Jakobs Castles Opens the Gates to The New Album 'Enter: The Castle" with New Single 'Catch Me'

Jakobs Castle, the electric passion project of Jakob Nowell, the son of late legendary Sublime frontman Bradley Nowell, is about to release the debut album 'Enter: The Castle' available on Epitaph Records on April 12, 2024. Today Jakob Nowell opens the gates to the new album with the new single 'Catch Me'.

Layering psychedelic guitars and charismatic vocals, Jakobs Castle shares the alluring lead single and music video “Catch Me”, one his favorite songs he’s ever written. Jakob explains,

“The way the reverb sounds on the chorus vocals is so satisfying to me. And the way it rises and falls just hits the sweet spot in my brain.”

The beachy production video features Nowell buried up to his neck in the sand.

With the addition of subtle pitch shifts and synth bass from producer Jon Joseph, it transformed into a soulful, catchy, rocksteady song with new-age pop influences. Which Jakob commented about his debut single,

"”Time Traveler” is close to my heart because it’s the song that led me to signing with Epitaph. The song was born from a writing session between myself and Tim Armstrong. He had this hook that to my ears was so irresistibly catchy and inspiring that I added the verses in no time at all (pun intended). The song we came up with had an old school rocksteady vibe and I took it to my producer Jon Joseph to experiment with it. I wanted to merge the vintage feel and songwriting of Tim with the modern mysteriousness of underground bedroom production. The result is something more than the sum of its parts. Both thematically and sonically I want this song to take people on a little journey through time.”
