Following the release of ‘Anywhere With Me’, a song that won Louder’s ‘Track of The Week’, LAURENCE JONES unveils his second to single from the hotly anticipated new album ‘Destination Unknown’ out September 9th via Marshall Records.
The track ‘Can’t Keep From Loving You’ brings a driving bassline, bouncy synths and punchy drums that let the guitar take centre stage, pushing LAURENCE JONES from his traditional blues foundations and flipping the switch to the high voltage current of Rock.
Regarding the single, Laurence states:
“I wanted to take that influence from The Who, the big drums and melodic guitar riffs and put my own spin on it. It’s an up-tempo crowd rocking song that’s been one of my favourites to play live. It was in the set on our tour with Status Quo and even Francis Rossi said, “that’s a cracking song’. We tried to keep that live feel when we recorded it at The Marshall Studio, working together in one room and really feeling the energy of us playing.”
Upon announcing ‘Destination Unknown’ LAURENCE JONES also revealed that there would be a special one-off performance of the record in its entirety at the Marshall Studio.
Laurence has since sold out this performance on August 20th at the very studio where ‘Destination Unknown’ was recorded. At the show 200 fans will be treated to a live performance of the entire album and some fan favourites, before he embarks on his Autumn UK and European tour.
