Jim McAteer – New Double A Single Fri – 9th April
The time has come when we sense light at the end of the tunnel and try to imagine all the things we want to do. But how are we going to be able to do everything we want to?
How will we cope with “the everything thing”? It’s a question that lovable Glasgow singer-songwriter Jim McAteer poses on his new single ‘The Everything Thing’.
In his uniquely wry way, Jim ponders how to make the best of the time that we have on Earth.
And with a top-notch band in tow, it turns into an existentialist Cosmic Country party, like Bill Callahan fronting Sweetheart of the Rodeo era Byrds.
Accompanying ‘The Everything Thing’ is a home-recorded version of a new song, ‘Monsieur Shambolique Meets Master Misery’.
When we say new song… we mean a song that Jim has been writing for many years and finally finished under lockdown. It may be his masterpiece! A formidable ten minutes of intricately rhymed storytelling, an allegory of the human spirit’s determination to create and be free.
‘The Everything Thing’/’Monsieur Shambolique Meets Master Misery’, is released jointly by Fox Star Records and Sonic Bull.
