The new single, which lyrically explores the heartbreaking theme of loss, is delicate, raw, acoustic-lead and one of James’ most emotional songs to date.

The album’s first single arrived in the shape of the upbeat banger ‘Beside You’. Directed by Craig Bingham, the video evokes memories of James’ past. Meeting versions of himself throughout his life, the video sees James embrace the characters of his past self, as he moves forward. Watch the video for ‘Beside You’ HERE.
