If you keep up with Zach and his incredible output of music (or try to, at least), then you know the man has been on a tear this year, releasing his 34-song debut studio album American Heartbreak in May, as well as his Summertime BluesEP last month, in addition to teasing tons of other songs that have yet to be cut in the studio.
He dropped another new song today called “Burn, Burn, Burn,” where he details how, though he enjoys his time out on the road, he really just wants to go home and enjoy a simple life with his friends at the end of the day:
“I want to be a child climbing trees somewhere, Breathing in the fresh, outside air, Before I knew this life was unkind, I want a well-trained dog and on a couple acres, A kind, kind lady and a place to take her, And a few good friends I can count on one of my hands,
I know I’m bound to die one day, So when I reach those golden gates, I pray to say I did the best I can”
It’s classic Zach with personal and meaningful lyrics and a very simple production, but it’s just as great as anything else he’s put out this year, and a very welcome surprise on a regular old Tuesday afternoon.
I can’t really even put into words how amazing it is that he’s releasing such a high volume of quality music at this rate. Love him or hate him, there’s nobody else in the genre doing it like him right now, and that counts for a whole lot in my book.
Though the full studio cut of “Burn, Burn, Burn” isn’t available on streaming platforms quite yet, you can find the entire version up on his YouTube page:
