Pre-orders for the 7 song EP is available now with instant-grat track and mesmerizing lead single “Hotel Costes.” Available today on his newly launched VEVO channel “Hotel Costes” that was exclusively premiered with The Fader, who declared it “a perfect song for the radio. His flows on the track are all soft and malleable, riding a cavernous bassline here, and bouncing over a piano house riff there.”
JAYLIEN explained to The Fader, “I went to Paris for Paris Fashion Week. It was my first time and the greatest 8 days of my life. In between each show, before every after party, everyone would meet up at Hotel Costes. It’s like the playground for the cool. When I left Paris, I wanted to make a song about how it felt to be there. This song is the soundtrack to my Paris experience.”
To celebrate his debut EP release on July 15th, JAYLIEN will perform a not-to-be-missed set at The Study Hollywood alongside Lauv and other special guests. JAYLIEN recently made his debut live performance last month opening up for The Dream’s Genesis Tour in Los Angeles at The Troubadour followed up by another impressive performance opening up for Jeremih at the Observatory in Orange County.
