Caleb Nichols - Jerome - single & video out now
Caleb Nichols' new video and single for "Jerome" is out now! The track is one of several songs on the album that really leans into the Mr. Mustard narrative. More than any song, this one upcycles the lyrics of the Beatles song "Mean Mr. Mustard" to tell more of Mr. Mustard's origin story. Told from Mr. Mustard's perspective, the song features Ramon (Mustard) singing to Jerome in order to try and make sense of all the hurt he feels after being ghosted. "My sister took me out/ to gaze upon the queen/ that was the furthest I had been/ I thought that you might help me change my little scene/ now I've lost my certainty" sings a distraught Ramon.

The video is a campy romp, featuring a house party full of ghosts drinking, playing cards, dancing, drinking some more, cavorting on couches, and ultimately encircling and freaking out a crazed Mr. Mustard, who's just discovered his boyfriend making out with none other than his own sister, Polythene Pam! In some ways "Jerome" is a prequel to our previous single/video "Ramon" which shows Jerome splitting town, but not quite being able to shake his feelings for Ramon.
