Last month, James Vincent McMorrow dropped his new track “I Should Go,” co-produced with Kenny Beats (Vince Staples, Denzel Curry, Idles). Since then, the track has been remixed and reimagined as an upbeat club song by GRAMMY nominated DJ and producer Nic Fanciulli and today, McMorrow shares the song in its purest form – a stripped-down acoustic plea.
The tracks, along with the earlier released single “Headlights,” mark the first new music McMorrow has released in some time and his first for new U.S. Label home RCA. James Vincent McMorrow is a platinum-selling artist who has independently clocked over 750 million streams and seen his music travel everywhere from Drake’s Views to Game Of Thrones. “I Should Go” acts as a further window into the world of McMorrow’s upcoming fifth studio album. Speaking on “I Should Go,” McMorrow says “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.”
An always-unpredictable, multifaceted talent, over the last decade, James Vincent McMorrow has established himself as an artist of signature style. On his own intuitive terms, James’ bigger-picture approach to each project may vary, but the idea of doing exactly what you need to do, and at exactly the right time, remains a constant. He has emerged as that rare modern act as integral to the worlds of hip-hop and texturedR&B as he is the singer-songwriter roots of his early days. Behind McMorrow’s instantly-identifiable voice was a heartfelt, sometimes-cryptic storyteller – who, on his new music, also appears to have come to understand himself on a deeper level.
McMorrow most recently visited the States this past Fall, playing thrilling stripped back sets in intimate settings in both NYC and LA. Stay tuned for news about his North American touring plans.
