. In a press release, Jackmann explains the song’s inspiration directly stemming from Bertrand Russell delivering his ‘Why I Am Not A Christian’ address in Battersea on the titular date.
“It was a pivotal moment in Western thought on expressing one’s belief (or lack thereof), and whether God indeed existed,” he said.
“Christianity was never the same since.”
“This song is written from the perspective of God to his Church (Russell in particular) how a deity might feel about being left behind by those who once considered Him everything.”
“I think it translates well to every narcissist who believes themselves the centre of someone else’s Universe.”
The single dropped alongside an official music video, directed by V. Solilova.

Sam Okell produced ‘Low Key’ at Abbey Road Studios, where he also serves as an in-house engineer. Jackmann described the album as “a collection of songs about experience, relationships gone awry, identity and commitment.”
