I never thought I'd hear a collaboration between indie artist, James Vincent McMorrow, and hip-hop producer, Kenny Beats, but the two have delivered the goods with the single "I Should Go."
Taken from McMorrow's upcoming fifth album, "I Should Go" is a breezy indie meets R&B bundle of joy that shows the strengths of McMorrow's songwriting abilities and Beats' production skills. Speaking about the track, McMorrow explained;
The first lyric of this song is 'I never thought I'd ever need you around / it's hard enough to be me only.' That pretty much sums up the energy. It's not about what we want, it's about what we need. A lot of time I don't think there's a difference between those 2 things. But there is, a big one. I do not need a lot of the things I think I do, and there are other things that feel unimportant but are in fact the foundations that I exist on top of.
I'll genuinely never figure out which is which, I still obsess over dumb shit and I still take so much for granted. To say I'm getting more comfortable with my chaos is probably untrue, doubt I'll ever be comfortable. But I do understand it a little more, and I think I embrace it a little more; embrace the chaos of it all.
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.
This is a fantastic song from an artist who has been consistently putting out quality music for a solid decade, and I for one am looking forward to his new album.
