James Vincent McMorrow – ‘Gone’

James Vincent McMorrow – ‘Gone’


James Vincent McMorrow has followed up the Kenny Beats co-produced song ‘I Should Go’ and ‘Headlights’ with ‘Gone’ a track co-produced by Paul Epworth and Moon Willis.

‘Gone’ contines that song’s rhythmic sway with reggaeton-lite beats (much like the recent song he produced featuring Denise Chaila, Sorcha Richardson, God Knows, and MuRli) which swirls into a larger synth-assisted chorus.

The song is from his forthcoming album and James says:

“…[the song] is about the disintegration of relationships. 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.” 

“I have more responsibilities, people and expectations around me than ever, and the world is constantly telling me to change and grow as a person. But I don’t feel any more responsible or capable than I did when I was 18 years old. This album is about embracing the idea that it’s okay to not have things figured out.”

“I give less fucks than I used to / I still give a lot of fucks,” James sings in the lyrics.
