A week before the releases of “The Ides of March,” his second solo album, Myles Kennedy has unveiled the ballad “Love Rain Down.”
The song showcases the softer side of the upcoming album. The genesis of the track has been around for years and is reminiscent of what fans and critics were drawn to on Kennedy’s debut solo album, “Year of the Tiger.” The acoustic introduction builds until the band–drummer Zia Uddin and bassist/manager Tim Tournier–joins in on the second verse and rides out the rest of the track. Lyrically, Myles delivers a plea born out of the longing for answers and solace from all of the dark possibilities of the day as he sings, “Let your love rain down. Let it wash away the sorrows I’ve found.” The song is available via all digital service providers and a lyric visualizer for the song can be seen below.
“Love Rain Down” is the fourth track released from the upcoming Napalm Records album “The Ides of March” (read Live Metal’s review), scheduled for release on May 14, 2021. Pre-order “The Ides of March” here.
