Though Jared Evan‘s brief stint at Interscope didn’t result in the release of an LP, it did yield some quality songs—several of which we’ve already featured in the Booth. Today, the longtime reader fave dusts off another jam from that period of his career. Better Now finds the multi-talented Brooklynite saying bittersweet goodbyes to a woman in his life. iLLfactor mans the mixing boards, pairing delicate keys with muscular boom-bap percussion. While this poignant cut is just a loosie, those feeling it will be happy to hear that Evan is currently working on an official debut album. Watch our pages for more info on the project, which currently lacks both a title and a drop date.
