Jamie Webster has released his newest single This Place today – a personal love letter to our much-loved hometown of Liverpool.
Known for his honest and relatable lyrics, Webster doesn’t disappoint in the new track, which serves as a “less cliché way of saying there’s no place like home”.
This Place is the latest track to come from Webster’s forthcoming album We Get By, set for release on 21 August 2020.
The album is made up of 12 thought provoking tracks relating to Webster’s views on the rises and falls of current affairs. Known as ‘the people’s poet’, Webster’s album is bursting with lyrics that carry genuine meaning that say it like it is, staying true to his Liverpool roots.
This Place is a track that many will connect to, relating to the emotional attachment that one has to their hometown. It’s a personal triumph for Webster, paying tribute to the city he’s grown up in, with his Liverpool environment contributing to the man he is today. The single holds a strong place in Webster’s heart, offering lyrical payback for the ongoing support he receives from his loyal fans.
