The singer from New Jersey explained that his main intention was to release them as singles, but due to the situation he decided to share them in the form of a small album with the title “Distraction or despair”. “Hello everyone, with all this uncertainty, I just wanted to start uploading some new things. Just so people can have something to listen to, ”explained the singer.
