McLean - My Name
We've got a world-exclusive on Fresh Cuts next week: check out McLean performing an amazing acoustic version of his new single My Name for the first time anywhere on radio next Saturday night at 8pm on Roundhouse Radio. He passed through the studios yesterday and blessed us with one hell of a live session which definitely ranks amongst the best we've ever had on the show, performing outstanding acoustic versions of this track and the amazing Broken.
McLean - Broken
This guy's songwriting is phenomenal, but it's not just that - he's a singer with real soul who sings with emotion - something most R&B singers autotune out of their vocals in 2009. Broken and My Name sound particularly good when you hear stripped-down acoustic versions where the vocals and lyrics take centre stage.
Signed to Asylum now and with his debut album due for release next year, expect big things of McLean in 2010.
