Jason Castro’s New Song “It Matters To Me” – Tweet To Hear It!

Jason Castro’s got a new song streaming on his website, and all you have to do is tweet to hear it.

It’s called, “It Matters To Me” and I like it very very much.   Better than the jaunty single, “Let’s Just Fall In Love”, for sure.   I suggest y’all check it out.

  1. I put this in the mediabase thread but it’s more appropriate here.

    I was Christmas shopping today and heard Jason’s single in Hollister! It was being played at Hollister volume (translation – louder than the human ear can stand) but it fit right in with the rest of the music being played in the store. Very cool. Now I’ll have to go listen to this new song. Yay Jason!

  2. I’m always interested in new tactics for promotion, and I remember Jason fondly but. No, won’t click on a deal where I have to tweet a link to my followers *in order to hear the song*. Won’t send it to others if I haven’t heard it. For all I know, it’s great. Will be interested to see if this works.

  3. LOL, maturin. I love this song. Not really into the marketing aspect either, so I just deleted the tweet. I hate being forced to do something like that, although I heart Jason on this tune. His voice is just so beautiful to me.

    Well, every time I take a silly Facebook or Twitter quiz, it sends a message to all of my friends/followers, so why not let people know that an artist I like has a new song out? Even if I don’t like the song, some of them might.

    It’s a pretty ballad, which is what he was most successful with on Idol, so hopefully it’ll click with radio listeners. Seems like breakthrough songs tend to be ballads. Carolina Liar, Parachute, and The Script all had their first mainstream hits with ballads this year. I like it well enough, but I hope there’s also more interesting songs on the album. I hope he gets a video for this song.

  5. Hi jersey – I was shopping on Thursday at Hollister and heard the very same thing! I was soooo excited to hear Jason’s music in this popular store!

    maturin, I don’t typically like these types of promos either, but this one isn’t as bad as others where you need to add a follower or other crazy thing. The song is absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait for his CD!

  6. I don’t know what Hollister is ? But my Best Buy loves Blake’s Sad Song. It’s funny, I’ve heard it there twice in the last three visits.

    I used to hear Taylor Hicks in CVS, but I figured there was a fan who worked there. Maybe not!

  7. Isn’t Hollister the store that has the live cam on Huntington Beach in it’s stores??? If so, thought it was cute that the pic of Jason has the ocean behind him.

  8. Love this song. he sang it when I saw him at The Grove, in Hollywood in August. It was by far, my favorite!

  9. Just as an FYI, I don’t think this is necessarily meant to be the new single. Maybe it’s in the running and this is Atlantic’s way of testing it out, but nothing has said yet far. If anything I get the impression that That’s What I’m Here For might be the 2nd single.

    Also if anybody wants to get an idea of the song before tweeting anything, check out youtube. Not for the recorded version, but Jason’s performed this song live plenty so I’m sure there are tons of videos.

  10. I’m also not one to jump through hoops to listen to a song. If I believe in somebody/something, I have no problem retweeting it (if need be). I just don’t think I should be coerced into doing so before I’ve decided. I’m sure I’ll be able to listen to it without all the caveats soon enough.

  11. Anyway to hear the song before tweeting it? Or am i just being a stick in the mud fart? I’m sure it’s nice . . .

  12. Yes, iluvai, Hollister is the store with the live cam on Huntington Beach.

    PJ, Hollister is a “surfer dude” kind of store, jeans, t shirts, sweatshirts – you see teens/twenty somethings wearing shirts all the time that say “Hollister” across them. The store is very dark, and plays very loud music! What I won’t do for my kids!

    No, you’re not! I’m not jumping through any hoops to hear it either.

  14. I already posted there are many live versions of this song on youtube if anyone wants to hear it.

  15. I love the first single too, but this one is very lyrical and nice, Great job mr. Castro! Can’t wait for the album to drop

  16. Mmmm. I really, really like this song!
    (…and yes, you could just delete the tweet afterward.)

  17. It sounds like this will be a popular choice for Jason’s next song. I can’t wait until his CD is released!

  18. Yes, iluvai, Hollister is the store with the live cam on Huntington Beach.

    Well you are an awesome parent! Yikes… I’ve been there with my daughter and it totally scares me…I’m always dying to to get out into the mall. I think I can take like 3 minutes or so. LOL

  19. Yes, iluvai, Hollister is the store with the live cam on Huntington Beach.

    Okay, this is very funny, believe it if you want. But my step sister, whom I adore, just sent me a Christmas card of her kids. The girl is like 9 and the boy is like 6. They live in Huntington Beach. The kids look like they have hair a la Jason Castro. And Angie if you recognize me, your kids are beautiful. lol

  20. Beautiful song! I wouldn’t mind if this will be the 2nd single. For me, either this song or his duet with Serena Ryder will be good for the next single. I’m gonna love his album! Can’t wait!

  21. I’m looking forward to hearing the Serena Ryder duet (only heard that little snippet of it on his website). Love Serena Ryder:)

  22. This guys cd is stacked with great songs like this. He really is a talented writer, has a solid head on his shoulders. Picked some great people to work with. Very excited for the release of his album.

  23. i just listened to it…beautiful…too bad I couldn’t help Jason with the twitter thing…I have an account, but no friends on there..hahah…facebook has a strangle hold in my country.

  24. I think the song is beautiful but I’d tweet it anyway. Not a big deal.

  25. It’s really awesome to hear that about Hollister. That means that they will probably sell the CD. At the check-out counter in the stores they have maybe 20 CDs for sale. It’s usually a hip, somewhat obscure (in other words, not Top40) collection of alternative music. It’s a big deal so let’s hope that his CD shows up there. It’s a good sign that they are playing his music already.

  26. I enjoyed Jason’s single and thought it was a lot of fun.
    But I really like this one so much more and it is more like what I was looking for from him.
    And I am very happy that Jason is not lost in a lot of production and orchestration.
    I’m looking forward to the cd and seeing him on tour.

  27. I refuse to “tweet” for anyone, let alone this twit. Thanks for the youtube link, just. I think the first “single” was better than this one.

  28. I had found in the past that on Jason links people were never mean, he seems to be such a happy soul and how can you be mean to him, sigh – not so today I guess. I have played this over and over since yesterday, I love Jasons tone and spirit in this song

  29. Wow this is a really good song! Didn’t like Jason at all on Idol but have really liked his music since then and will buy the CD when it comes out. Genius idea with Hollister although I can’t even take one step into that dark over-cologned hell hole. Everytime my friends and I go to the mall I go do something else while they go there and Ambercrombie lol

  30. the song is fantastic & he sounds great!

    @miss_marisa – hate abercrombie, but love hollister, which has a beautiful cloudy-beach-weather-clothes style … plus AC is 3X as expensive as HL.

  31. That YouTube has been taken down–it was gone when I looked. But if you search for it, there are a number of live versions on YouTube.
