Monday blues got you down? I’m no doctor, but I think I have something that might help you out. George FitzGerald just released the third song off of his upcoming “All That Must Be” album entitled, ‘Outgrown,’ a collaboration with Bonobo, a relationship best described as Jedi/Padawan.
If you’re a fan of either of their music, then this song is going to be a little slice of heaven for you. It welcomes you in like a hug, somehow managing to be subdued and upbeat at the same time, leading to a kind of hypnosis with what I believe is an arpeggio on the synth out front. That synth charges through the song like a flashlight through a cave through a slow build, eventually peaking at a drop into a more frantic and busy section.
FitzGerald covers a ton of ground in these three songs, leading to speculation and a ton of optimism about the rest of the album, due out March 9th. Check the video below for a listen or head here for a link to your favorite streaming service. You may want to put in a preorder (links below) or save it on Spotify so you have it as soon as it comes out.
This spring will also see a brief run of tours, first in Europe then later in North America. Check out the full list below the video and head to www.george-fitzgerald.com for tickets.
