Wade Bowen scored one of the best albums of 2018 with the release of Solid Ground, an 11-song offering that was produced by Keith Gattis. The gritty collection of tunes—Wade co-wrote 10—serves as a love letter to his home state of Texas by incorporating many of his musical influences, everyone from Guy Clark to ZZ Top.
Wade will release the album on vinyl on May 31, with the addition of a previously unreleased song, “Yours Alone,” which Wade penned with Sean McConnell.
“This song has always been on the back burner for me waiting for an album,” says Wade. “I’ve loved this song since Sean McConnell and I wrote it. It was a tad too happy for the record for the original release but I feel it was maybe the best song on the album. Sometimes we have to cut our favorites to make the album make sense. I’m glad this song is finally being heard by the world. Love the lyrics and maybe my favorite melody I’ve ever had the pleasure writing.”
Listen to “Yours Alone” below.
