Greg Loiacono released the new single “What Can I Say?” via his Blue Rose label. The song is the third in a series of four solo singles from The Mother Hips founding member.

“What Can I Say?” follows previously released singles “Seed” and “Bound To Fall,” the latter featuring singer-songwriter Jamie Drake. Loiacono recorded “What Can I Say?” at Coyote Hearing in Oakland, California with Mikael Jorgensen (Wilco), Pat Spurgeon (Rogue Wave), Charles James Gonzalez and Emilie Raines. Hiss Golden Messenger’s Scott Hirsch handled mixing at Echo Magic in Ojai, California.

Loiacono detailed “What Can I Say?” in Relix Magzine, who premiered the track. Read his words below:

The song has one of those melodies that comes in the middle of the night. When this happens I get out of bed and start humming and strumming very quietly as not to wake anyone in the house. As “What Can I Say?” formed the delicate singing style kept working with the melody and the pleading lyrics, so I opted to sing falsetto. The amount of Curtis Mayfield I was listening to during that time probably influenced the style, as well. A lot of us have been in a situation where we have asked for forgiveness even when we knew we probably wouldn’t get it. Sometimes you gotta put yourself out there regardless of the outcome.
