LISTEN: Jim James and Teddy Abrams Visit Cinematic Glory With “Back to the End of the World”

From their forthcoming record Jim James, the Louisville Orchestra and their music director Teddy Abrams have released their second single, “Back to the End of the World.” Check it out below…

“This is a song about trying not to live in the past…trying to stay awake…live in the present,” says Jim James. “We all get hung up on nostalgia sometimes and phew it can be fun(and tough) but we gotta be constantly trying to live our best life NOW-for ourselves… for the people we love… for the planet… for all things!”

Teddy Abrams says, “I’m particularly proud of this orchestration and setting of Jim’s song, which references many different genres and styles of music. It starts off with a very odd combination —a kind of Spanish guitar slow-dance with a theremin solo! There’s a little reference to Ravel’s famous Bolero in the snare drum and cello pizzicato, plus plenty of canonic and contrapuntal writing to provide a classical edge.”
