Multi-GRAMMY and Academy Award Winner Jon Batiste has released “It Never Went Away” (Verve Records/Interscope) from the forthcoming documentary American Symphony. The film follows a year in the lives of Batiste and his partner, author-artist Suleika Jaoaud, as Batiste composes a symphonic masterwork while Jaouad undergoes treatment for her cancer. “It Never Went Away,” written by Batiste and GRAMMY winner Dan Wilson, is an expression of the enduring love on display in the film, which debuts in select US theaters today. The film will be available for streaming via Netflix on November 29. Listen to the song HERE.

Says Batiste: ‘“It Never Went Away” details a love that outlasts any condition of the physical world. It probes the question of our mortality, while at the same time speaking to the enduring quality of our deepest callings and desires. That part of us that stands in protest to the ills of the physical world is, in fact, evidence of our perpetual nature.”

Directed and produced by Academy Award® nominee and multiple Emmy Award® winner Matthew Heineman, American Symphony premiered to critical acclaim at the 2023 Telluride Film Festival and will be released by Netflix on Wednesday November 29. Watch the trailer for the film HERE.

World Music Radio draws inspiration from his mission to create community with the power of music. The album received widespread critical acclaim for its universal message and genre-defying sound, hailed by NPR as “a sprawling exploration of what global music can sound like,” and by the Associated Press as “a mesmerizing way to dial into Batiste’s eclectic and wide musicality.” Recent appearances by Batiste in support of World Music Radio include CBS Mornings, The Today Show, Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?, and more.

About American Symphony:
Early in 2022, multi-instrumentalist Jon Batiste finds himself the most celebrated artist of the year with eleven Grammy nominations including Album of the Year. In the midst of that triumph, Jon is immersed in his most ambitious challenge yet: composing “American Symphony”, an original symphony that thrillingly reimagines the classical traditions of the form, bringing together an expansive and inclusive diaspora of music for a performance at storied Carnegie Hall. This extraordinary trajectory is upended, however, when Batiste’s life partner - best-selling author Suleika Jaouad - learns that her long dormant cancer has returned. In the moving and deeply intimate AMERICAN SYMPHONY, Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning director Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land, The First Wave, Retrograde) delivers a portrait of two inimitable artists at a crossroad and a profound meditation on art, love, and the creative process.
