California musician Jackie Greene has shared a soulful track called "Trust Somebody" from his upcoming seventh studio album titled Back to Birth. Listen to it above via Jackie Greene's YouTube channel.
In an email with The Wall Street Journal, Jackie discussed the song:
I’ve been trying to write a song like "Trust Somebody" for awhile. I wanted to try and distill some fairly complex ideas about the circular nature of life, love and luck and present them simply with as much honesty as possible.
"Trust Somebody" is a sweeping, emotional track built on grand piano notes, timely rock riffs, and Jackie's warm vocals. Strings and vocal harmonies during the chorus give the song an added punch. Greene's talented songwriting is on full display throughout the song, especially when singing, "Cause even fools like me are wise enough to say / You will have everything when you give everything away." This is our first taste of the new album, and fans (myself included) should be excited to hear more.
Back to Birth was produced by Los Lobos saxophonist Steve Berlin, and is due out on August 21st via Yep Roc Records. Pre-order it on Amazon.
