New Release: C.Macleod – Kicks In

World renowned record producer makes an album with fifth generation farmer from the Isle of Lewis isn’t a story you hear every day! But that’s exactly what happened with Colin Macleod and Ethan Johns. The result is a remarkable collection of contemporary, Americana influenced folk music, that perfectly evokes the atmosphere, beauty and history of Macleod’s isolated home in the Outer Hebrides

New single Kicks In is a case in point, an expansive, yearning track that also acts as the album’s opener – take a listen below…

About the track, Macleod states “Kicks In is a song about wasting time on an island when you’re young, breaking windows and lighting fires, wondering when real life will start and what happens on the other side of the water”

C.Macleod’s debut album is due for release on his own label, Country Punk Records (through BMG) in early 2018
