The singer talks about what the new record 'Songs for You, Truths for Me' means to him and gives samples on two songs.
On the trail of his successful debut album "Undiscovered", James Morrison is back with his self-explanatory sophomore effort titled "Songs for You, Truths for Me" which was released on September 30. A brand new webisode featuring James and several audio streams from the new album have been given as promotional efforts.
Two of Morrison's tracks from the new album can be heard in sample on the streams below. "You Make It Real" is the first single from the album which has been released in September, while the more upbeat "Nothing Ever Hurt Like You" is slated to be the second single. The webisodes which can be seen here sees James talking about his new effort and how this time it's different.
"It's less playful, more to the point. But I haven't consciously gone for a different sound. With me, it always comes down to the lyric, the melody, and the rest flows from that. But I've definitely tapped into my feelings about life more on this album, rather than writing about characters on the bus (Wonderful World), or whatever. I was just letting stuff flow through me," James shares his personal insight on the album.
Among the collaborators in the album are Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic and Nelly Furtado. The album can be purchased through Amazon.com.
Morrison claimed his fame with his sultry voice when he released the single "You Give Me Something" and he consequently became the best selling British male solo artist in year 2006. He also won Best Male honor at the 2007 BRIT Awards.
