– Blackberry Smoke will release "The Southern Ground Sessions" EP on Oct. 26.
Created as an accompaniment to their new album, "Find A Light," the six-song EP was recorded live at Southern Ground studio in Nashville. The disc features acoustic versions of five album tracks plus their take of Tom Petty's "You Got Lucky" featuring Amanda Shires.
"Run Away From It All" was released today as a stream and video.
Lead singer Charlie Starr said, "It felt really cool to come back to Southern Ground Studios and play music with some good friends. It was like stripping it down and playing in the living room."
The track list is:
1. Run Away From It All
2. Medicate My Mind
3. Let Me Down Easy (featuring Amanda Shires)
4. Best Seat In The House
5. You Got Lucky (featuring Shires)
6. Mother Mountain (featuring Oliver Wood)
Blackberry Smoke is Starr (vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals) and Brandon Still (keyboards).
Since their debut in 2004, the band has independently released six full-length records and has toured heavily.
The band will continue to tour extensively throughout 2018, including two shows at New York's Irving Plaza on Sept. 7 and 8 as well as their newly announced "Brothers and Sisters Holiday Homecoming show" at Atlanta's The Tabernacle on Nov. 23. They will also perform several shows this fall as part of the U.K./European leg of the "Find A Light" tour.
