Listen to the first new track from the Scottish singer songwriter, which was given a worldwide exclusive on Radio X this week.
Gerry Cinnamon has shared the official audio for his Canter single this week, which he confirmed means "easy peasy" to Scots.
Revealing the story behind the track, which is already a big hit at his live shows, Cinnamon told Radio X's Gordon Smart: "It's an upbeat tune. It's just one of those tunes I try and drop some knowledge bombs."
He added: "When I was a wee guy I was always trying to look for a bit of Gold in a song, for a bit of advice, so I think it's me just talking to myself."
"I wrote this a couple of weeks before the Barrows [Glasgow Barrowlands], and it's just one of them that's demanded [at gigs]. Same thing happened with Belter."

Asked about new music in general, he revealed to Gordon Smart: "I've been getting a bit of writing done, a bit of recording done and I just want to get out as much new music as I can before I end up spontaneously combusting."
