If you need me, I’ll be spinning this new Billy Strings record all damn day.
That’s right people, the Grammy winning, guitar picking, bluegrass extroidonaire from Lansing, Michigan, has released a brand new album titled Renewal today, and if you’re not listening to it, you’re doing it wrong. Plain and simple.
Last night, Billy kicked things off with a livestream listening party, featuring a run through the entire album, plus a band question and answers session. The listening party also featured behind the scene footage from inside the studio.
And if you missed it, you can watch it in its entirety right… HERE.
“I listen to this album now and it’s emotional. I could sit there and tweak it forever, but there’s a point where it’s like building a house of cards.
Yeah, I could add an extra tower on top, but it might collapse. I’ve always doubted myself, and I still do, but this album makes me think, ‘Hey, you’re doing all right, kid. You just need to keep going.’”
Billy also released a trippy new music video for “Heartbeat Of America.”
