is the first new music from James since his last two singles “Love
Me Bad” and “Stand Up” were released in 2011. “Love
Me Bad” cracked the Top 30 at Hot AC/Top 40 radio while the
anthemic NFL rock single “Stand Up” landed in the Top
20. “Stand Up” was an official NFL anthem used on jumbotrons
nationwide during the NFL’s 2011-12 seasons. Both tracks were
featured on his debut release Memories Of A Beautiful Disaster
which debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Rock Album chart
and #36 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album chart. MOAB has sold over
120,000 copies to date and was named one of Billboard’s Best
Rock Albums of 2012.
“Parachute” showcases new territory for James leaning more on sing-a-long choruses with crisp pop-rock hooks while still letting his powerful and energetic voice shine. “Parachute was the 10th song I wrote for the new album and as soon as we finished in the studio I knew it had to be the first single. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it” said James. “Parachute” will be available on iTunes on November 22, 2013 and will impact Hot AC & Top 40 radio in January 2014.
