This is the latest single from Israel Nash’s new album ‘Ozarker‘, which will arrive in full on October 20th, and it’s as upbeat an hopeful as anyone could wish for – it’s pure heartland rock.   Which is to say that it harkens back to the rock that Nash grew up on — Petty, Springsteen, Seger — with larger-than-life guitars and anthemic melodies, and whose lyrics are similarly cinematic.  “I think the reason so much of that classic heartland rock and roll endures is because it touches on themes we all feel so deeply: desire, struggle, commitment, escape,” says Nash.  “As an artist, I’m always aspiring to touch as many people as possible, and that’s what this music has always represented for me.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
