The Head and the Heart released their latest single “Virginia (Wind In The Night),” the second single off of their upcoming album, Every Shade of Blue. This bittersweet track showcases the band playing to their strengths: a sturdy piano sound garnished with strings and perfectly paired with Jonathan Russell’s evocative lyrics.
Russell drew inspiration for this single from the concept of place and how we interpret the meaning of physical locations.
”Being from Virginia, for me this song represents a long and winding relationship to place – a place that is grounding. I’m often drawing on my life through symbolism as a way into someone else’s psyche,” Russell said in a statement. “It’s part of my search for a deeper connection without having to compare our experiences directly. There is a reason this song has two titles. One is literal and one is symbolic. Not everyone is from Virginia, I know that. But I bet you have walked home and heard the wind in the night.”
To accompany the release of their upcoming April album, The Head and the Heart are hitting the road in late May with Shakey Graves, Dawes, and Jade Bird joining as special guests.
“It’s wild to think that by the time we get back on the road this year, it will have been over 2 and a half years since we last toured,” says the band. “We’re so excited to bring new songs to life on stage every night, traveling alongside artists who inspire us. We can’t wait to get out there, doing what we do with an even greater sense of gratitude.”
The Head and the Heart’s Every Shade of Blue is out on April 29 on Warner Records.
