SHOULD HAVE LIED - New Single Release by Jim McHugh 

14th of August 2020 

Should Have Lied is the newly minted single from Co. Monaghan singer songwriter Jim McHugh.  In an original twist on the age-old song of apologetic remorse, Should Have Lied unveils the singer’s regret following a misguided act of truth telling.  With a catchy melody and driving rock & roll licks, the song will have listeners grooving and shaking along to this unabashed story of a romantic blunder.   

This single is Jim’s first offering since the release of his highly praised album My Nuclear Radio in 2019.  Album single My Mandalay featured on the ‘RTÉ RADIO 1 recommends’ playlist in Nov/Dec 2019, and was the ‘LMFM All Out Local Song Choice’ for March 2019.  Single Everything’s Cool was Roddie Cleere’s ‘Song of the Week’ on KCLR in August 2018 while Avenue Road and Marjorie were widely played at home and abroad.   

Should Have Lied was recorded, produced and mixed by Alex Borwick (Parliament Funkadelic, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Sput Searight, Lankum) at Avenue Road Studios, Dublin and mastered by Fergal Davis (Sinéad O’Connor/Muse). 

Should Have Lied features Jim McHugh on Vocals/Backing Vocals/Piano, Acoustic and Electric Guitar, Paul McCabe on Bass, Butch McNeill on Drums and Alex Borwick on Trombone. 

Jim will perform a special  Facebook live online gig to celebrate the release on August 20th. Details will be announced soon.
