James Vincent McMorrow has unveiled his new single Gone, worked on with Paul Epworth and Moon Willis.
“Gone is about the disintegration of relationships,” he says. “In my case, the disintegration of my relationship with myself. No song or lyric I’ve ever written has come as close to this one at capturing how I feel about life, how I hear it, my fear of it, my obsession with it, my belligerent belief that I can control it, my quiet acknowledgment in the middle of the night that I will never control a single thing.”
“And there’s nothing wrong with any of it. There’s absolute beauty in embracing the chaos and the decay. I know I was exhausted pretending everything was all right.”
It’s another fresh one for McMorrow’s new home of RCA, immediately following I Should Go – in turn a collaboration with another big name producer, Kenny Beats.
