New Release & UK Tour: John Paul White – My Dreams Have All Come True

John Paul White is set to return to the UK in January to play a string of shows. Currently in the studio working on the follow up to last year’s Beulah, White has also released a new song, in the form of My Dreams Have All Come True

Take a listen below…

White says of the new track: “Kris Kristofferson made a living out of writing songs that said, ‘I get it. I’m no good for you. You deserve better. But…don’t go quite yet.’ This is my version of that type of moment…I wanted to write a complex song about a complex situation. Lots of changes, lots of elements. I wanted it to ebb and flow, like any relationship. It HAD to be a waltz. There was a conscious effort to keep the singer calm—almost soothing, comforting—as he explains that he knows where they’re heading. In the bridge, I deliberately sought to convey something slightly different than the rest of the song. A moment where the singer isn’t quite as nonchalant and reveals he’s falling apart. And then with the final line, he pulls himself together and accepts his fate. Because he always knew it was coming. I also just love a sad song with a happy title”

One half of the four-time Grammy-winning duo The Civil Wars, White’s collaborations include contributions to recordings by Rodney Crowell, Hiss Golden Messenger, Rosanne Cash, Jason Isbell, Candi Staton and Emmylou Harris, and production work with Lera Lynn, Lindi Ortega, Dylan LeBlanc, Penny & Sparrow and Donnie Fritts’ Oh My Goodness, which also marked White’s debut as a producer. White is also a partner in Single Lock Records, an independent record label based in Florence, Alabama

Forthcoming live shows are as follows…

January 27th – Gateshead, Sage
28th – Manchester, Night & Day
29th – London, Omeara
30th – Bristol, The Louisiana
