James Morrison album discount today; U.S. tour starts next month

James Morrison's latest album The Awakening is today's MP3 daily deal on in the U.S. for $3.99. 

This past January, I had an opportunity to check out Morrison during a special invite-only gig at the Sayers Club in Hollywood, Calif. Performing on acoustic guitar with a stellar band (including a drummer on a cocktail kit and two female backing vocalists), his 50-minute set was very soulful and charming.

The Brit made the biggest impact on the funky "Slave to the Music" (which he said was inspired by a dream involving Michael Jackson), the Motown vibe of "Nothing Ever Hurt Like You," quietly dramatic "Person I Should Have Been" and exuberant closer, "Wonderful World."   

Now the BRIT Award-nominated singer James Morrison is gearing up for a full American headlining tour in support of the international chart topping album released through Universal Republic.

Morrison’s third full-length studio effort debuted at #1 in the UK, has sold more than a million copies worldwide and produced a U.S. hit with “I Won’t Let You Go.” The accompanying music video has had more then 19 million views.

On that recent visit to the States in January, Morrison's performance on The Today Show yielded a 661% sales jump for the album.
