Smith & Myers have released dual songs from their newly-announced full-length album Smith & Myers Volume 2 out October 23 via Atlantic Record.
Smith & Myers – the duo comprised of multi-platinum artists Brent Smith and Zach Myers – have released dual songs from their newly-announced full-length album Smith & Myers Volume 2 out October 23 via Atlantic Records, that will follow the release of Volume 1 on October 9. Original track “Bad At Love” is a vulnerable and personal song about the difficulties of staying in a romantic relationship when you have a gypsy heart, full of clean guitar coils and finger-snaps, and is accompanied by a brand new video directed by Sanjay Parikh.
“Bad At Love” is paired with the release of a grungy, re-imagined version of Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy.”
“‘Bad At Love’ was one of the very first original songs to be written for the project. I think ultimately the song was born from my own romantic relationships. When I love someone, I love them fully, and sometimes the passion can be too much. I always know when it’s time to move on. That being said, I am extremely grateful that I am still very good friends with the ladies I have loved, and still love, to this day,” shares Brent.
“‘Bad at Love’ was one of the first original songs we wrote for this album … lyrically Brent was writing about things in his life that maybe we wouldn’t really touch on with Shinedown and I think it came out to be an incredibly naked and honest song. And I think ‘Bad Guy’ turned out very cool – it’s a nice bluesy version of the song,” says Zach.
The new songs and the announcement of Volume 2 comes on the heels of Smith & Myers’ recent release of their original single “Not Mad Enough,” which was written in the immediate aftermath of George Floyd’s death, expressing the intense emotions that followed and laying bare a plea for racial justice through direct and urgent lyrics over acoustic guitar.
