Music Video: The Waterboys – Beautiful Now

Mike Scott James Maddock Rockwood

I’ve you’ve seen James Maddock over the past few years, chances are you’ve heard James and his band play the song Beautiful Now.  It turns out that song is actually a co-write between James and Mike Scott of The Waterboys.  The photo above was taken at The Rockwood Music Hall one night a few years ago with Mike Scott and Waterboys violinist Steve Wickham joining James at a show.

Beautiful Now will be on Modern Blues, the new Waterboys album which is being released next week.  Recorded in Nashville, it was produced by Mike Scott and mixed by Bob Clearmountain.  It sounds quite a bit different from the version James has been performing.
