James Thomson returns with ‘Desire’, his wonderful new single from a forthcoming album. The song drifts along on a warm current of air that sounds like it’s a southern cousin to the Tulsa sound – smooth and hypnotic. It’s a bit more direct sounding than some of Thomson’s previous releases and as always those melodies really hit the spot beautifully. One hell of a chorus too. Backing vocals come courtesy of Tracy McNeil and extra guitar sweetness from Sean McMahon, complementing the always sublime playing of Marty Burke.
You can catch him launching the single tomorrow night at The Stag & Hunter in Newcastle with The High Andies, plus Thomson’s just been added to the full lineup for the Hunter Valley, NSW Dashville Skyline festival on the October long weekend.
