Listen to the new track from Edinburgh-based solo artist Stephen McLaren

Feature by Music Team | 25 Jul 2017

Having already received critical acclaim as part of Edinburgh-based dream pop band Collar Up, musician Stephen McLaren has now gone solo, and is set to release his new album We Used To Go Raving at the end of September.

Aiming to evoke feelings of nostalgia, loss and longing, We Used To Go Raving was created as a musical commentary on the human condition in the new millennium. With subject matter ranging from the personal to political, the distant past to the harsh reality of the present, the album is an inspired and thought-provoking collection of electro-rock tracks.

The Skinny are thrilled to be premiering I Sing To You taken from McLaren's upcoming solo debut, which you can listen to in the player below. Of the track, McLaren tells us: "It's a love song. I don't often write love songs, maybe because it’s too important a subject and I feel that it’s overdone in music anyway, and often cheesy and insincere. Love is not always easy, nor is it always pleasurable, and I hope that both the good and the bad comes across in the song.”

We Used To Go Raving is released on 29 Sep via Errant Media.
