Scottish singer/songwriter Gerry Cinnamon has dropped his new single ‘Head in the Clouds’ which is the sixth song to be released from his upcoming studio album ‘The Bonny’.
Commenting on the track, he said: “Head In The Clouds kinda documents my nightly battles with insomnia where every few weeks everything goes tits up, as it would for most folk if they didn’t sleep for three days. But there is also a loose narrative of a kinda love story.“
Adding: “It starts off with a bleak outlook on life ‘more late nights of the same old shite than you care to remember’ but then there’s a shift: ‘but something’s appearing, it’s blurring your vision, and it’s cutting a shape like a hot razor blade with a deadly precision’. You don’t really find out what the change is until the end when you realise the character in the song is just loved up and trying to run away from it: ‘I don’t know if you’re really in love but I have my suspicions’.“
Speaking about the album’s release, he said: “It’s probably not smart to release during a lockdown when the shops are closed and everyone’s isolating but no chance I’m letting folk down. Never gave a fuck about numbers anyway not going to start now.“
