Multi-platinum recording artist Gavin DeGraw has released his very personal new single “Face The River”, which is the title track from his forthcoming album out on 20th May. On the track, written by DeGraw, his distinct intonation quivers above sparse piano before the organ-laden beat simmers. This slow-burn catches fire on a heavenly hook as he croons, “Try to face the river. I cannot cross.”
“This album is dedicated to my parents,” Gavin shares, “They were my heroes. It was their love story, their sacrifices, and their guidance that shaped this music.”
Along with the new single and album announcement, DeGraw has shared the official music video for the single and debuted the first episode of his new documentary series, “Face The River”. The series is heartfelt and uplifting as each episode follows Gavin as he crisscrosses America struggling with the unresolved grief that comes with the untimely loss of both parents. Watch the first episode on Gavin’s Facebook page here. The series will feature six episodes in addition to three live performance videos.
