The Runaway Grooms are premiering a highly anticipated new single, “Heartwork,” right here on Folk N Rock. The song will be released this Friday, and you can pre-save it here. This new single is a mellow jam with some emotionally charged lyrics that are sure to hit home with a lot of listeners. The band has described the song as a reminder that we are not alone in our journey, and that it is alright to ask for a helping hand when we need it.
According to the band, “Heartwork” was inspired by the desire to keep going and to lift the spirits of listeners with an anthem-like revival. The song is a powerful message of positivity, self-love and is dedicated to anyone struggling with mental health issues.
The Band further comments:
“’Heartwork’ is a reminder that we are not alone in this journey, that we have the power to make a change, and that it is perfectly okay to reach out for help. When writing the song, we felt as if it wanted to keep going, and so the song ends with an anthem-like revival that is intended to lift the spirits of the listeners and inspire them to keep working on the heart work!
We dedicate this song to everyone who is struggling with mental health, may it be a reminder of your true potential for positivity, self-love and self-development.”
“Heartwork,” is set to be released on their upcoming album, “This Road,” which is due out on February 10th. The album was recorded on the road at Paloma Sound Studios in Memphis, Tennessee with former Ardent Studio engineer Jeremy Horn, and marks the band’s return to a more American roots rock songwriting style.
Inspired by the jazz-fusion exploration of Steely Dan, Atlanta Rhythm Section, and Yes, as well as the guitar-driven sounds of the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Grateful Dead, “This Road” is a diverse collection of songs that explores a range of emotions and moods drawn from the dramatic narrative of life on the road as a touring band. In addition to its musical influences, the album is also focused on telling stories and sharing wisdom about life, love, and struggle.
