Sammy Kay is gearing up to release his fourth album ‘civil/War‘ on October 4th, from which ‘Sweet Cecilia‘ is taken. It’s an almost love song that grapples with addictions and a refusal to face up to the world and resolves into a gruff carpe diem: “Say your prayers and count your scars, in the end the only way to live your life is to really live it”.
Sammy Kay also has an upcoming very limited 7″ vinyl release (50 copies, order here) of “Thoughts & Prayers” b/w “Forgotten Ones“. It can be bought digitally too, of course, and all proceeds are going to The Brady Fund and Everytown For Gun Safety. It fits with a comment Kay made about the album – “This album made me think about who I was and how I could be a better person. We’re all just trying to be the best people we can be.”
He’s bringing his music to the UK in October, starting off in London on October 10th.
