Listen To Jim White's New Song 'Drift Away', Out Today
Friday, 27th October 2017
'Drift Away', the second new track to be shared from Jim White's forthcoming new album, is out today.Speaking to Folk Radio, Jim explains the inspiration behind the song: "In my late 20’s I found myself increasingly drawn to the company of profoundly damaged romantic partners, mistaking their devils for my own. Big mistake–one fuelled by a weird cocktail of personal cowardice and hubris.
We all have our crosses to bear but every one is balanced differently. Even a big man can struggle carrying a small cross if the balance is unorthodox and when you come to that point where you finally realise you’ve fooled yourself into carrying the wrong load and you’re living in bad faith, sooner or later you face that choice to either walk on in your wrongness, raging against your own miscalculation, or try to lay said cross down, leave it behind, praying powers of mysterious grace carry you beyond the valence of said crosses gravitational field. The latter is harder than it sounds for those configured like me.
Drift Away is a simplified representation of that complicated proposition."
