Jono McCleery, one of the UK’s finest singer songwritersreturns with a beautiful cover version of the Atoms For Peace song ‘Ingenue’ and announces new UK tour dates.
With the incredible living and breathing harmonium (reed organ) played by Steve Pringle (Michael Kiwanuka) at its foundation, Jono’s vocal performance was recorded in one take with additional percussion and bass by Dan See (Jamie Woon / Nick Mulvey) and Milo Fitzpatrick (Portico Quartet) respectively. Tim Rowkins, the producer with whom Jono worked on his album ‘Pagodes‘, stitched everything together.
“The chorus melody was the first thing that hit me about this track, and was instantly stuck in my head all day long… in a good way,” Jono laughs. “Then as I began to learn the song the lyrics became more symbolic, particularly the lyric ‘Seeds of a dandelion blow away’ – the notion of letting go, and the idea that hope is fragile.”
