Kiwi singer Mitch James is back in the country, with a new single and upcoming album on the way.
The 27-year-old spent time in LA earlier this year crafting his second album 'patience'. Since releasing his self-titled debut album four years ago, Mitch faced many personal struggles, but told Jay-Jay & Flynny he's now in a "great place".
"My therapist is the best. I have my little 'Self-Care Tuesdays' where I don't do anything else apart from, you know, I get my massage and my therapy and sometimes I even get the nails done."
Mitch James admitted he found COVID and lockdowns very difficult, stuck in a room alone in Australia for nine months, calling it "essentially a luxury prison sentence."
'motions' marks the first single from his sophomore album 'patience', describing the collection of songs as "the truth, being honest, being vulnerable" and "a full sort of 360" to how he started in music as a storyteller.
"The general message of ['motions'] is, you know, it's for anyone who's been lost or feels lost, but they have that drive to want to get out of it. And I think it's a very important message, you know, to be a pop musician in this day and age, to, you know, not be talking about 'I'm so rich. I got so much girls'. Like, yeah, this is real."
