Gin Wigmore, ‘Man Like That’ (Old Queens Head Session) Video Premiere
For any ladies out there who may be considering hooking up with "a particular ex-boyfriend" of Gin Wigmore, the New Zealand-based singer-songwriter has a message for you: Don't bother. That's the gist of 'Man Like That,' a tune that first turned up on her critically acclaimed 2011 sophomore effort, 'Gravel and Wine,' which finally gets its U.S. release on April 2. In the video above -- the first of three exclusive clips Diffuser.fm will premiere in the coming weeks -- Wigmore offers fans a blistering version recorded last year in the U.K. during a studio outing she's called the Old Queens Head Session.
"This song was written as an insight to all future women potentially thinking about dating a particular ex-boyfriend of mine," says Wigmore. "It explains the simple fact that he might seem pretty damn cool with his hot shot moves in the beginning, however if you dig a little deeper, you will not find such a good catch after all. I'd say I'm saving women from a little less heartache dating that creep."
A superstar in her homeland, where both of her first two albums have topped the charts, Wigmore is perhaps best known to American audiences for the pair of songs she's landed in high-profile Heineken and Guinness commercials. (Her work has also popped up in numerous TV shows.) Next month, she'll promote 'Gravel and Wine' with appearances on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' (April 4) and 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' (April 5), so stateside viewers will be able to put a name and face to the voice. She'll also hit the road for a tour with Phillip Phillips (dates below).
Diffuser.fm's series of Old Queens Head Session video premieres continues on March 27 and April 3, so be sure to check back for more Wigmore action. Until then, watch 'Man Like That' in its entirety above -- and again, stay away from Gin's ex!
