The video for James’ current single Glow from Only Ticket Home was shot around his hometown of Dublin, featuring locations that kick-started Gavin’s career and featuring several cameos, including his parents and local musicians.

"Glow was one of the first songs I recorded for the album and set the mood for every other song on the album after that sonically so as people listen to the album, there is a natural flow to the album." he says.

"Glow is a song about modern day relationships. It’s the feeling you get when you know you’re in love with someone and it scares you at the same time.

Have case, will travel 

"It’s pretty much about not giving up on something that could be amazing just out of fear and then ultimately regretting it if you let go."

He also plays Friday December 28th - INEC Killarney on Friday, December 28 and Royal Theater Castlebar on Saturday December 29.

The full track-listing for the new album, the follow-up to 2016's Bitter Pill, is: Start Again, Glow, Always, Faces, Hearts On Fire, Cigarette Break, The Middle, Strangers, Easy, Tired, Only Ticket Home, Put You Back Together, Hard To Do, Last Year (Live).
