Following his latest critically-acclaimed release “Him.Her“, English alternative singer/songwriter James Gillespie further stakes his claim as an undeniable voice in music. He returns once again and doesn’t disappoint with his fresh new track “Beyond Today“.
With over 39M total streams and counting, “Beyond Today” continues his remarkable story. Driven by the honest guitar chords and a moving hook, James’ newest release is a deeply confessional, searing account of vulnerability and purely cathartic expression.
Speaking on the track, James states: “Sometimes when life is at its darkest it’s hard to know who you are. Who to turn to when you need someone. The darker the times the darker I become. It’s hard to see what’s right or wrong when there is no light in sight. And it becomes impossible to see beyond today.”
Shot in Paris by director Bella Howard, the monochrome video follows Gillespie as he wanders the French capital, passing the various landmarks and looking pretty downcast while he does so, which is probably the price of visiting such a romantic city alone.
James is currently working and co-producing with well established and seasoned names in the industry, aiding his emergence as one of the most interesting and versatile artists around. Having sold out his debut headline London show at O’Meara, this will continue the intrigue around this unorthodox rising artist.
