"1000×" (pronounced "a thousand times") is a single by Australian singer-songwriter Jarryd James featuring New Zealand indie pop group, Broods. It was released on 17 June 2016.[1]

Background and recording[edit]

Speaking to Matt and Alex on Triple J in June 2016, James explained "It's the first song I wrote when I first started with working with Joel Little. He was still living in New Zealand... so I went over to Auckland and spent half a day and we came up with this song."[2] James explained that he wasn't sure on the track and it was excluded from his album Thirty One. Broods vocalist Georgia Nott said; "I still remember the first time I heard Jarryd sing and I almost cried... I'm obsessed with love songs and got really attached to it and ended up walking down the aisle to the demo."[3]

The two decided to get Nott to sing on it too and make it a 'duet' and her vocals were added in January 2016.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Project U said: "I'm careful with the word 'perfect', but Jarryd James has made the year's finest ballad "[5]

Thomas Bleach said: "'1000x' is a beautifully produced, moody ballad that perfectly allows Jarryd and Georgia's vocals to harmonise together making this one lush duet."[6]
