Higher Love – James Vincent McMorrow

18 Jan

In the UK? Heard of LoveFilm.com? Then you will have probably seen one of their latest adverts, featuring this beautifully crafted song that is done justice by McMorrow:

As you can tell by now, I’m a bit of a sucker for a harrowing delivery, and James Vincent McMorrow certainly does the job. The vocals are achingly delicate, and combine with the soothing piano chords into a powerful piece. Stripping out the background fills present in the original song by Steve Winwood, McMorrow goes back to basics with a voice and some piano keys.

And if that’s not enough reason to like the song, all proceeds from the track sales are going towards Headstrong, an Irish charity for caring for youth’s mental health, as well as being recorded. Having said that, you can download it here, and browse the other songs in the charity album.

As a side note it is always hilarious when you try to lend serious vocals to an awful song:
