Austin, Texas-based duo Hovvdy and their latest offering, “Jean,” adds another layer to their evolving discography. Released on November 9, the single marks their first release since the 2022 Billboard For My Feelings EP.
“Jean” is a lively yet introspective single that explores the complexities of doing well for those you love while navigating self-doubt and uncertainty. Will Taylor, one half of Hovvdy, describes the song as “tangled in self-doubt and uncertainty yet meant to embrace both the joy and the complications of life.”
