It is raining glitter, but James Morrison could probably care less. In the music video for “Slave to the Music,” released this month as a single in the UK, the English singer-songwriter finds himself and his band in a warehouse that was probably once used to shoot Gap commercials, but where gold glitter now pours from the ceiling, and a modern dance company leaps before him. None of this seems to bother Morrison, who is lost in the groove. He looks as though he’s having the time of his life, shuffling and rocking and doing his best Michael Jackson sounds, with just a hint of John Mayer-esque impassioned facial contortions.
On his third album, The Awakening, Morrison reconnects with his love of soul and R&B. The record was released in October 2011, and it earned him a BRIT Award nomination. The album is also perhaps Morrison’s most personal, since in the span between Awakening and his sophomore effort, Songs for You, Truths for Me, he lost his father, an event which impacted the songwriting greatly. It also inspired Morrison, who has a three-year-old daughter, to further explore the meaning of fatherhood. We recently spoke to him about The Awakening, his love of Bruce Springsteen, and his daughter’s favorite pop artist (hint: it’s not him).
