Kevin Morby creates magical music. From a songwriter’s point of view, the craft is ever present. From a listener’s view, the songs hold true from beginning to end. With his new album Sundowner coming next Friday, Morby has released the title track and it’s pretty much all that fans of good music could ask for.
The song has this sheen of road worn traveler to it. Almost as if Morby is channeling every acoustically driven artist before him, the honesty of raw sense of the song hits emphatically. The plucks of the strings that mix with his voice offer a sound that is more like the type you’d hear over a campfire. Morby isn’t stretching too far here, as he’s always written great songs. He just feels like he’s in the right space here.
The song is available to listen to above or on all streaming platforms. Sundowner can be preordered on various formats from Dead Oceans before it releases on October 16. Kevin Morby is performing via livestream October 08 and October 16 at Noonchorus.
