JoJo announces ‘Trying Not To Think About It’

Album arrives Oct 1st

GRAMMY Award-winning singer and songwriter JoJo is set to return with a new capsule collection titled Trying Not To Think About It, arriving October 1st via Warner Records. The first track and video from the collection, “Worst (I Assume),” will be released this Friday, August 20th at midnight ET/9pm PT.

Immediately following the release, JoJo will embark on a six-date run of intimate live shows across Boston, NYC, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Nashville & Los Angeles to celebrate and share the album with her fans across the country. Award winning singer/songwriter Tiara Thomas will open on all dates. Tickets will go on sale Friday, August 20th at 10 am local time via JoJo’s website.

The 12-track EP is a musical expression of her continued honesty, vulnerability and transparency around mental health, tackling the different shades of it – including anxiety, depression, negative thoughts, relationship self-sabotage, and emotional immaturity.

Trying Not To Think About It is a result of feeling sooooo lost, scared, and confused at the end of 2020 – desperate to believe in/find my light once again. Sometimes we feel like we’re the only ones. But we NEVER are alone in our darkness,” JoJo says of the project. “If you listen, I hope this project makes you feel seen, validated, not crazy, and hopeful that you won’t feel bad forever. You’re more in control than you think. Guys – I am overwhelmed with gratitude to perform these new songs + some of your faves on 6 intimate, very, very special LIVE TOUR dates in October. I can’t wait to see you. And FEEL you.“

In May 2020, JoJo’s fourth studio album Good to Know debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B Albums Chart and earned widespread global acclaim.
