Morgan Wade is dropping an expanded deluxe version of her Arista Nashville debut Reckless on Jan. 28. The yearning new track “Run” is available now.
Co-produced by Jason Isbell + the 400 Unit guitarist Sadler Vaden and Paul Ebersold, Reckless (Deluxe Edition) offers six additional tracks, pulling in a scalding read on Elvis Presley’s “Suspicious Minds,” Wade’s first release “The Night,” and some of the other songs that were in the conversation around Reckless’ sample of life as a passionate, tattooed 20-something struggling against a rapidly changing world.
“Honestly, the more exposed I am, the better it makes me feel,” admits Wade. “There are a million fake people out there, and who needs more of those? Who listens to them? Or believes it? If you’re struggling, and you put it out there, people actually say, ‘I really connected with (whatever the content).’ In making other people feel less alone, somehow I’m less alone. So I give away my feelings, then I get a sense I’m not the only one.”
Reckless topped Rolling Stone Country’s 25 Best Country and Americana Albums list, and her debut single at country radio, “Wilder Days” landed on both TIME and Rolling Stone magazine’s 10 Best and 50 Best Songs of the Year.
