After ending a successful 2016 with a sold-out headline show to 15,000 people in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland, Gavin James is ready to kick start 2017 with the launch of his new single “I Don’t Know Why”.
“I Don’t Know Why”; taken from his debut album ‘Bitter Pill’, follows on from his previous single and breakout hit ‘Nervous’ that has; to date, achieved over 90 million streams collectively on Spotify, hit No.1 in Holland, Top 10 in France, Norway and Ireland as well as going multi-platinum in several international markets.
The song; about young love and wanting to be with that one person who stands out above anyone else, came to be in a rather interesting way, says Gavin.
“I was working all day in the studio on some songs but nothing was coming out. So, I met up with a friend and went out and got quite drunk, then came back home at 4 in the morning and started working on an idea. I woke up later that day with no recollection of recording at all and the song “I Don’t Know Why” was all there.”
“I Don’t Know Why” will be supported by a sold-out headline tour in Ireland (February), UK (April), as well as dates in Europe (Spring) & the US (May/June), before hitting festival season in the summer.
