Before he embarks on a summer of festivals, the singer has teamed up with Spotify for a short film around his new album, in which he performs a stripped-down piano version of the album’s title track.
“I feel as if the self imposed restrictions on what it was that I could do and where I could be are off. It’s like the floodgates opened and I just wanted to work and do everything,” James says of the new record.
“It sounds more comfortable, I think, in it’s own skin which I am and I think that that’s nice to hear but also nice to feel. I want to put good out into the world and do the best I can.”
