With a previous track record for having songs break the Top 10 on Billboard’s Rock Charts, Tyler Edwards scales back his production and focuses on his songwriting for his latest single, “Highway Dust.”
Between bands and solo efforts, Edwards has been releasing music for well over a decade now. He first started his career in 2008 when he wrote and performed in I Anthem, a South Carolina-based rock band that cracked the aforementioned Billboard charts. Their songs would go on to be featured on MTV and NASCAR. Taking all he learned from his stint in I Anthem, Edwards launched his solo career in 2015 with his EP, Too Young for Love.
After a lengthy six years between his last full release, on September 30th, Edwards will release his sophomore LP, A Falling Sky. The album was recorded over a four-year span, and was produced by longtime friend, Jim Stephens, with the help of Neil Hampton, Ryan Freeland, and Kim Rosen.
The first single for the approaching record, “Highway Dust” – which dropped yesterday July 8th – showcases Edwards tender voice and illustrative songwriting ability. Edwards pitch-perfect vocals shine through, and the delicate guitar underneath creates an even gentler atmosphere. The song conjures images of love and tenderness with its overall feel, and acts as a sweet ode to the one you would do anything for, even if the past has not always been perfect.
The song comes accompanied with a lyric music video which features the cover art to the new LP. Edwards has an upcoming show in Metter, Georgia, on July 29th. You can also request a show to be played near you. For a quality singer-songwriter track full of tenderness, “Highway Dust” is on the money, and you can bet his upcoming record will have more of the same.
