If you’re not familiar with Alex Williams, he had a helluva debut in 2017 with Better Than Myself, but it seems like Big Machine didn’t know what to do with him as there wasn’t much traction after that.
But now, he’s going the independent route and gearing up to release his next studio album, Waging Peace, set for October 21st.
With that being said, the up-and-comer released a kickass new single, titled “No Reservations.”
“I wrote this song with my friend and fantastic singer songwriter Mando Saenz a few years ago.
Basically a song about maneuvering through all the troubles and trials that come with this line of work on the road, meanwhile embracing taking the good with the bad and discovering the pure joy that comes from being able to play music for a living.”
The song is all about a musician that’s practically roaming the streets, motel hopping and playing dive bar after dive bar in hopes that one day he’ll end up at the right place at the right time, and make it big.
It’s a high energy boot stomper about looking at a tough situation with the best possible mindset, and you can blast it anywhere from taking a drive with the windows down, to cranking it up on the speaker with the boys on a Friday night.
The single is the first glimpse of Williams’ upcoming sophomore Waging Peace album, which he says is a personal album about the trials and tribulations of hitting rock bottom, and clawing his way back to the top.
