After a year of relative downtime in 2017, ‘Baby, I’m Not A Runaway Anymore’ is Rob Lynch’s second single this year after ‘Red Lion Square’ earlier in 2018. He gives a nod to his 2016 album Baby, I’m A Runaway, which at the time he maybe thought would be his last. Listen to the single below and buy it from Xtra Mile Recordings.
Lynch says: “After I’d finished the touring cycle for Baby, I’m A Runaway, I thought I was done with playing music. I was burnt out. I’d spent the best part of a decade sacrificing everything in pursuit of playing music and I’d lost my direction. Afer a bit of time off, I picked up my guitar and I wrote ‘Baby, I’m Not A Runaway Anymore’. It’s a love song that I wrote for music, saying sorry to it for almost giving up on it. I found a new approach to make this work.”
Rob enlisted long time friend and Deaf Havana frontman, James Veck-Gilodi, to oversee production duties, who lent his pop expertise and love of sad music to the process. Having visited a full-band setup on Baby, I’m A Runaway, Lynch returns to his more stripped back emo roots on, a sound that we can expect to hear more of on his third album, which is due for a 2019 release.
