Pete MacLeod releases a new single entitled ‘Firing Line’.
The singer-songwriter, who grew up in Coatbridge, spent several years living in California before returning to Scotland in 2013, when he released his debut EP, ‘Glasgow Keeps Me Real, California Lets Me Heal’.
He then signed to Alan McGee’s newly-launched 359 Music label where her released his debut album, ‘Rolling Stone’.
The new single is available via Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube, and like 2016’s album ‘Crestfallen’, was produced by Youth, though the new track is not available on MacLeod’s recently released long-player ‘Walk To The Light’.
The former Killing Joke bassist plays on several songs, while Simon Tong (of Verge and Gorillaz), James McCartney (son of one of the Beatles), plus Andy Bell out of Ride / Oasis / Beady Eye also feature.
MacLeod states that the new song “is about today’s society with smart phones, social media and the unfortunate consistency of everyone feeling like they have to comment, judge and have an opinion on absolutely everything and the judgement of each other within this process.
“Also the uncertainty of where we all stand as a result of this today. Is it better for us to live this way?”
Next live dates for MacLeod are an acoustic tour in May and June. Shows confirmed to date are:
04.05.19 STIRLING Forthside Festival
21.05.19 LONDON Half Moon, Putney
10.06.19 MANCHESTER Jimmy’s
