Alex will release his new single ‘Hurricane’ tomorrow (Friday 27th March 2020) on A Recordings.
“The new version of Hurricane is how I actually heard the song when I first wrote it. I had this upbeat, 12-string Byrds/Big Star sound in my head. It wasn’t until I slowed it down and lowered the key at a gig, almost by accident, that I decided to record that version on my last album. I wanted this big Clarence Clemons/Bobby Keys-style tenor sax solo during the instrumental. The new reworked version completely changes the feel of the whole song.”
Available digitally worldwide on all major download & streaming platforms.

Alex performed a couple of songs last night at Friendly Records in Bristol as part of the BBC Introducing tour, celebrating ten years of BBC Introducing.
“At times, Lipinski’s voice soars like a young Roy Orbison, at others he can float like Jackson Browne, but it is all his own. He knows what a hook is and goes looking for it in each song, not permitting any padding to make its way into his set. Whatever it is a performer requires to be able to hush a crowd and make it stop and listen, Lipinski has it. Perhaps it’s a poise or, more accurately, a naturalism which is impossible to fake”.
Alex sat down to talk with Jason Holmes from Gigslutz after his recent gig in Camden. Read the full article here: http://goo.gl/2wtQCY
