Lovefilm, Love McMorrow

If you've seen the Lovefilm advert on UK television then no doubt you will have fallen in love with 'Higher Love'. Irish Singer/Songwriter James Vincent McMorrow has covered Steve Winwood's 1986 classic and completely transformed it into a chilling and beautiful ballad. When McMorrow sings, the words to the song seem to take on a completely different meaning. Yes... it will probably be played to death in the run up to Christmas but for now, lets just appreciate the breathtaking quality of McMorrow's voice. I'm reminded a little of Antony and the Johnsons. Check out the album 'Early in the Morning' for more of James Vincent McMorrow.
