In advance of the release, the group shared the first single off the new set, “Lose My Mind,” a R&B-laden bluesy track with their signature harmonies.
“[The song] is about friendship, family, and my best friend. When I am at my highest and lowest, he’s always been the one to remind me who I am and who I want to be,” Lee said in a statement. “I spent years working on this song to help it find its true form. We got into the live room at the end of a long day, and kept on playing it over and over in different ways, with different feels, in all of the forms that I wrote and rewrote for three years. This is the farthest version of the song that I would have imagined, but this is the most satisfied I have ever felt with a song that I have written. The freedom of the studio helped me find a voice in this song that I never knew I had."
The group’s previous album The World We Built -- their first major-label release -- debuted and peaked at No. 22 on the Americana/Folk Albums chart and No. 25 on the Heatseekers Albums chart (both dated April 29, 2017).
The Wild Reeds have been busy on tour this year with Shakey Graves, Gregory Alan Isakov and The Lone Bellow.
