Jagwar Twin is the musical persona of singer, songwriter, producer, and storyteller Roy English. He’s back with an exhilarating new single called “All My Friends.” This stylish indie-rock anthem draws inspiration from the profound connections forged during his time on the road. English’s latest full-length album was produced by the Grammy-nominated Matthew Pauling (Twenty One Pilots and 5 Seconds of Summer) and is available now.
“All My Friends” delves into the realities of our existence. English poignantly reflects, “The world is always ending and it’s always beginning. We’re having this experience flying through space on this rock we call home. ‘All My Friends’ is about the terror and the beauty of the fact that we’re all here on Earth, and it’s all of us or none of us.”
