Today we’re bringing you a first listen to the sophomore single from Nashville based duo, Goldpine. The track ‘When I get to Heaven’ starts off as a folksy toe-tapper, but quickly turns into a soulful hand clapping sing-along anthem. The song is set to officially be released tomorrow, August 5th.
One can look at the track as speaking as both figurative and literal. Whether your heaven is a vacation getaway, or the afterlife, you’re probably excited to be making plans about what you’re going to be doing once you arrive, and this song conveys that excitement. Or as the duo talked about the inspiration behind ‘When I get to Heaven’ by saying:
“Sometimes, when I’m looking for rest in the midst of life’s hustle, I picture myself under this magnificent tree, just laying down in the grass.” “It’s a heavenly place, where the atmosphere is at such peace and comfort…I’m reclining and in absolute rest there. Ben
“My mama passed away a year ago, and when I think about our song ‘When I Get to Heaven,’ I think about her. I find comfort in knowing I’ll see her again one day.” Kassie
The song will be featured on the band’s upcoming self-produced debut LP, “One,” which is set to be released on August 26th 2022.
More From Goldpine
Americana act Goldpine was built by married couple Benjamin and Kassie Wilson (formerly called “My One and Only”). From festivals like 30A Songwriting Festival and Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion to listening rooms throughout the United States, Goldpine has been offering their own brand of raw Americana to audiences large and small.
Finalists in the Kerrville Folk Fest 2021 New Folk Competition, the duo’s bold harmonies are clearly a channel for their highly charged songwriting. Exposing the pains of severed relationships and unearthing the pursuits of love and purpose, Goldpine is cathartic, moody, raucous, and relevant all wrapped into one.
Touring since 2015, they have been lessening the gap between music and the audience by disclosing their stories behind the lyrics at every venue along the way.
