The first single from William Fitzsimmons’ upcoming album Pittsburgh to be released is the title track. Take a listen to “Pittsburgh” below:
Fitzsimmons says Pittsburgh could be his most personal album yet. “My grandmother, Virginia, died October 15, 2014,” he explains. “She was born and raised in the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The city of my youth. She gave the gift of music to my mother, and, from my mother, was thus passed to me. In that same month I returned home for three days to celebrate Virginia’s life, mourn her passing, and help to lay her body to rest. These seven songs were born from those three days and are in memoriam to her passing and in remembrance of the city we shared. She will be perpetually missed. Until the day we meet again.”
Pittsburgh is due for release on the 18th May.
