Americana Highways present this premiere of the Jensen Sisters’ song “Good For You” (written by Zak Norton) from their forthcoming album Yellow Frames. Yellow Frames was produced by Jay Ernest Kalk, Jonathon TeBeest, and Bronson Bergeson; recorded and mixed by Jonathon TeBeest at Square Studios; and mastered by Greg Reierson at Rare Form Mastering.
“Good For You” is Kendra Jensen and Kansas Jensen on vocals; Jay Ernest Kalk on backing vocals; Jonathon TeBeest on drums and percussion; Jay Ernest Kalk on bass; Bronson Bergeson on acoustic, electric and steel guitar; Alexander Berg on organ and piano; Zachary Scanlan on fiddle; Harold Tremblay on harmonics, and Lawrence Hearn on synthesizer.
In a song of bravery and valor, the Jensen Sisters flaunt their strengths in this one: power, rhythms, and swagger vocals. Listen and see.
Although we didn’t have a hand in writing “Good for You” it was the last song we finalized for the record. Our friend Zak Norton heard through the grapevine that we were in the studio recording and called us up one day. He said something along the lines of “I have this song I think you would like. It’s definitely not meant to be sung by me.”
From the first time we heard it we knew it was something we had to cut. We instantly fell in love with the message of knowing your worth. In music, we feel like it’s very easy for women’s voices to get distorted. A lot of times we’re made out to be these fragile, heartbroken creatures begging for the guy to come back, but that isn’t always the case. Sometimes we’re the ones pushing him out the door.
This song is for anyone who needs reminding just how valuable they are. We hope it gives people in bad situations the courage to stand up and say, “you know what, I don’t have to put up with this”. — the Jensen Sisters
