Paj Announces Summer Mega Collaboration

Paj heads a retro, summery mega-collab featuring Uly, Rob de Boer, Zeenie Summers (Waterboys & Fehdah), Joe Furlong (JV Mc Morrow) & Fiachra Kinder (drums on ‘Take Me To Church’). ‘Superman’ is released this Friday, August 14th 2020.

The first Paj release of 2020, ‘Superman’ comes with an all-star lineup and a 70’s throwback chorus that recalls Lee Fields & Curtis Mayfield. 

Collaborating under quarantine, Uly lent his trumpet, Rob de Boer & Zeenie Summers their vocals, Joe Furlong his bass and Fiachra Kinder his drums to Paj’s vocals, guitars & keys.

To celebrate the release of ‘Superman’ Paj has announced he will perform a very intimate show in The Workman’s Club, 27th August.

‘Superman’ is a song that acknowledges the pressure that we put on ourselves:

“Everybody wants to be a superman, everybody wants to be the best they can

Borrowing the phrase from cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) made popular by Blindboy Boatclub; “I’m no better than no-one else, and no-one’s better than me” the lyrics offer a catchy mantra of self-love and watching out for one another.

‘Superman’ reminds you to go gently because everyone has a private battle.

Paj has previously supported Billy Idol, M People, Hiatus Kaiyote, Taylor McFerrin & Thundercat while working with artists Loah, Martin Hayes, Fehdah & Ensemble Eriu, and has performed in USA & Portugal with subsequent Eurovision song contest winner (2017) & Universal Artist Luisa Sobral.
