“Meet me by the river Mersey... maybe this time I can change your mind”
Matt McManamon has released his new single 'Meet Me By The River' alongside the music video. The track is an ode to Liverpool, the city he grew up in. Reflective, emotional and poignant, 'Meet Me By The River' is taken from his debut solo album, 'Scally Folk'.
Of his new single, McManamon says: "I wrote this song as somewhat of a homecoming anthem or perhaps homesick anthem after some years in London during my 20s. As with many songs in the past 2 years, its meaning has evolved, and now living in Ireland I feel even more drawn to the need to revisit those streets where I grew up and where my musical influences were first formed. I wanted this song to almost be a love letter to Liverpool and highlight how I missed the place, this also accidentally turned out to be an ambiguous song and there is a hidden meaning behind it, but I’m not going to divulge that.....yet!"
Matt McManamon is the former frontman and songwriter of The Dead 60s, who had 5 UK top 40 hit singles. Before launching his solo career, Matt toured with The Specials.
