We Move marks a breathtaking and radical push forward for Irish artist James Vincent McMorrow, in what is his most expensive and ambitious work to date. Unlike his previous releases, We Move was written in constant transition. In early 2015, McMorrow decamped to Los Angeles for 4 surreal months, wanting to experience something totally alien to any way he’d ever worked before. It was in those 4 months that the new songs began to xrystalize and come squarely into view, among other revelations. The album’s backbone was formed by three key producers that McMorrow met during his travels who fully understood what he was trying to achieve.
Earlier this year, his songs surpassed 100 million streams, his cover of “Wicked Games” was used in HBO’s Game of Thrones season 6 trailer. The Dublin-born singer/songwriter rose to fame upon the release of his platinum debut album Early in The Morning, reaching #1 in his home country of Ireland, silver status in the UK, and earning a Choice Music Prize and EBBA award nomination in the process.
Sophomore album Post Tropical secured his place as a globally recognized musician, garnering a second nomination for the Choice Music Prize. It also led to multiple sold out tours across the world. While touring for Post Tropical, McMorrow appeared at Cochella, Electric Picnic, Edmonton Folk Festival, Gentlemen of the Road (Mumford & Sons), Latitude, and Lowlands Festival, among others.
