Exclusive Premiere: The Drunken Hearts Share ‘Broken Things’ Off Forthcoming Album
On March 30, Americana/rock quintet The Drunken Hearts will issue their brand new studio album, The Prize. JamBase is pleased to premiere audio of their latest single, “Broken Things.”
The Drunken Hearts’ guitarist/vocalist/lead singer-writer Andrew McConathy tells JamBase, “‘Broken Things’ was originally titled ‘Nowhere Road,’ which I wrote with our first bass player & founding band member, Derek Shields. In more recent years, after several attempts at recording the song and playing it live, we decided to shelf it from our entire catalog. It just didn’t have the right feel. In May 2017, during the writing sessions for The Prize, the band rearranged the key and chord structure, giving it a grittier, edgier vibe, and renamed it ‘Broken Things.’ It’s one of my favorite recordings on The Prize, and the opening song on the record.”
The Prize was recorded in Denver within the band’s home state of Colorado and was produced and engineered by Todd Divel (Hard Working Americans). After previously releasing two EPs, The Prize is the band’s first full-length album. The Drunken Hearts will celebrate their album release with a show at Denver’s Globe Hall on March 30 and the following day in Fort Collins at Washington’s. Todd Sheaffer of Railroad Earth will open both concerts with a solo set.
