Fast becoming known for his “comfort-blanket” singles, James Smith offers a metaphorical hand of reassurance in his latest release Got The Love. The single sees Smith’s lyrics remind listeners that in times of need to show compassion, as he asserts “If you ain’t got the love, take a piece of mine, you know I’ve got more than enough”.

Speaking on the track, Smith explains the source of inspiration came from a personal place and a space that many of us in today’s context can relate to; “I wrote it for my brother and my closest friends. I’ve found that a lot of younger people nowadays, including myself, are struggling a lot with the pressures of today, such as social media etc.”

The video builds on the theme of compassion but brings to light the importance of human connection with multiple narratives illuminating the power of the personal bond, including an appearance from Smith himself.

Having recently released his EP “The District Line EP” (listen here), an intimate insight into the ‘person’ behind the music, “James Smith” has become a frequently mentioned name on national radio and visitor on national television – including appearances on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, BBC’s The One Show (watch here) and an MTV Music takeover. Dubbed by Wonderland as “one of the UK’s most promising breakout talents”, it’s been a very exciting few months for James Smith.
