Using therapeutic tactics as tools for emotional manipulation: Jack Tracy’s new track
Jack Tracy presents a moody blue-eyed soul number in “The Feels,” his brand-new track from his soon-to-be released Love Yah EP.
“The song is about a relationship that is being held together by the one thing that still works in it: the incredible sex,” the artist explains. Written and produced by Tracy, he admits he drew inspiration for “The Feels” from his last relationship. “In my experience, I have come to realize that most people lie, constantly and with abandon. They lie to get what they want, or to get a hit of dopamine, and never really think about how they impact others.”

“The song’s title is something my ex would say to me when I was upset about something” Tracy continues. “‘And how does that feel?’ he would ask. For a long time, I considered him to be introspective and mindful. Over time I realized he used therapeutic tactics as tools for emotional manipulation. Once I would bring up something that I was unhappy with, he’d pivot the conversation to question how I felt by it. He’d then show sympathy for the feeling but give no apology. We would then move on with no actual discussion or changes. It was a way for him to acknowledge my feelings but not have to engage in any reflection on why I felt that way because he was always beyond reproach.”
“The Feels” follows Tracy’s previous release, the title track of his EP that releases April 14.
Jack’s Tracy’s “The Feels” is being distributed independently and is available on Apple Music, Spotify and all digital platforms. Its video will be available on Vimeo and YouTube.
