Australian artist and activist Jack River (aka Holly Rankin) has shared new single “Nothing Has Changed” via Nettwerk. The single was co-written and produced with Joel Quartermain (G Flip, Client Liaison, Merci, Mercy) and Edwin White (Vance Joy, Amy Shark).

Jack River comments:

I wrote ‘Nothing Has Changed’ after playing my first show back after the pandemic at Bass in the Grass, in Australia. I was scared that everything might have changed, but when I returned, everything was in its place, we were all there – screaming and yelling and singing together, just like we used to, and just like we will for years to come.

“Nothing Has Changed” also marks Holly Rankin’s announcement that she will be taking a break over the holidays to welcome her first child into the world.

She adds:

All in all, the journey of pregnancy, and the anticipation of motherhood has given me a mandate to slow down for the summer (winter in the US) and into real life, whatever that is about to be. I’m taking a couple months off socials and this world, to make another world of my own, a world just for me and my family and my dog that can’t be streamed or liked or shared.

The new single follows “Real Life,” an upbeat summer jam that was Produced by frequent collaborator Xavier Dunn and The BelligerentsLewis Stephenson.
