Acoustic singer songwriter Blair Jollands makes his new track 'My Way Home' available as a free download ahead of the release of his forthcoming third album, which is as yet unnamed and due out this summer (2014) through glowb Records.
The video for the track seems like a brief overview of his world travels, featuring sandy beaches, swimming pools, Buddha statues, exotic flowers, snowy woodlands and a baby thrown in there for added cuteness. Though there is an unexpected sense of melancholy about the repetitive acoustic melody, it feels generally to be a calming song in the face of returning to what you know and what is familiar; a theme that befits the country twang of the song with its echoing whistles and raw vocals.
'My Way Home' is not the only song on Jollands' upcoming album to touch on themes of travel and a nomadic lifestyle. The rest of the album is apparently also a summary of his many cultural experiences and follows on from his previous two offerings 'Hotel' and 'Violent Love'. The first single from the new album is 'Carve it Up', a summery track which is due for release later this summer on June 30th 2014.
