Just one week out from its release, Cory Branan has posted another track from his new album Adios, the driving, sunny “I Only Know.”
Branan’s myriad musical roots converge in the hopeful romp, which – true to punk form – clocks in at less than two minutes. One part country and one part power pop, the track notably features Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace and Philadelphia punk band the Loved Ones’ Dave Hause, both of whom lend backing vocal duties on the song’s giant, determined, which toasts to moving forward in the face of life’s difficulties. Listen below.
Rolling Stone Country premiered another Adios track, “Imogene,” in January. Other guests on the album include Amanda Shires, Nashville bassist James Haggerty, and former Deer Tick drummer Robbie Crowell. Branan and company recorded Adios at Tweed Studios in Oxford, Mississippi.
Adios is out via Bloodshot Records on April 7th.
