James Vincent McMorrow

New Track ‘You Know’

Post Tropical Deluxe Album Release

LIVE: European & US Tour (Shepherds Bush Empire, October 5)

Praise for James’ second album, ‘Post Tropical’

““So sonically audacious, visually stunning and meticulously modern as to recall Kanye West” The Times *****

“Profound and unexpected…a singular style that barely sounds as if it’s from this world” Mojo ****

“With its deliberate, languorous pleasures, this is an album to live with, settle with and be crisply rejuvenated by” Pitchfork

“A richly textured, hip-hop influenced odyssey” Esquire


James Vincent McMorrow has premiered a brand new song, ‘You Know’, the latest piece of new material following critically-acclaimed second record ‘Post Tropical’ along with the announcement of a deluxe version of the album which will include previously unreleased material, remixes and live tracks being released this autumn. Released in January, ‘Post Tropical’ has since been made Album Of The Week at Radio 1 and 6Music, was voted an album of the year by readers of The Guardian, and has seen a sold-out European tour (including a London show at the Barbican). Following slots at Latitude, Coachella and Sydney Opera House (which he sold out twice), McMorrow headlines Shepherds Bush Empire on October 5 as part of an extensive European and US run of dates heading into the end of this year. James also made a recent guest appearance at Duke Dumont’s debut live show at London’s Oslo (the two have recently collaborated in the studio).

Both ethereal and warm, soulful but still, ‘You Know’ is a tribute to McMorrow’s life-long love of classic hip-hop and R&B, which can be felt across early singles ‘Cavalier’ and ‘Gold’, and contribute to the general reinvention of ‘Post Tropical’. The album title, much like the idiosyncratic ‘You Know’, is deliberately “warm and familiar, but there’s something there that’s maybe not quite what you think it is.”

A deluxe edition of Post Tropical will be released digitally on 10th November, which will include the full standard album plus the following bonus material:

1.     When I Leave (bonus track)

2.     You Know (bonus track)

3.     New Romancers Ft. Moors (bonus track)

4.     Red Dust (live / solo version)

5.     All Points (live / solo version)

6.     Cavalier (1975 remix)

7.     Cavalier (DPAT remix)

8.     Glacier (Atu remix)

Having since been released to widespread acclaim, ‘Post Tropical’ follows James Vincent McMorrow’s platinum-selling debut album, ‘Early in the Morning’ – which also reached number 1 in Ireland, picked up a Choice Music Prize nomination, and led to breakout hit ‘Higher Love’. ‘Post Tropical’, however, was recorded in just three weeks on a pecan farm half a mile from the Mexican border (which the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House and Animal Collective have all called home). James recently uploaded some new works-in-progress (notably the Hype-Machine-topping ‘When I Leave’), suggesting that – whatever ‘Post Tropical’ actually is – there might just be more on the way.
