Henry Jamison featuring Darlingside - "I Forget Myself"

If you like a song with a good story, it's going to be hard to outdo the latest from Henry Jamison. He wrote the song about a former partner. Nowadays, not only are they back together, but they find themselves quarantined together. As Jamison explains: “I Forget Myself’ is a song of regret, written in the aftermath of a breakup. When I wrote this song a year ago, I obviously had no idea that it would come out in the middle of a global pandemic nor that we would be back together."

The song itself is fairly brilliant. It's a fairly standard singer/songwriter folk song, but with this lovely twist as if it was being filtered through the brain of Brian Wilson. Jamison has always been a brilliant and captivating live performer, and "I Forget Myself" might be his first recorded song that captures that.

You can watch the video for "I Forget Myself" below. The song, which features Darlingside, will be on his upcoming collaborative EP, Tourism. Tourism will be released May 15 and also features collaborations with Ed Droste (Grizzly Bear), Lady Lamb, and Fenne Lily. For more on Henry Jamison, check out his website.
