Shane Smith & the Saints surprise dropped the latest track off their forthcoming album Norther, and the sweet piano ballad will choke you up this Wednesday. “All The Way” highlights the ups and downs of a long relationship and how you stand by your love no matter what is thrown at you.
“‘All The Way’ is more than just a song to us—it’s a journey. Co-written with my wife, it’s a departure from our live-show sound, but its timeless feel makes it one of our favorites.
Lauren had been re-listening to Johnny Cash’s last album before he’d passed away, and she brought up the concept of doing a Johnny Cash-inspired lullaby. The concept of enduring love resonated deeply, much like our grandparents’ 60+ year marriages and our journey since age 15.
We kept the recording simple and completely broken down, with me singing and our producer Beau Bedford on piano.. like a lullaby you can repeat without much distraction away from the story and the lyrics. We’re beyond proud and humbled to get to share it with everyone and hope that it connects with all of you in a deep and meaningful way.”
Accompanying the sweet track, Shane Smith & the Saints had been asking fans to submit home movie clips for a music video, and with the single’s release, it was revealed the submissions were for this track. The vintage-inspired video highlights clips of love that have lasted over the decades and makes the already meaningful song hit harder.
The stripped-back melody highlights Smith’s soft yet strong vocals as he gingerly delivers the loving lyrics.
“But I’m still yours and you’re still mine Through the fading ends of time Despite burdens deep below I’ll be with you as you go All the way, Lord all the way I’ll be with you all the way…”
Johnny Cash would be proud to listen to this song that he inspired. This is a refreshing tempo change compared to what Smith typically releases, and I already can’t get enough.
If this doesn’t get you fired up for what else Norther has to offer, I’m not sure what will. Turn this one up; you’ll instantly fall in love.
