Starpulse featured artist Jesse Macht has released his new single, "Out of Control," as well as a new video, prior to the debut of his next EP.

"Out of Control" is the first single off Macht's forthcoming EP, Acts of Providence. That EP is scheduled to be released in chapters beginning August 13, with the songs "Heartache" and "Kick and Scream" comprising the first installment.

Although the track is billed as a "departure" for the singer-songwriter and actor, it hasn't changed the high quality of his work. Macht still has the impressive ability to merge an entertaining hook with lyrical substance, the end result being a song that is not only top-notch entertainment but also conveys a meaning to the listener.

In a crowded field of indie singer-songwriters vying for our attention, Macht remains one of those who truly stands out, and one of the best writing today.

You can download "Out of Control" and all of Macht's previous releases by visiting iTunes.

In addition to the single, Macht also released the video for the song "Suitcase Heart," which he co-wrote with Tyler Lyle. You can watch that video below.

Macht's music has appeared in films and television series, including Style Network's Giuliana & Bill, and he has also composed pieces for national campaigns including MTV, FOX and Nickelodeon.
