Gavin James shares his new single ‘Boxes’

The message of the song is to not listen to anybody. Just listen to yourself and follow your dream… I went to an all boys school in Dublin..

The single, executive produced by Fred Gibson (George Ezra), co-produced by Sam Tsang (Ed Sheeran), Ollie Green (Freya Ridings) and mixed by Grammy award winning Serban Ghena (Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes) will see Gavin make a magnificent return to charts around the globe.

James’s previous singles have topped charts in his home country of Ireland (where he has sold out two Dublin 3 Arenas) plus France, the Netherlands (where he has sold out another two arenas), BelgiumSwitzerland and Portugal. Even Brazil where Gavin went to number one and reached over 100 million people after his single Nervous was used on the soundtrack to the telenovela (soap opera) Pega Pega. His single ‘Tired’ with Alan Walker has now had over 250 million streams on Spotify alone and was also remixed by Kygo.

Boxes may be simple, but like all of the best Gavin James songs, it is also extremely moving:

“The message of the song is to not listen to anybody. Just listen to yourself and follow your dream… I went to an all boys school in Dublin where if you wore the wrong shoes you had to walk around in slippers all day,” he says. “I was a bit mad at school, I wouldn’t even try a little bit, and for years I had people saying I couldn’t do anything, it was too hard to make it in music, I shouldn’t try.”
