Now James Morrison announces a new 12-date UK Tour this Autumn.
James recently shared a live video to the album’s second single ‘Feels Like The First Time’. Filmed at Manchester’s ornate and historic AlbertHall, it sees Morrison and his band deliver the song in an intimate and impassioned performance. It was directed by Raja Virdi, whose previous credits include Freya Ridings and LewisCapaldi. Arguably this is the track on the album that best captures his soulful take on the Motown and Stax traditions, ‘Feels Like The First Time’ is a shot of sonic sunshine as summer approaches.
As with the rest of the album, ‘Feels Like The First Time’ bristles with an exuberant dynamic which reflects his live shows. Morrison and producer MarkTaylor quickly recorded the core of the album within a week, before spending a second completing the finishing touches – tight backing vocals, strident horns and overdubs.
As a result, ‘You’re Stronger Than You Know’ is the album that JamesMorrison has always wanted to make. Vocally he’s never sounded better, with his honest songwriting inspiring a voice that exudes power, tenderness and experience. His band, meanwhile, hit that life-affirming sweet spot between rambunctious energy and tight musicianship and now you can go and watch him perform it live.
Since first breaking through in 2006, JamesMorrison’s achievements include two #1 albums, five Top10 singles, a BRITAward and sales.
