Lydia Loveless has released a new track, ‘Runway’, lifted from the Ohio singer-songwriter’s upcoming album Nothing’s Gonna Stand in My Way Again. It follows lead cut ‘Toothache’, and you can listen to it below.
“This was one of the very first songs I wrote for this record,” Loveless said in a statement. “I hated it, but my friend Amy was giving me assignments and pushing me to write my way through heartache while I was crashing on her couch. She would send me out with a notebook and tell me not to come back until I had something.”
“Eventually, this one grew on me and is now actually my favorite to sing on the whole record,” she continued. “It’s deeply personal and gut-wrenching to perform. It’s about not wanting my relationship to end but knowing things weren’t ever going to improve. I’m especially proud of the instrumentation, particularly the guitar part at the end that had everyone calling me Mark Knopfler when I came out of the booth.”
Nothing’s Gonna Stand in My Way Again arrives September 22 via Bloodshot.
