To accompany the single a filming of Jamie Webster‘s live performance in the singer’s home City of Liverpool was able to capture the emotionally charged energy of the packed out crowd in the The Guild of Students, a gig which took place on the 11th September.
The single tells a short story of Paul and Annabella, as always Jamie Webster is able to put all his observations of people watching and convert them into lyrics to which the audience and his fans are able to capture emotionally and sing back to him.
Webster says of the single
“People must pretend not to understand what it’s been like for young people, waiting to finally live what they are told are their best years only to be denied that life for so long. They’ve had so little support,
“Their own pains weren’t addressed during lockdowns and nobody came out on their side or to change things, so ‘Going Out’ is about understanding why rules are broken. If people like this one and ‘Days Unknown’ then ‘Moments’ won’t disappoint them. It’s bigger, better and doesn’t compromise for a second to try and claim popularity over principles.”
The Lyrics are charged with frustration, they are able to demonstrate the loss and rebellion that twenty somethings and others have to endure under recent circumstances. We had been given rules that none of us were able to comprehend, which took away peoples liberty’s and freedom. The single demonstrates pure rebellion at being told to stay still “Nah, fuck it, tonight I’m going out” is a two finger salute which so many will resonate with.
The single was recorded in Rockfield which has welcomed many other artists throught its doors such as Queen, Oasis, and The Lightning Seeds. To which Jamie Webster has returned with former Lightning Seed band members who feature on the new album Jim Sharrock ( drums ) Tim Cunnigham ( Bass) Danny Murphy ( Guitar )
The influence of Bob Dylan shines through on both released singles ‘Days Unknown’ and ‘Going Out’. The difference with this taste of the album compared to the first is the amplified injection of electric, demonstrating a ‘beefed’ up version to ‘We Get By’ it’s super charged and brings with it an army of loyal fans
including UFC fighter Meatball Molly who added her live videos of the gig to her social media account. The complete unity of the audience add to the live performances, the singer provides, which you can now watch in the accompanying video to the single.
The singer looks forward to three more homecoming dates in the UK & Irelands headline tour ahead of the albums release. See dates below.
