Monaghan singer-songwriter Jim McHugh has returned with a brand new single, called 'Dave.' The track is the first taste of what's to come from his highly-anticipated upcoming third album Pretending To Wake Up.
On 'Dave,' McHugh's rock sound has evolved in an organic way, showcasing how he has progressed his rock sound over the years while managing to never waver from his roots in crunchy guitars and anthemic riffs.
Working alongside producer Alex Borwick (Parliament Funkadelic, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Niamh Regan, Lankum) and session musicians Paul McCabe (bass) Paul Sherry (Electric Guitar) and Butch McNeill (Drums), McHugh brings a new dynamic and alluring sound to the rock genre.
"In a story of misspent youth, 'Dave' unveils my interactions with a friend who was known for being on the wrong side of the law on numerous occasions," expalins McHugh.
With this single, McHugh is gearing up his fans for an exciting new album, and sharing a tune that promises to make audiences long for the days when we can return to live gigs.
