Live and unplugged.

Ernest is putting out a live album with audio from his Salvage Sessions and Circle Sessions series called ERNEST & The Fellas Unplugged, which will be available both on streaming platforms and as limited release double-sided vinyl.

He released Flower Shops (The Album): Two Dozen Roses in February of this year, and followed it up with some cool, stripped back live performances videos from the aforementioned two series with songs from the deluxe record, which I really enjoyed because I always love hearing a song in its purest, most simple form.

Ernest says with his fall headlining tour gearing up to kick off, he wanted to close out the Flower Shops era with live version of some of his bands personal favorites to play out on the road:

“‘FLOWER SHOPS’ has been such a wild ride. I can’t put words to how much the love and support for the album and its deluxe means to me.

Now that we’re getting ready to be back out on the road headlining this fall, it only felt right that the fellas and I wrap up this chapter with live versions of some of our favorites to play live.”

The tracklist features fan-favorites like “This Fire,” “What I Have I got To Lose,” and even his cover of John Mayer’s “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room” from the Circle Sessions series.

ERNEST & The Fellas Unplugged is due out soon on September 29th, and you can see the full tracklist below.
