Adelaide based singer-songwriter James Kenyon has announced plans to release his brand new album Imagine You Are Driving on the 2nd September this year. The album is a followup to Kenyon’s amazing 2012 debut The North Pole.

“I pitched the idea for the album to [producer] Nick Huggins whist kicking a footy around,” James Kenyon explained. “I wanted to make a soundtrack to an unmade film. The “film” was really just a shifting set of images and songs I’d been thinking about over the past few years – a collection of loosely connected narratives based around a small town or an outer suburban area that reverberated through the songs. It didn’t matter that the plot for the “film” wasn’t locked down, what mattered was that we had an idea of the textures, colours and landscape of the film; enough information to inform the music.”

James Kenyon released the first single from the album, “The Motorbike Song”, back on May and is currently touring it throughout the country – check out the full list of dates and the video for “The Motorbike Song” below:

Thursday 28th July – The Wheatsheaf, Adelaide, SA

    You know that it’s going to be a great day when you wake up and discover a new artist as awesome as James Kenyon. If The Motorbike Song is his first release from his album I certainly can’t wait to hear the rest!
