2020 appears to be another great year for Margo Price if this, her first single from her upcoming album, is any indication.
Recorded in only 8 Days, Aloha, the upcoming record courtesy of Son Little should help this young artist with an old soul reach the larger audience he deserves.
Coming across like sort of a melodic Tom Waits, this Toronto-based singer-songwriter and his observational tales will be on full display with his new record, The Neon Skyline, to be released later in the year.
These guys are simply drenched in Laurel Canyon So-Cal soul. Their self-titled album released in 2017 was a harmony driven classic. Look for a new record in 2020.
Technically released as a single in 2019, this one will get a 2020 nod since it will be included on his record to be released somewhere in the first quarter. “Burn One with John” was one of the first songs that Kacey Musgraves wrote after arriving in Nashville. Since Prine doesn’t smoke, at least now anyway, the song takes on a bit of a different meaning than you would expect.
Brandy Clark has spent much of the past decade writing songs for other people including “Mama’s Broken Heart” for Miranda Lambert and the number one single “Better Dig Two” with The Band Perry. Now, she comes out from behind the quill and goes 80’s ladies with “Who You Thought I Was,” A love song that embodies the theory that everyone is where they are supposed to be. For some, it just takes a little more time.
It is official, we are firmly in the grips of 2020. Our first favorite song of the year comes from Bombay Bicycle Club in advance of a proper record to be released January 17th.
