Emerging Singer/Songwriter Partland Set to Release New Single ‘Don’t Shoot Me Those Baby Blues’

August 23, 2022

Partland is the stage name of Galway based singer songwriter and artist Thomas McPartland.

Partland has gigged in various countries such as Canada, Germany, France, Scotland and England over the years, including support slots with the likes of Damien Dempsey, Ham Sandwich, Picturehouse and Heathers.

His first album, ‘Sing Me to Shore’ was released in Summer ’16, and was featured as Internationally renowned songwriter Charlie McGettigan’s Album of the Month on his radio show.

Forthcoming album ‘The Empty Atlantic’ will come with quite a unique feature, in that the songwriter has also created a music video for each song. This gives an extra cinematic dimension into the storytelling of each song, creating a visual world in addition to the listening experience.

Partland is now set to unleash his soothing, infectious and heart-wrenching new single ‘Don’t Shoot Me Those Baby Blues’ on August 26th 2022.

A love note to Galway, the song and also the music video tells the tale of bumping into an ex-girlfriend randomly and proceeding to have a catch up conversation, reminiscing on the good times. But before you can muster up the courage to ask to go for a coffee and catch up properly, you realise you’ve walked her to her new boyfriend’s house. The baby blues in question refers to the girl’s eyes. The male character concedes she has moved on and is ready to accept that, just as long as she doesn’t shoot him the look that he fell in love with in the first place with her baby blue eyes. The song and video in Galway city and feature many of the city’s landmarks and trademarks.
