G. Love is set to release a solo album called Sugar on April 22nd, 2014. The first single is a song called "Nothing Quite Like Home" that was written with Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds and recorded with Ben Harper. G. Love (birth name Garrett Drew Dutton) told the story of how the song came together and performed it live at Relix solo acoustic on guitar and harmonica. Watch the YouTube video above.
The song was first done as an instrumental by G. Love & Special Sauce, then it was sent to Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds, who wrote the lyrics and made a demo in just 6 hours. The band enlisted Ben Harper to contribute vocals in the studio. The official music video was released last month.
You can pre-order Sugar via Brushfire Records.
