16 SEPTEMBER 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, Multi-Platinum Certified singer, songwriter, and producer Jeremy Zuckerreturns with a new collaboration with New Zealand alt-pop star BENEE entitled “I’m So Happy”. It marks his first release since 2021 and kickstarts a new sonic chapter—listen to “I’m So Happy” feat. BENEE HERE.
“I’m So Happy” sees Jeremy evolve once again. His voice rises and falls in waves of delicate emotion over a rich sonic landscape, and meanwhile, BENEE provides an equally irresistible verse as both artists’ collective voices melt into an addictive hook. Most importantly, “I’m So Happy” heralds Jeremy’s next era as it paves the way for his forthcoming new project and much more to come.
Jeremy says, “‘I’m so happy’ is a song about fantasy. I wanted to flip the idea of longing; instead of wishing to be somewhere with a special someone, I wrote the song while wishing to be somewhere *without* someone. The contradiction of the lyrics versus the instrumental is what I love most about it. Sonically, it has elements that may remind listeners of my old songs. I’m so grateful to BENEE for her part in creating this song – I hope you guys love it as much as we loved making it.”
BENEE chimes in, saying, “When Jeremy first sent me the song, I was instantly drawn to the lyrics. I love how this song makes me feel when I sing it.. especially the hook! For me, this song is definitely about coming out the other end of getting over the wrong person & them finally being out of your life lol. I was so stoked to work on this song with him & was equally stoked with being able to make the video with him in LA.”
Last year, Jeremy dropped his sophomore LP CRUSHER to widespread acclaim. Beyond gathering 140 million total streams, office magazine hailed it as “very intimate,” while EUPHORIA. raved, “CRUSHER is arguably Jeremy Zucker’s most raw and emotionally in tune project to date.” Consequence proclaimed, “Jeremy Zucker’s new album CRUSHER features him leaning heavier into a more anthemic, live feel.”

ABOUT JEREMY ZUCKER
Jeremy Zucker’s music unfolds like the kinds of stories you share with your best friends. It’s that intimate, detailed, personal, and meaningful. This approach has cemented the New Jersey-born singer, songwriter, and producer as a quietly impactful voice in mainstream music. Since emerging in 2015, he has amassed a staggering 9.5 billion global streams and sold 4 million albums. His catalog consists of definitive anthems, such as the Gold-Certified records “talk is overrated” feat. blackbear and “all the kids are depressed” and Platinum-Certified records “you were good to me” with Chelsea Cutler and the breakout “comethru,” which The FADER hailed as “the intoxicating crush anthem that’s become his calling card.” He has teamed up with likeminded visionary Chelsea Cutler for the collaborative EPs—brent  and brent ii . His full-length debut, love is not dying, bowed in the Top 25 of the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart and garnered widespread praise. Not to mention, he’s received critical acclaim from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard, PAPER Magazine, Wonderland, and more. Along the way, he graced the stages of festivals such as Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Reading & Leeds, Firefly, and more in addition to making appearances on television shows, including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Late Show with James Corden, and TODAY Show, to name a few. His second full-length album, CRUSHER, arrived in 2021 to widespread acclaim and paved the way for his biggest tour thus far, “MORE NOISE !!!!!”, selling out dates in North America, Europe, UK, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. He embarks on another era in 2022, beginning with “I’m So Happy” feat. BENEE.
BENEE is the dreamy voice of a disaffected generation who broke through in 2020 with “Supalonely,” her irresistible, four billion streaming alt-pop banger that practically defined the pandemic experience. Twenty-two-year-old Stella Bennett mixes her deeply heartfelt reflections on life in suburban Auckland, New Zealand with offbeat and often whimsical lyrical notions, all produced with a technicolor ear for cooked beats and unpredictable hooks. A fervent online following were drawn to BENEE’s two intriguing EP releases, FIRE ON MARZZ and STELLA & STEVE, before her guest-packed, yet highly personal, Hey u x album was released at the tail end of 2020. The album was a vibrant musical world with guests ranging from Grimes and Lily Allen to Gus Dapperton and Muroki (another New Zealand teen BENEE has since signed to her own label, Olive). It was listed as one of Billboard’s “25 Best Pop Albums of 2020,” noting that BENEE “contemplates the woes of Gen Z with a keen ear for choruses and arrangements that oscillate between indie rock and hyperpop.” Stereogum praised its “quirky but impeccably produced pop music” and Vogue called it “13 tracks of heavenly indie-alt-pop.” Platinum Awards piled up around the globe, and she performed “Supalonely” — live from New Zealand — on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Ellen, and Late Night with Seth Meyers and recorded a heartfelt live version of album opener “Happen To Me” for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. A year on, BENEE returns with her 2022 Lychee EP, with her song “Doesn’t Matter” revealing the singer’s journey through the emotional clatter of 2021. Following the EP release, BENEE toured across North America, Europe, and the UK on her headline world tour, and now she’ll be returning to North America for select dates this fall.
