Here is the wonderfully characterful voice of Justin Wells, who tells it like it is on latest single ‘No Time for a Broken Heart’. When he sings: “I’d like to lie and tell you it gets better // We don’t all fall apart sometime,” there’s wit and wisdom in the delivery. It’s the latest single from new album ‘The United State’, which is due for release on 28th August on Need To Know Music. Wells talks about songs from the album and more in an exclusive video premiere. It’s a fascinating commentary on the record and an insight into his songwriting.
As he explains, ‘The United State’ is about the, “…sequences of life.” Such themes of love and death run through all the best music and resonate universally. He says, “This record starts in the womb, and it ends after death,” and these are shared experiences we can all relate to. Look out for the album, which is the follow-up to his highly-regarded solo debut, ‘Dawn in the Distance’. In the meantime, check out this tongue-in-cheek video.
