Troy Petty, “First”
‘First’ is a bright and catchy acoustic based ode to good luck. Building from a single vocal and subtle organ chord, the tune picks up strumming and arpeggio guitars and a carefully placed rhythm section. Petty belts out confessions of being down on his luck before being swept up and inspired to admit a heartfelt declaration of love.. The single drops on March 15th under German label Dachshund Records.
“First” is the 4th and final single from the forthcoming album “Director’s Cut” before the Lp’s release. An album that travels the spectrum of Petty’s past and present influences from indie/alternative through acoustic and experimental pop. The Chicago native joined three-time Grammy nominated drummer and producer, Ken Coomer, to record the full length album. Coomer, ex- Wilco, Uncle Tupelo fame, also played the drums. “DIrector’s Cut” is due for release in May 2019 followed by intensive European dates through the fall.
