Go solo James on song after label ‘blow’
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.”
