BRIAN FALLON releases stirring new single 'Horses' - Listen Now

Brian Fallon has released his new single “Horses,” available today at all digital music retailers and streaming services. “Horses” heralds Fallon’s eagerly awaited new album, LOCAL HONEY, due Friday, March 27 via his own Lesser-Known Records and Thirty Tigers. His first new LP in two years, LOCAL HONEY sees Fallon melding myriad strains of American music with contemporary consequence, ambitious energy, and seemingly infinite lyrical power. The songs offer a deeply personal glimpse into the New Jersey-based singer-songwriter’s everyday world, revealing universal truths through hard-earned insight and unflinching honesty.

Fallon was originally scheduled to launch a North American tour this week with his longtime live band, The Howling Weather. However, those dates have been postponed due to the COVID-19 virus and will be rescheduled for later in 2020. Fans should hold onto their tickets and stay tuned for more information.

“21 Days” has already earned worldwide acclaim, with NME declaring it “one of Fallon’s most soulful tracks to date.” “21 Days” “chronicles the New Jersey songwriter’s attempt to kick nicotine and casts the drug as a long-lost friend or lover,” wrote Rolling Stone. “It’s a seemingly mundane topic — at least to those who never tried to quit smoking — but Fallon makes it riveting as he ticks off the days until he will no longer feel the craving.” American Songwriter praised “21 Days” as “another example of (Fallon’s) turned page and personal growth,” adding, “The song functions as a self-help track that is as much cathartic to Fallon as it is relevant to all listener, who are easily able to relate to the lyrics…The sombre vibe is carried along with a simple elegance of the music which makes the song one that is easily played over again.”

“You Have Stolen My Heart“ arrived last month alongside an equally compelling official video, streaming now via YouTube. The single was met by immediate critical applause, with Rolling Stone hailing it as “a tender ballad.” “Everything is in the present with Fallon’s intricate storytelling,” wrote American Songwriter, adding, “The video, shot in black and white, leaves a stark, blank canvas that lets the track speak for itself. Emotional, raw, and perfectly sewn, this love story is delicately woven.”

LOCAL HONEY has already begun earning early acclaim as one of the New Year’s best, with Kerrang! writing, “(Fallon is) taking his songwriting skills in stunning new directions… Across the record’s eight songs, the musician takes his listeners on a journey of introspection.”
