If you’re still sleeping on Arlo McKinley, it’s time to wake your ass up.
The Ohio-native is one of the most talented and captivating songwriters in the business right now, and his 2020 album Die Midwestern found its way near the top of many year-end “best” lists, including our own here at Whiskey Riff.
But today, Arlo digitally re-released his debut album Arlo McKinley & The Lonesome Sound, and the release included a new bonus track.
Titled “Wishing,” it was a song that was recorded for the 2014 album, but it never made the final cut.
“‘Wishing’ is a song from the ‘And The Lonesome Sound’ period that did not make the record… I’m happy that I can share with you the final story of that chapter in my life. I hope you enjoy.”
