From his upcoming sophomore LP, “They Don’t Put Any Money in Your Pocket”, Edinburgh’s established solo artist Stephen McLaren is ready to release the second single,
“My Heart is Wandering To You”.
“Stephen McLaren is a dream-pop anomaly….his music is epic and intimate all at once” The Scotsman
“Epic and exciting” Spark FM
“His passion, his pain…his voice just draws you in” Big City Radio
Slightly dropping the tempo from the frenetic pace of “Put Me On The Television”, McLaren begins “My Heart is Wandering To You” with a mesmeric, cascading piano chord sequence and then proceeds to powerfully orate the love song of the year. Uplifting, hopeful, and with McLaren’s equal commitment to orchestral arrangement and ghostly, ethereal backing vocals, this is a strong follow-up.
Praise for last single, “Put Me On The Television”:
“Like it has beamed in from somewhere else…McLaren is a singular artist, and we are lucky to have him.”
Is This Music
“One of my favourite tracks!”
Big City Radio
“Exuding a unique, different type of dream-pop…closer to the foundations of which it was built.”
“My Heart Is Wandering To You” comes complete with another small-screen masterpiece – video, directed by Jordan Yorkston
With this, the second of three singles planned for video release in 2021, expect to be affected and impressed in equal measure when “They Don’t Put Any Money In Your Pocket” arrives, as it will not disappoint.
