Today, soul-stirring London-based artist Barny Fletcher shares his upbeat new anthem ‘Scotch of St. James’. Marking a new era for Fletcher, it showcases his unrivalled passion for celebrating life’s candid moments through his most mature songwriting to date. Listen Here.

Taking its name from the famous London club with rich music heritage, ‘Scotch of St. James’ carries an infectiously feel-good energy. Its lyrics follow a night under the club lights, with all worries left outside the door. Catchy, relatable and a little bit flirty, the smile-inducing single is a huge slice of sunshine.

Speaking about the release, Barny Fletcher says: “I blagged my way into The Scotch of Saint James on a Saturday night. Before long, I was two feet from Virgil Abloh DJ-ing alongside Peggy Gou. I think it must have been Fashion Week because a lot of those type of characters were floating around town. I remember seeing Hailey Bieber, Winnie Harlow and Jourdan Dunn all huddled around the decks; all these supermodels shoulder to shoulder in a tiny low-lit club. It was cool.

“I later discovered a young Jimi Hendrix played his first London show there. Paul McCartney met Stevie Wonder there. The Scotch is an institution with real music history. I was happy to have had my own experience there. And here we are. The right song came along and it felt good to write about it.”

The track’s accompanying music video offers a further nod to London’s musical heritage. Directed by Nick Denisov (Stormzy, Raye), its vintage look is inspired by The Beatles’ iconic rooftop performance, as passers-by enjoy Fletcher and his bandmates performing slickly amidst the old and new buildings of the city.
