"I Need" is a song by Irish singer Maverick Sabre, from his debut studio album Lonely Are the Brave. It was released on 4 November 2011 as a digital download in the United Kingdom.

Music video[edit]

A music video to accompany the release of "I Need" was first released onto YouTube on 16 September 2011 at a total length of four minutes and two seconds.[1] In the video, Stafford travels back to his native town of New Ross. The video features many locals of the town and places like 'Aladdins cave' and 'New Ross Crystal'.

Reception[edit]

Robert Copsey of Digital Spy gave the song a positive review stating:

Not that there is much in the way of propaganda here, as little more than strings, drums and an electric organ play out over Sabre's self-penned words about remembering the good ol' days. "I need blue skies/ I need them old times/ I need something good," he rap-sings is his inimitable twang on a gravelly chorus that burrows deeper into your brain with each listen. Don't worry mate, we have a sneaking suspicion that things will pick up again very soon. 4/5 stars.[2]
