Old Dominion are offering fans new music with the reveal of several unreleased tracks that never made it onto their three albums. Over the past several weeks, the country act has shared some older songs on Instagram and explained why they didn’t make the final cut.
On Friday (April 10), the band posted a snippet of a heart-wrenching breakup ballad called “Goes Without Sayin'.” Frontman Matthew Ramsey’s vocals are emotive as he sings of no longer being able to say I love you to his girl. “How could it just disappear/ I don’t know how we got here/ Broke without breaking/ Drunk without drinking/ They don’t tell you when your time is up/ I guess sometimes love goes without saying/ Goes without saying goodbye,” he croons on the song’s chorus alongside soaring electric guitar.
“Time for another unheard OD song. This is an oldie. We recorded this when we were making our independent EP that ultimately turned into Meat and Candy,” the band captions the song on Instagram. “In the end we just felt like it didn’t fit the project. Check it out ‘Goes Without Sayin'.”
