As a proud queer black man, Johnny is excited to step out on his own and embrace a fresh sound for his latest single and upcoming EP. About the creative process of his latest project, he says, ďThere was a level of comfort I hadnít experienced in the creation of my music before and it allowed me to open up. The icing on the cake was having it mixed by Elijah Marrett-Hitch, and his magic ears, and mastered by Dale Becker. Their combined level of skill and attention to detail elevated the EP and gave it the polished finish it needed.Ē

JOHNNY ON THE MEANING OF "AGAIN"
"'Again' is an emancipation of sorts. Itís me celebrating parts of myself I was told I wasnít supposed to. Iím shaking off the opinions I was afraid of. Iím living on the other side of what used to hold me back and giving myself permission to enjoy that. Iím falling deeply back into what I was told I had to leave behind. Itís me feeling my oats a little bit too. Thatís part of what made writing this with Aidan Laprete and Mischa Mandel so fun. Iíve never talked like this on a record before. It was liberating. I think this song is also a testament to Aidanís genius as a producer. Itís so clever and infectious. Iím obsessed with his production on this one.Ē
