Should Have Lied is the newly minted single from Co.Monaghan singer songwriter Jim McHugh. The indie rocker is back with his first taste of his forthcoming 3rd album.
In an original twist on the age-old song of apologetic remorse, ‘Should Have Lied‘ unveils the singer’s regret following a misguided act of truth telling. With a catchy melody and driving rock & roll licks, the song will have listeners grooving and shaking along to this unabashed story of a romantic blunder.
Being his first offering of new music since the release of his highly praised album My Nuclear Radio in 2019, McHugh picks up where he left off with his own unique blend of rock, indie and traditional styles.
From the Farney drumlins of Co. Monaghan, Ireland, multi-instrumentalist Jim McHugh drew upon his past and recent musical experiences to record his debut album entitled ‘Noise Machine’ in 2016, nicely summed up by Pete Whalley as ‘Indie folk-driven rock that has a vibrant beating heart’.
Jim’s second album ‘My Nuclear Radio’ followed in 2019 and gained Jim more recognition with singles added to RTE 1 Recommends and getting Album Of The Week at KCLR.
Should Have Lied features Paul McCabe on Bass, Butch McNeill on Drums and Alex Borwick on Trombone.
Jim will perform a special Facebook live online gig to celebrate the release on August 21st.
Keep Up with Jim McHugh
