Los Angeles based pop duo Jack & Jack have announced their debut album A Good Friend Is Nice, set for release on January 11, 2019. The album will include the duo’s new single “No One Compares To You,” as well as their hit collaboration “Rise” with multi-platinum artist and producer Jonas Blue. A Good Friend Is Nice is now available for pre-order HERE!
The duo has also announced an upcoming 2019 European tour for February and March ahead of their 25-date North American tour in April and May.
Commencing on February 21st at Amsterdam’s Melkweg Max and taking in dates in Brussels, Paris, Milan, Zurich, Cologne, Berlin, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo, the UK and Ireland leg kicks-off at Heaven in London on March 7th, before going to Birmingham Institute 2 (March 8th), Manchester Academy 3 (March 9th) and then culminating with a show at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on March 11th. Tickets go on sale on Friday November 9th at www.jackandjackofficial.com/tour.
The tour follows their energetic, sold-out show at London’s Bush Hall in March and their 31-city headline US tour last year which featured support from boyband PRETTYMUCH on select dates.
Last month, Jack & Jack released their new single “No One Compares To You” via Island Records. The song was written by Michael Matosic (Lauv), Jake Torrey (Kiiara, PRETTYMUCH) and TMS (Dua Lipa, Maroon 5, G-Eazy) and produced by TMS and Jussi (Bebe Rexha).

“No One Compares To You” follows on the heels of Jack & Jack’s hit collaboration “Rise” with multiplatinum-artist and producer Jonas Blue that has surpassed over half a billion streams. They recently performed the single at the MTV EMAs, the BBC Teen Awards and on ITV1’s Jonathan Ross Show.
Earlier this year, Jack & Jack impacted Top 40 radio for the first time with their hit single “Beg.” The track was written by singer-songwriter Lauv and has surpassed over 60 million streams. The song also notably caught the eye of Z100’s Elvis Duran, who chose the duo as his January 2018 “Artist of the Month” on NBC’s TODAY.
The duo’s debut Island Records EP GONE, which was released last year, immediately hit the Top 10 iTunes Pop Chart in over 15 territories. Previous to this, Jack & Jack’s indie EP Calibraska (whose title fuses their native Nebraska and their current home base of Los Angeles) became something of an under-the-radar phenomenon in 2015. It crashed multiple charts, landing at #1 on iTunes Overall Top Albums chart, #3 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart, and #12 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Their 11 singles have netted over 2 million collective sales and over 100 million music streams.
