Dublin-based singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow released his debut Early in the Morning
earlier this year, and is currently on an American tour to support the
album. "This record was borne out of my desire to create something
singular, take the simplest of chords, wrap them in washes of melody, so
lines come in, they drop out, everything ebbs and flows as the songs
move towards their inevitable end," McMorrow tells Rolling Stone
about his cheerful and upbeat track, "Sparrow and the Wolf." "I don't
sit down with an agenda when I write, I usually have a first line, and a
vague sense in my head of where I'm going, but no real solid
structure." Although Early in the Morning is in stores now, you can download "Sparrow and the Wolf" for free here.
