Will Hoge Previews New Album

Nashville singer/songwriter Will Hoge treated industry friends and guests to a selection of new songs at The Standard on Wednesday (8/17). Hoge’s seventh studio album, Number Seven (Ryko), is due out September 27.

Hoge’s set included Number Seven’s first single, “When I Get My Wings,” a Memphis soul-styled meditation on death. Attendees were also treated to “American Dream,” a mournful take on the plight of the homeless, and domestic lament “Trying To Be A Man.”

“I’m really proud of this album,” says Hoge. “Everything I’ve been through in the last couple of years has caused me to slow down and be more thoughtful about what sort of music I’m putting out. The process of creating music has changed too.  For the first time, I feel like this album really encompasses everything about me as an artist. I’m just ready for everyone to hear it!”

Number Seven is Hoge’s followup to his acclaimed 2009 album The Wreckage, which he recorded after a near fatal traffic accident. That collection’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” has been cut by Eli Young Band for its new album Life At Best, which hit stores August 16.
