Manchester-based artist Mike Dignam shows us the inevitable addiction that comes with heartbreak in his new single “Under The Influence” – a soulful balladry built on taut production where Mike’s vocal prowess adds flavor to it. Through chest-expansive choruses, Mike walks us through the emotional hot mess we step into when we turn for substance abuse to remedy heartache. Watch the video below:

On the new single, Mike shared:

“‘Under The Influence’ was entirely self-produced so I’m unbelievably proud of it.   It’s the first record I’ve ever produced and I’ve since gone on to produce my entire album, which will be out early 2020.

Having been away for nearly 3 years now, it feels more important to me than anything I’ve put out so far, and definitely my best works to date.  The song is about the idea of heartbreak having control over you, like alcohol or substance abuse, a drug and asking to be excused for out of character actions because this feeling has completely taken over.”
