Premiere: “Let’s Get Out Of Here” by Jamie McLean Band

In the midst of a cold and dreary winter, and just when the world-famous weather-forecasting groundhog’s shadow has predicted that there’s no end in sight, guitar-wielding blue-eyed soul man Jamie McLean comes through with a little ray of sunshine with his new single, “Let’s Get Out Of Here,” a modernized boy-meets-girl story.  The tune is featured on McLean’s forthcoming album, One And Only, out February 23rd.

“A fella is interested in a lady. There’s some dancing. Her friends are around to judge a bit. There’s so more dancing. He proposes that they take this party elsewhere,” McLean explains of the song. “It’s funny. When I started this song it had almost a reggae feel to it. I was working with Brett Dennen at the time and almost thought about giving him the song instead of recording it myself,” he continues. “I kept hearing a sax solo on this one so I called up my buddy Jeff Coffin from Dave Matthews Band. He totally kills it! Perfect summer vibe!”

As it happens, the band relied on their drummer to keep them focused on the summery vibe. “He played the entire song with a whistle in his mouth. You can hear it at the very end,” McLean reveals. “We kept asking him ‘what time does beach volleyball start?’ By the end of the song he was drooling and looked like a Saint Bernard,” he adds with a laugh. “It kept the whole song beachy and fun.”

Recorded at the famed Sound Emporium studios in Nashville, One And Only captures the band’s strongest songwriting to date. The album was produced by Ken Coomer of Wilco and features not only saxophonist Coffin, but Sam Bush as well. The Jamie McLean Band will tour behind their new album throughout North America this year, check below for a list of upcoming dates.
