MP3 of the Day #853: James Vincent McMorrow

By on Friday, 29th August 2014 at 10:00 am

Irish artist James Vincent McMorrow released the critically acclaimed ‘Post Tropical’ album in January, but since then, no new music from the singer/songwriter had emerged. Until this week. The press sheet for one-off song ‘When I Leave’ says it was written by McMorrow during the summer months of traveling, “on the floors of festival dressing rooms, in hotels, and whilst James waited for everyone to fall asleep in the back of the bus”. McMorrow explains further: “”hen I was in college, I’d go out a lot, but I wasn’t the guy that was the centre of everyone’s attention. But just because you’re standing in the corner, it doesn’t mean that you don’t love to dance. That’s what ‘When I Leave’ is about, I guess – dance like no one’s watching.”

Have a listen to the new song in the Soundcloud widget below. Like it? It’s yours for the taking absolutely free through this link. Catch McMorrow live at Shepherds Bush Empire on the 5th of October; tickets are on sale now.
