Album Notes
This Eternal Life is the fourth album by solo artist, James Parkinson and was written and recorded after the tragic death of James’s father who died in May 2017, musician and guitarist Allan Parkinson (ex Slack Alice). The subject matter reflects on the tragic event in songs like ‘Faithful People’ and celebrates his ferocity as a musician, performer and songwriter in ‘Not Close Enough.’ We also see James exploring more personal themes on fatherhood in ‘His Skin’ and childhood in ‘Not A Word To Anyone’ as well as issues of self-worth in ‘Tired’ and the relationship between creativity and mental health in ‘Faces in the Dark.’ ‘Living Doesn’t have to be a Lie’ delves in to the darker side of social media and the facade people hide behind. James also pays tribute to the mercurial Billy Mackenzie of The Associates in ‘This Eternal Life’, sonically empathising between his tug of war with fame and creativity. Musically James has gone for a more cinematic and wide-screen sound that features more piano and analogue synths as well as his trademark guitar tones and melodic, soaring virtuosity. As always the lyrics aim to challenge, explore and reveal candidly the human condition and the darker side of life.
