NEW MUSIC: JAMES MORRISON | DON'T MESS WITH LOVE

After announcing details of a ‘Greatest Hits’ tour that commences in March 2022, James Morrison is excited to release his first-ever "Greatest Hits" album, due out on February 11th, 2022. Ahead of the release, he has shared a new single, "Don’t Mess With Love," one of two new songs that appear on the collection and already released "Who’s Gonna Love Me Now?" In a twist on the ‘Greatest Hits’ format, James Morrison returned to the studio with his long-term producer Mark Taylor to record new versions of thirteen of his classic songs alongside his regular live band. James calls on fifteen years of experience to breathe fresh life into the songs. Not only has his voice matured – with a richer, deeper, more soulful timbre – but his live performances have uncovered other layers to the material, in many cases emphasizing different elements to the original recordings. And just like fans will find their interpretations of his lyrics changing as time passes, so does James. He was just 21-years-old when he first hit the limelight, and he has experienced so much in the intervening years: a long-term relationship, children, the loss of family and friends, substantial career highs, and moments of self-doubt. All of those things have inspired him – sometimes directly, others subliminally – to interpret his original lyrics in new ways, and he’s never sounded better as a result.
