'Balanced on a Wire' is the latest track to be shared from my upcoming album 'Storm Damage'.
Premiered this morning on Lauren Laverne's BBC 6 Music morning show, it is accompanied by a performance video filmed in RAK Studio 2 in London where the album was recorded.
My kids were teenagers leaving home for the first time when I wrote this song. I was moved by their mixture of anxiety and determination. It reminded me of being nineteen myself, standing on the edge of something new, how you cope, how you need to open up when the other half of you is screaming 'no'. Perhaps that feeling never really leaves us.
The video - first shown earlier today on New York music and culture website Black Book - is directed by photographer and film maker, Edward Bishop, who has documented much of my work since 2014.
I'm excited to return to Japan in April. The perfect time for cherry blossom, of course. Two shows in Tokyo and Osaka. I really cherish the support from my Japanese friends, ever since the affection they bestowed on North Marine Drive. Tickets on sale on Nov 16. Thanks, all.
On Tuesday November 19 I will be performing a special invitation-only live show at a small low-key venue in London - Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston - for just friends and fans. I'll be showcasing songs from my upcoming new album, Storm Damage with musicians from the recording session and probably throwing in a few older songs too. The venue has a bar at street level and a cosy basement live room.
You can win a pair of tickets for this event. Invitation only. No tickets on sale to general public.
