This Week’s New River Music

Title: Letter To Lady J
Artist: Dispatch
Album: Location 13
Released: 2018
Shortly after Dispatch’s recent album, America, Location 12, they continued to release more new music – which we LOVE. This single, Letter To Lady J, written as a letter to Lady Justice, the song works as a dichotomy – painting a picture of a grim and broken justice system, coupled with an uplifting and poignant melody that you won’t be able to get out of your head.

Title: Power Over Me
Artist: Dermot Kennedy
Album: Power Over Me – Single
Released: 2018
This is Dermot’s newest single, Power Over Me. “The whole song started with just that one idea, that sole lyric of ‘you’ve got that power over me,'” Kennedy explained. “The idea of being totally bewitched by somebody, to be totally under their spell, in a really good way. Just totally enamored.” He’s certainly got power over us, because we are loving the song!

Title: Shame, Shame, Shame
Artist: Lake Street Dive
Album: Free Yourself Up
Released: 2018
Shame, Shame, Shame is one of the more political songs on Lake Street Dive’s recent album, Free Yourself Up. Bass player, Bridget Kearney, states, “It’s been cool to see the reactions at shows because we’ve never done that before and didn’t know how the crowd would react. For Shame Shame Shame, there’s a part at the end where we say “change is coming oh yeah”—that’s meant to be an empowering chorus that people can sing along to and now we’re seeing that at shows.” You can catch them New Years Eve at the Wang Theatre!

Title: Party Of One
Artist: Brandi Carlile w/Sam Smith
Album: By The Way, I Forgive You
Released: 2018
This single is originally from Brandi’s most recent album, By The Way, I Forgive You, except this version of it she duets with Sam Smith. In a statement, Carlile said that “Party of One” “is a song about deep and enduring compassion. It’s about trying to navigate domesticity, love and particularly marriage whilst being willed to fail by those that would revoke that right if they could.”
“I am so excited for everyone to have this song in their ears and hearts,” Smith added. “Working with Brandi Carlile is truly one of the highlights of my career. Her voice and songwriting get me through the dark days.”
