New York Doesn't Love You:
single based on social media hell

The new single is based on a pretty damn modern true story. 'Boy sees girl from afar, boy stalks girl on Facebook, realises she's got a boyfriend already but, undaunted, moves his stalking over to another platform and is confronted by the Twitter name that inspired the single 'New York Doesn't Love You"'. Taking this as the signal to stop, boy logs off rapidly and writes a slamming guitar-pop track instead! The girl still doesn't know that one of John Wean has a crush on her. Still, what are the chances of her finding out? Ah. 'New York Doesn't Love You' is released on 19 March 2012 on The Dinky Record Company and was mixed by Grammy? winner Tom Lord-Alge.

The Scottish band travelled to Manhattan to shoot the video for the single and are putting the finishing touches to the forthcoming debut album which is being produced by Ewan Davies [producer of the debuts from Arctic Monkeys, Darkness and Editors]. The album is being mixed by Mark Lewis, the mix engineer for the legendary Trevor Horn, who has worked with the likes of Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake and Adele. The album will be mastered by John Davies [U2, Paul Weller, Led Zeppelin and Lady Gaga to name but a few].

Hailed as "the best thing to come out of Uddingston since the Tunnock's Tea Cake" and as one of the "Tips For 2012" in the Scottish Sun, John Wean swagger into 2012 with all guns blazing and recently took part in Live Nation's Live Connection initiative.

No strangers to the live circuit - with shows on both sides of the border in the last few weeks ? or indeed the airwaves, John Wean are on a mission. The line up of Conor Cartwright [vocals / guitar], Stuart Anderson [guitar], Jude Smith [vocals / bass] and Simon Coakley [drums] are here to stay.
