The 19-year-old singer recently premiered the lead single right here on JJJ and his music has been on our rotation ever since!
“This EP is so important to me. I want people to hear this and say, ‘Holy —-,’” Alec told us. “And I know that they will. This record is me trying to make a mark of who I want to be as an artist. My manager Sarah Nagourney and I – although we have also become like songwriting partners – have written over 40 songs, four that were used for this record. My producer, Robbie Guariglia, also co-wrote two out of the four songs on the EP.”
He added, “The EP was recorded in Robbie G‘s studio in Brooklyn. Eight hour days, every day, for two months straight. I honestly could not have had a better team behind me working to make this record. One of the most enjoyable times of my life.”
Take a listen to the four tracks below, and be sure to pre-order the EP now before it comes out tomorrow, February 3!

“‘Whole Again’ is about meeting that person who is the perfect picture of everything you could ever ask for.”
“Lost In Translation”
“‘Lost In Translation’ is about never being able to get it right.”
“‘Bleecker Street’ is the second single off the EP. The song to me is about the feeling of coming home, and remembering the things that matter the most. The verse’s talk about a relationship that is on the verge of ending. The character in the song is…crushed. Then, once you get to the chorus, what he’s basically saying is ‘Wow, I can’t believe I wasted all that time being broken up about someone when everything I need is home.’ Friends, family, music. It’s all on Bleecker Street. That’s what the song is about to me. You can translate it into anyway you want. ‘Home’ or ‘Bleecker Street’ can be anything for you.”
“Heart Of Gold”
“‘Heart Of Gold’ is about being head over heels for a friend that you just KNOW you were meant to be.”
