‘Hey Baby’ was played at previous set’s of theirs from Marseille to Glastonbury.

Jordan describes ‘Hey Baby’ as a “fun club track that doesn't take itself seriously! I've been playing it in clubs and festivals for the last year and it's always gone down a treat”.
Their second single ‘I Had the Best of Times’ has a different energy compared to ‘Hey Baby’ as it was made over some reflective time back in December 2021
Speaking on Instagram about ‘Always Been / First Time Back’, I. JORDAN said: "Each of these singles show a different part of me and the styles of music I’ve been making over the last year and a bit. Both these two tracks were started during lockdown, dreaming of happier and more hopeful times, and refined while being back on the road.
"It’s been so fun playing them since being back and I’m v happy to finally get them out in the world!" they said.
In May, Jordan made their official name change to I. JORDAN saying: “Thanks to everyone who’s been an incredible support during this change over period, to everyone who’s been calling me Jordan without prompt (it’s meant a lot!) and to my team for making this transition as seamless as possible,” they said.
