James Morrison feat. Jessie J: 'Up' - Single review

By
James Morrison feat. Jesse J: 'Up'
Released on Sunday, Dec 4 2011

When we met James Morrison back in September, he said he was "s**ting himself" about releasing his third album The Awakening. However, the singer-songwriter had little to worry about when the collection soared to the top of the charts; proving that there is still plenty of room for a guitar-strumming singer-songwriter. Hoping to continue his streak of success, the Rugby-born crooner has called upon the services of diva-du-jour Jessie J for his new single.

"It's never too late to turn it back around/ Yeah, I know you can," Morrison pleas in his distinct gravelly tones before giving way to a run of Jessie J ad-libbing that yo-yos faster than an Alton Towers rollercoaster. That said, when it's put against a dreary backdrop of weeping guitars and a melancholy beat, the result is about as tedious as those pesky theme park queues. As such, there's an agonising sense of anticipation, but it just doesn't go anywhere fast.
