Love and Theft are plowing ahead with the release of “Whiskey On My Breath,” the first single from their upcoming album of the same name. The song is currently available on iTunes or for streaming on People.com.
“In some ways, we’ve played it safe in the past, and I think we’re over that now,” says the duo’s Stephen Barker-Liles. “I don’t mind that songs like ‘Whiskey On My Breath’ may be a little controversial, because they’re honest, and I think that they’ll make people think about how they feel about life.”
Following a recent departure from Sony Music Nashville, the duo still has powerful team members intact including Vector Management, and is self-releasing its third album Feb. 10, 2015.
“The songs on this album show a side of us that’s legitimately us, and how we’ve grown up and matured in the time that we’ve been in this business,” continues Love & Theft’s Eric Gunderson. “But there are plenty of songs on this album that are just good, fun songs, and that’s still a side of us too.”
The duo’s hits include “Angel Eyes” and “Runaway.” They have cross-country tour dates scheduled through June 2015.
