Released: 24 November 2023




Australia Decides star Jude York has had a huge year. The young talent released several new songs, garnered an allegiance of dedicated fans, toured Europe with Dean Lewis and embarked on his first solo tour across Australia. Tying off the year with a nice bow Jude York released his latest single 'Cheerleaders and Jocks'.


In an interview with DNA Magazine Jude revealed that he created 'Cheerleaders and Jocks' as an homage to queerness, lightly poking fun at heteronormativity. The super fun song unpacks the dichotomy between the popular norms of Western culture and the abjectness of the Other.


In the interview with DNA Jude said, “I wrote 'Cheerleaders and Jocks' in response to being rejected by somebody who wanted a more ‘conventional’ life,”


“I realised that I would never want to conform to those white-picket-fence ideals anyway, and that I’m better off without him! Ultimately, I just want everyone to feel like they can be their most honest, whacky, weird selves when they listen to this.”


We cannot wait to see what Jude has in store for 2024!!
