Henry Jamison “Green Room” – Listen

On this third, and final, single from the upcoming (due 15th May) EP ‘Tourism‘ Henry Jamison is joined by one of his musical heroes, Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear.    It’s a bit of a dream come true for Jamison as he revealed “Grizzly Bear has been my favourite band for about ten years, so, I was extremely happy when Ed wanted to sing with me. I feel like this song fits his slightly operatic style especially well

Explaining ‘Green Room’ specifically Jamison added that it is “about being in LA and seeing the movie Spirited Away come on the TV while I half-slept on the green room couch. It was my then-ex-girlfriend’s favourite movie and brought on a flood of memories. It also features a very compelling character called ‘No-Face’, a being who is so spiritually empty that it needs to devour everything in its sight, a mythical “hungry ghost”. Being in LA, home to many would-be stars, I was forced to ask if I was a hungry ghost myself, as my career had taken me away from so many things I missed so badly.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
