Gerry Cinnamon tees up a huge summer by sharing his brand new single ‘Where We’re Going’. The track emerges ahead of the release of his eagerly anticipated second album ‘The Bonny’ in April.
A remarkable live performer able to inspire electrifying, arena-wide singalongs from his devoted fanbase, Gerry will then spend the summer playing the biggest shows of his career to date.
His headline shows are sold-out in advance – all 50,000 tickets for his homecoming show at Glasgow’s Hampden Park Stadium were snapped up within a day and his Manchester date is also sold out.
He is also set to headline the Belsonic and This Is Tomorrow festivals.
He’ll bring his summer festival schedule to a close at the Reading and Leeds Festivals, where he takes the penultimate slot to Liam Gallagher.
“‘Where We’re Going’ I wrote years ago at a dark time in my life. Folk can attach their own meaning to it but really it’s about being in a shit place with no way out, mixed with a gentle reminder to hold onto whatever wee dream you have. A mixture of dark stuff with some positive reality.
If you’re in a real shit situation it can be near impossible to see a positive outcome unless you’re either an idiot or a serial optimist. I don’t want to contribute to the negative shit in my writing, there’s more than enough of that going around already. If I write songs about the bad stuff I think it’s only polite to remind the listener of the real reality. That it doesn’t matter where you’re at, it’s where you’re going that matters. Put the graft in and better times are inevitable. Easy.
‘The Bonny’ is available to pre-order on both digital and physical formats. The CD and cassette formats both feature an alternate album cover, while four collectable vinyl editions will be available: standard black vinyl; a flame-esque red and orange vinyl available exclusively from Gerry’s official website; orange vinyl; and red vinyl that will be sold via select independent stores.
Gerry’s website also offers various bundles which include items such as a signed lyric book and a new t-shirt design.
