DEBUT ALBUM “NECESSARY EVIL” ANNOUNCED FOR MAY 21ST VIA DEW PROCESS
Set to release his debut album Necessary Evil on Friday 21 May, today Tyne-James Organ shares the hypnotic new album track London’s Calling via Dew Process.
London’s Calling features Organ’s well-worn soul naked and on display, a voice fried with emotion and anguish, with heartbreak at its core. “I wrote London’s Calling early 2019 with one of my best mates Luke Rundle. It’s about the day I found out an old friend was moving back to London. There’d been a gap of conversation for a good 18 months. So much I wanted to say, but didn’t have the words. The day I got the message it all just fell out of me. It’s not about changing what is, or what could have been but just looking back at all the good that it was. I think we naturally forget about the good times within relationships after they’re over, and only focus on the end. Yes, it sucks but it happens. We live and we learn from it. I still haven’t sent that message I thought I would’ve but I guess this is it. I finished this one up in Byron last year with Chris Collins and I’m really proud of what came out,” says Organ of the track.
Necessary Evil was recorded throughout 2020 with longtime creative partner Chris Collins (Middle Kids, Skegss) at his NSW Hinterland studio, Stokers Siding. The result sees Organ move from triumphant and jubilant at one moment, to introspective and tender at the next. He deals with grief and pain, power and passion – sometimes open and raw with bare bones acoustics, other times with undeniable swagger via chugging guitar riffs and a swing for the fences approach that only comes from letting it all go and letting the music speak for itself.
Alongside new single Sunday Suit, Necessary Evil features the upbeat rocker Graceful, the undeniable follow up Hold Me Back; and recent single Not Ready for Love cut so deep it became his most successful international single to date. The track earned the attention of BBC Radio 1 tastemaker Jack Saunders, who locked into that vocal line straight away, saying, “…he’s got such a sick voice! He sounds like he’s just woken up after a three-day bender with Mick Jagger and Ozzy Osbourne picked up the guitar and gone straight into the recording booth without even attempting to rehydrate in any capacity at all. I love the gravel when he really pushes his voice to the max!”
Organ has steadily grown his audience and reputation over the last few years with hard work, brilliant stage craft, wearing his heart on his sleeve and an undeniable talent for writing beautiful music. It’s a courage that has endeared him to fans around the country and the world at large. He’s shared stages with The Lumineers, Jake Bugg, Middle Kids, and Lime Cordiale to name a few, and several sold out national headline tours in minutes. As well as playing some of Australia’s biggest festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Falls, Party in the Paddock, Yours and Owls and Fairgrounds.
Organ’s Necessary Evil album tour will commence on Friday 4 June in Adelaide, and continue throughout Perth, Wollongong, Sydney, Byron Bay, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra and Newcastle in June and July. Tickets are on sale here: www.tynejamesorgan.com.
