Stewart’s upcoming headline tour includes a Dublin Show at The Academy on May 27.
JC Stewart was recently crowned one of our Hot for 2020 Irish Acts and shared his brand new single ‘Lying That You Love Me’ today, which represents his first release of the year. The track has received its first play from Radio 1’s Best New Pop and follows the recent news that JC was highlighted as Apple Music’s New Artist of the Week.
‘Lying That You Love Me’ opens with his heartfelt voice accompanied by plaintive piano before swelling with soaring vocals, dramatic percussion and sweeping strings as it builds towards a climactic finale. Stewart released an accompanying acoustic video version as well. The track was produced by KOZ, whose previous credits include Dua Lipa’s hits ‘IDGAF’ and ‘Hotter Than Hell’.
“It’s about that weird feeling of loving what you know and being scared of change,” says JC. “In this case, it’s missing someone, even though you know they were bad for you and it wasn’t going anywhere.”
The Irish singer-songwriter is also confirmed to perform at this year’s Other Voices Ballina on the 29th.
