Singer-songwriter David Myles debuts his new single “Kind of Like It.” The cut is the second to be released from Leave Tonight. It is the 12th release from the critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and the follow-up to 2018’s award winning album Real Love. Fans can pre-order the full length Leave Tonight on CD here and Vinyl here.
“I’m super pumped about this one.” David said of his second single “Kind of Like It”, “it has JJ Cale/Mark Knopfler vibes going on but also lots of Grateful Dead. I’d been listening to so much Dead over the last year and the thing I love most about them is the sense of fun and curiosity in their music. They explore the great sounds of American music together in a joyful way alongside their audience. I love that. I want to embody that spirit in how we play as a band and how we interact with our fans. So, that’s what this one is about. The joy of ripping together, of living together and sharing that, with all of you. Life may be short and things may be fleeting, but I kind of like it! Hope you dig the track. Can’t wait to hit the road in the fall and see all of you!”
The track follows “Leave Tonight”, the first single from the album, which celebrates David’s love of dance.
David Myles is considered something of an undercover musicologist. Within his eclectic artistic continuum, he’s explored jazz, blues, pop, holiday music, French pop, rockabilly, country, folk, gospel, and even hip-hop with noted success. He’s hosted several radio programmes and in 2018 David published a book for children called Santa Never Brings Me a Banjo via Nimbus Publishing.
The through line in his collected work has been strong song craft— no matter what genre, David has never sacrificed substance for style.
Leave Tonight’s collection of ten songs has at its core a romantic essence coupled with a side of chill and sophistication. Equal parts americana, breezy ballads, folk, and pop ear-worms – the album’s lush vibe gently transports listeners on a dreamy ride.
Leave Tonight, the complete album, will be out May 8th.
