An exclusive early release just for CrooksandLiars - Occupy America: JENNIE ARNAU’s “Better Luck Next Time” is featured on Occupy This Album scheduled for a 5/15 release through Sony Music with all proceeds from the album going directly to the Occupy Wall Street movement. “Better Luck Next Time” is the follow-up single to Jennie’s 2010 release Chasing Giants (MRI) which was praised by Rolling Stone’s Joe Levy as “her most fully realized set of songs yet. If you care about the struggle for love and happiness - and who among us doesn't? -- This one's for you.”

After being inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement and other worldwide protests and upheavals including those in Egypt, Syria, Greece and Italy to name a few, Jennie approached this track with a sense of urgency. “I immersed myself in listening to protest and folk singers of the past and present including Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Ani DiFranco and Steve Earle and they emboldened me to write ‘Better Luck Next Time’. I was actually nervous as I didn’t want to compare myself to such important names but I think I’ve written a song that is uniquely my own and contemporary”.

“I’m really so proud of this song,” says Jennie “I’ve tried a lyrical style that’s out-of-the box for me and really hope I can make a small difference with the song somewhere around the world”.

The Occupy This Album is available for pre-order now for just $9.99.
