Imelda May, Noel Gallagher ask for “Just One Kiss”

With The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood on guitar.

Imelda May has unveiled the video for “Just One Kiss,” her collaboration with Noel Gallagher and The Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood.

The track pairs May’s signature rockabilly-style vocals with Gallagher’s as Wood shreds it out on guitar. The song is anchored by the echoing chorus over Wood’s bluesy riffs: “Just one kiss / But what could come from this / Mammalian.”

“That moment you know it can go either way,” May says of the song in a statement, as per NME. “The sharp notion if you succumb you might just lose control. The split-second decision you know might change everything, with just one kiss. Could you resist?”


According to Stereogum, the seeds of the collaboration were sown after May texted Gallagher. Wood, on the other hand, is a longtime friend of May’s. The two first met when they shared a stage in a Dublin blues basement back when May was only 16.

“Just One Kiss” is a cut off May’s forthcoming album, 11 Past the Hour, due out on April 23. It will be the Irish singer-songwriter’s sixth studio album and the follow-up to 2017’s Life Love Flesh Blood.
