Gavin James simply wants to play music.
Clash caught the Irish songwriter last year, playing an epic show at Dublin's Olympia venue.
Staying to chat with fans, Gavin then high-tailed it to his favourite after hours pub, where he played a raucous live session with some close friends.
Setting his sights on the UK, the Irish singer has confirmed plans for a lengthy nationwide tour this Autumn.
As a precursor, Clash has nabbed a live video of Gavin James performing 'Bitter Pill'. It's a wonderful, tender clip, shot at London's KOKO venue and captured in pristine quality.
Gavin comments: "'Bitter Pill' was actually the last song written for the album and now it's my favourite song to single live especially at the larger gigs when I get to play it with the band."
Watch it now.
