It’s been one year since Eli Young Band released their “Turn It On” EP and now the guys are working on a new project due out later this year. We got a sneak preview of eleven new songs that EYB fans are going to love!
- “Like a Heart”
- “Old Songs”
- “Skin and Bones”
- “Days I Feel Alone”
- “God Love the Rain”
- “Never Again”
While many of the songs have the up-tempo, catchy vibe that fans are used to hearing on the radio (“Like a Heart” fits that mold), the guys also venture into new territory.
“Saltwater” sounds like a folk gospel tune, tying together the spirituality of the ocean with traditional religion.
The band’s lyrical devotion to the craft of making music has been evident throughout their career, with songs like “Always the Love Songs” and “Even if it Breaks Your Heart” showing glimpses into the soul of musicians. Continuing with that trend is “Old Songs,” which reminds us why nostalgic tunes are so impactful.
If fans are looking for something with an edge, this project offers that, too. “Fingerprints” is a dark, rock-driven track with a lot of grit to it.
While fans will still be able to recognize Mike Eli’s signature lead vocal, the new songs are definitely taking the band in a new musical direction.
