Ida Mae releases new single, Tomorrow’s Just Too Far

June 7, 2024

British duo Ida Mae have just released their new single, Tomorrow’s Just Too Far. The new single was co-produced by Bob Mackenzie and Ida Mae’s Chris Turpin and features bassist Nick Pini (Laura Marling, Tom Jones) and drummer Mikey Sorbello. Chris Turpin comments, “This is a ‘get out and run’ song. I wanted it to have the guttural voice of an old country blues song, the yodel of an old Guthrie or Rodger’s tune, tied up in the vernacular or an old English folk ballad. Picking up these threads I wrote it late at night in streams of consciousness on my Steel National Resonator Guitar. It was written at an incredibly important moment. We had a major sea change in our lives. Our young daughter had become a toddler having taken her across America and Europe on tour and new musical and business projects loomed on the horizon. All this whilst dealing with some of the trauma of my early life. I had dived deeper into older folk ballads and stories to find solace and fresh meaning.
