Nothing More have premiered their new music for Jenny over at Billboard. The video raises awareness for mental illness. View the video and the story behind the song below.
“The story of ‘Jenny’ is an ongoing struggle that my family and I are battling with,” explains Hawkins. “It continues to be one of the most confusing situations I’ve ever had to navigate in life. The topic is something that I think many of us can relate to, but not many of us talk about … We all know a ‘Jenny,’ whether it is a family member or a friend.”
“My sister is dealing with this day to day, and it’s not only affecting her, but our entire family. It affects every minute of every day,” adds Hawkins. “It also affects the tax payer in all these different ways with how she’s in and out of the system with hospitals and jails. “It’s very tricky and very strange when people have something wrong with their brain. When someone’s in a wheelchair, everyone in the room will open the door for them and treat them differently. But if someone has something wrong with their brain, [other people] immediately just think they’re an asshole.” – Jonny Hawkins
