New Music | Joe Purdy – New Years Eve

If there was ever a stirring song that could shake you to the core, it’s Joe Purdy’s newest, “New Years Eve.” Written as a reflection of the year past, and looking to the future, it’s a shining example of pure optimism in songwriting form, and I’ll be damned if I don’t agree with every god damn word of it. This call for hope, peace and unity carries a torch of the 60’s movements, and sounds like it came recorded on a tape and sat and gathered dust somewhere in a basement at Stax. Good luck not putting it on repeat.

The single plays on Purdy’s upcoming album, Who Will Be Next?, out June 10th, and if it’s like the single in question, it will be a reminder that humanity can be written into the dna of a song, and Purdy solidified as a quintessential folk singer.
