Following the release of his introspective ballad “Karma Plays” featuring Baby Rose, singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist McClenney teases fans with another taste of his upcoming album. His new single “Give Me Time” is soothing in its intensity, with its pulsing percussion paired with brilliant guitar work. Though his delivery is delicate and the lyrics are kept to a minimum, his Fender picks up where words leave off, capturing every bit of the tune’s passionate energy.
The accompanying self-directed visual further capitalizes on the warmth and intimacy of the track. We watch McClenney alone and outside amid a lush, natural backdrop armed with only his instrument. An artist in every sense of the word, the visual is fitting, as McClenney is known for crafting every detail of his work in order to bring forth his vision. Despite the beauty of his surroundings, he remains the focal point as he loses himself in the melody and radiates with raw emotion.
Listen to McClenney’s “Give Me Time,” watch the video and be sure to add the track to your collection from your preferred digital platform. Though there’s no official word on when the new project will drop, his social media posts indicate that McClenney is always working. Whether gifting fans with previews of his own music or adding his touch to classics from the likes of Prince, Thundercat or D’Angelo, it’s clear that his talent knows no bounds. Never one to rush the process, we’ll continue to wait and enjoy these gems in this meantime.
