A landmark moment for the rising artist, the Constellations EP presents Jade LeMac’s first body of work in a stunning collection of emotive alt-pop songs. Exploring themes of heartbreak, introspection, vulnerability, and resilience, the EP showcases Jade’s vast songwriting dexterity while creating a cohesive sonic world that is distinctly Jade LeMac.
Speaking on the EP, Jade describes, “I’m very excited to be releasing my first EP. It’s named after ‘Constellations,’ the first song I had released. It’s the song that started this whole journey and I wouldn’t be here without it. I have learned so much about myself, my song writing, and storytelling through this EP. The process has made me explore my own creativity and imagination, and brought me to these places and stories that never would have existed if I hadn’t written it. Overall, I’m hyped about being able to share this first piece of me. It’s the beginning of a new chapter in my own story, and I can’t wait for what’s to come and to continue doing what I love.”
Speaking on the lead EP single “Car Accident,” Jade notes, “This is the first time I have ever written from the perspective of two people and I love how subtle but how impactful the changes are. I was actually writing the lyrics on the bus and as I was coming up with this story in my head I was seeing myself inside of these characters and feeling all of these feelings of two people who have both lost something, and I ended up just crying the whole way. It’s probably one of my favourite songs on the EP.” Jade also released a lyric video for standout EP track “There’s People Watching” – view here.

Today’s release follows fall 2022 single “Meet You In Hell,” which garnered critical love from outlets like Just Jared, Pride.com, and Raydar Magazine, as well as Spotify support on playlists such as Pop Sauce and Young & Free. Jade was also championed by GLAAD as one of their “20 under 20” LGBTQ Changemakers of 2022, which Teen Vogue spotlighted as well.
