James Vincent McMorrow has shared another preview of his upcoming album.
He has released his new song "I Should Go," co-produced with Kenny Beats, whose recent work includes collaborations with Vince Staples and Omar Apollo. The swanky new track follows McMorrow's previous single "Headlights," which arrived back in May and marked his first new music in three years.
"The first lyric of this song is, 'I never thought I'd ever need you around / it's hard enough to be me only.' That pretty much sums up the energy. It's not about what we want, it's about what we need. A lot of time I don't think there's a difference between those 2 things. But there is, a big one. I do not need a lot of the things I think I do, and there are other things that feel unimportant but are in fact the foundations that I exist on top of."
He adds: "I fucking adore this song. The second I put the guitar parts together I knew it was going to be something I adored. I sat in a room with Kenny and played him what I had and I think he immediately got it; I had this feeling going into the studio that day that he was the person who could take the idea and elevate it into the space I wanted it to be. I was definitely correct.”
As we previously mentioned, for the upcoming record, McMorrow teamed up with Kenny Beats as well as the likes of Paul Epworth, Lil Silva, Chairlift's Patrick Wimberley and others.
In addition to the new song, it arrives with an accompanying video which follows a young aspiring actor who follows a lead for what he anticipates is a big Hollywood audition. Watch the video below.
