In the fifth Lockdown live session, Craig Irving performs a two-song session for www.godisinthetvzine.co.uk featuring an acoustic version of his new single ‘Running Back To You’ plus a cover of U2‘s ‘With Or Without You.‘ Watch it exclusively below.

1. Running Back To You
2. With Or Without You (U2 cover)

‘Running Back to You’ is the second single to be released from new Glasgow artist Craig Irving’s forthcoming debut When I First Met You EP which is out now.

Representing the ‘pop’ in Irving’s modern indie-rock-pop sound, ‘Running Back To You’ brims with deep synth lines and an infectious 80’s drum machine beat, recalling the indie-pop sound of Irving’s more contemporary influences such as 1975 and LANY.

Following on from the previous single ‘Say Goodbye’ (aptly released on Valentine’s Day 2019), which tackled the kind of self-love involved in knowing when to quit a failing relationship, ‘Running Back To You’ is the push-pull struggle of the aftermath. As Irving expands: “The song is about knowing a relationship is over but being unable to severe the connection with that person cleanly.”

Irving was raised in the Scottish Highlands and spent his formative years lending guitar and vocals to some of Scotland’s top folk acts, winning a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award (2015) – among many others – for former outfit Talisk, and embarking on multiple worldwide tours with six-piece Gaelic band Mànran.

‘Running Back To You’ is released on 27th March, the When I First Met You EP from which it is taken follows on 3rd April.
