Liverpool-based songwriter Robert Vincent has shared his new single ‘The Insider’, alongside a video starring celebrated actor David Morrissey.

The latest track from Vincent leans into the solemn side of Americana and sees him questioning the idea of dark, overburdening forces that loom large in our lives.

“The Insider, who can you trust?” commented Robert on the theme of the track. “In an age of the despot, the dark, unknown, underhand influence, that casts a shadow over all our lives, Who am I to you?”

Morrissey, who takes a central role in the video, added: ““I do a radio show on Boogaloo Radio with my son Gene and every year we do a roving mic show from the Black Deer Festival. I checked Robert out and immediately loved his sound. We hit it off backstage afterwards, sharing music we loved and vowed to keep in touch, which we did”.

“When he asked me to be in the video of The Insider I jumped at the chance. He is a great talent and it’s a privilege to be part of this latest release” added David on starring in the video.

The song is the first in three year from Vincent, who won the AMA UK Award for his politically charged 2020 album ‘In this Town You’re Owned’, and more music will arrive in the coming months as part of his upcoming new album ‘Barriers’. He is also gearing up to play a one-off special hometown show at Liverpool’s Royal Philharmonic on October 29th.
