Southern soul-pop artist Parson James has just released his new single, titled “Temple”. The powerfully uplifting and insightful soul-pop song is now available at all digital providers and will also be featured on the upcoming Now That’s What I Call Music, Vol. 56.
With heavy religious undertones and tales from the deep-south, James draws inspiration from his life growing up amongst the Bible belt as an openly gay teen in a bi-racial family. Subject to criticism and isolation in his hometown, James sought solace in his songwriting. “Temple” explores such experiences and reflections.
The 24-year-old singer-songwriter recently made his television debut when he performed “Stole The Show” with Norwegian DJ Kygo on CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden. The single, co-written by James, has already garnered more than 274-million streams on Spotify.
