Go solo James on song af­ter la­bel ‘blow’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

JAMES Mor­ri­son says it was a “blow” when he was dropped by his record la­bel, but now sees the set­back as “more pos­i­tive than neg­a­tive”.

The singer, 34, shot to fame with hits You Give Me Some­thing and Bro­ken Strings.

But af­ter re­leas­ing four stu­dio al­bums with Uni­ver­sal Mu­sic, in­clud­ing 2015’s Higher Than Here, he was dropped from the la­bel.

He is now re­leas­ing new record You’re Stronger Than You Know on his own la­bel, Stan­ley Park Records.

James (above) told BBC Break­fast: “It’s more pos­i­tive to me than neg­a­tive.

“At the start it was a bit of a blow, but now I’m do­ing it my­self and I feel a bit more con­fi­dent in the space that I’m in.

“I feel I’m be­ing sup­ported a lit­tle bit more in the right way as an artist, so that in turn helped me be more creative.”
