Gerry Cinnamon has released a new song.

Titled Where We're Going, the Stone Roses-esque track is the fifth preview of the singer-songwriter's upcoming sophomore album, 'The Bonny', out on April 17 via his own Little Runaway label. It follows the previously shared title track, Dark Days, Sun Queen and Canter. Cinnamon said :

"Where We're Going I wrote years ago at a dark time in my life. Folk can attach their own meaning to it but really it's about being in a shit place with no way out, mixed with a gentle reminder to hold onto whatever wee dream you have. A mixture of dark stuff with some positive reality.

"If you’re in a real shit situation it can be near impossible to see a positive outcome unless you’re either an idiot or a serial optimist. I don’t want to contribute to the negative shit in my writing, there’s more than enough of that going around already.

"If I write songs about the bad stuff I think it’s only polite to remind the listener of the real reality. That it doesn’t matter where you’re at, it's where you’re going that matters. Put the graft in and better times are inevitable. Easy."

The Glaswegian has also revealed the album's artwork which portrays two shots of life in the '60s and '70s for alternating covers. He added:

"It’s the contrast between the foreground and the background that gets me. It’s the look in her eyes. Hypnotic. Look at the image as a whole, it looks concrete and dangerous but she looks strong... resilient. There’s not many things stronger in this life than a mother’s love for her kid. 'The Bonny' is just a metaphor for dreaming something into existence and building it bigger for the people you love. If that image doesn’t capture what 'The Bonny' is about, I don’t know what does. It tells a million stories."

Cinnamon will support the record with tour dates throughout May, June, July and August, including headline sets at the Belsonic and This Is Tomorrow festivals. Tickets are on sale now.
