After confirming earlier this month he's releasing two new albums, James Vincent McMorrow on Wednesday unveiled a new song called "Hurricane."

The moving new track, which hears McMorrow's own riveting voice accompanied by gripping choral vocals, is the latest ahead of The Less I Knew, which is out on June 24, followed by Heavyweight Champion of Dublin 8, out later this fall.

"Even before the last two years I think I’d lost sense of why I do the things I do," says McMorrow. "I lost the thread of what I wanted to be and what I wanted to say. The Less I Knew, for me, is about getting that back. It’s about going easier on yourself, realising the entire world is putting on a show, no one is immune to pressure. We contort ourselves in order to convince ourselves things are fine, or things can get better. For me, doing that meant I was missing, I had missed so many incredible things as they were happening."
