London-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist James Billett is gearing up for the release of his new single, “Never Lose Flight”, which will be released digitally on May 3. Popdose is pleased to bring you the exclusive premiere of the video for the song.
Produced by Peter Henderson, whose decades long career includes iconic albums by Paul McCartney and Supertramp (which includes their masterwork Breakfast In America), the emotive, soulful slice of folk pop is taken from a forthcoming debut full-length album which will be released in late summer/early fall.
Says Billett: “I first wrote the original lyric to this song 10 years ago, and it has been through many incarnations during that time – but finally, this is how the song was always meant to sound. “You make my fingers feel like feathers of a wing that will never lose flight” just describes anyone that picks you up and elevates you when you most need it. For me, the song is an ode to the gift of knowledge and experience being passed down from one generation to the next, and a reflection of the gratitude for the sense of ambition and resilience that is instilled in us as children without us knowing it. As we grow older we become more and more aware of what has been learnt, and for me this song documents that realization.”

Never Lose Flight will be available digitally as of Friday, May 3rd, 2019
