The Head And The Heart have revealed “Virginia (Wind In The Night)”, the second released track from their forthcoming fifth studio album Every Shade of Blue out April 29th on Reprise/Warner Records.

Jonathan Russell spoke about the inspiration behind the song, saying ​​”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. 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.”

Last month, The Head And The Heart announced the Every Shade of Blue 2022 North American Tour which kicks off May 20th. Special guests joining the band in select cities include Shakey Graves, Dawes and Jade Bird.

Park City Song Summit

Park City, UT

September 8-12, 2021

https://parkcitysongsummit.com/

The Song Summit is the brainchild of Ben Anderson, Park City resident and lifetime musician/founding member of the jamband Aiko. He started the Song Summit to celebrate his passion for music and his personal mission to bring clarity and normalcy to the struggles musicians, artists and music lovers alike face around mental health and dependency. Song Summit is proud to partner with three local charities who are in the trenches every day addressing mental health, suicide prevention and addiction recovery: Communities that Care, Jewish Family Service and Summit Clubhouse.

The Song Summit is a decidedly sideways move away from mass music festivals and the dilution of intimate connections where scale numbs engagement between artists and fans. It seeks to create a retreat for artists where they play their songs and create conversations with audiences around both proven and inspired practices for bolstering creativity and success in music and beyond. September 8-12 in Park City, Utah.
