NEW TUNE: “Don’t Let Me Get Me” by James Gillespie

james-gillespie artwork.jpgFollowing one of the the most exciting debuts of the year with “What You Do” (over 5M streams on Spotify and counting) James Gillespie now comes forth with the unlikeliest and gorgeous of second releases, a stripped-back rendition of P!nk’s “Don’t Let Me Get Me”.

Bringing his already-recognisable vocal – that rare juxtaposition of rich and raw – to a pop classic, James cements his ability to turn anything he touches into a work of burnished, human beauty. Already a remarkably candid and lyrically emotive track, James’ lingering timings, subtle harmonies and melodic switches underlines his growing trademark of being able to surprise and refresh his listeners. It was immediately apparent on his debut, and now with this arguably trickier second strike, Gillespie shows that he’s an emerging star with the invention and talent to go the distance.
