What For

"So Many Ways" is a single by Mancunian band James, released in July 1986 by Sire Records, the second after the band defected from Factory Records. The record was released in two different versions, as 7" single and 12" EP, with different artworks by John Carroll. So Many Ways and Withdrawn were taken straight from James's debut album, Stutter and the third a slightly longer take on another album track, Just Hip.

This was the first James single to have a promotional video, which was set in a large wheat field.

The band was dissatisfied with the choice of this song as a single, feeling the track Johnny Yen from the album would have been more suitable. [1]
