Judah & the Lion Release New Single, “Over My Head”
Judah & the Lion are kicking off 2019 with the release of their new single, “Over My Head” – available now via your preferred music platform! The track also premieres today across iHeartRadio’s Alternative stations nationally, catch it airing on a station near you starting at 7AM ET or listen via https://www.iheart.com/.
The synth-and-banjo driven track comes on the heels of “Pep Talk” and “Quarter-Life Crisis” – a multi-track single released in December and the band’s first new music since their sophomore album, Folk Hop N Roll. It comes two years after Judah & the Lion broke out with #1 single “Take It All Back” – a song that would launch the band into a frenzy of global touring for the next year and a half. “Over My Head” is a deeply personal look into vocalist Judah Akers’ mindset during a time that was both professionally exciting and personally turbulent.
“I was on the road and homesick. So that feeling's rushing in, mom's not doing well, not talking to dad, my sister's sad. All these thoughts were happening and I was so overwhelmed with life. I was medicating and distracting myself in different ways so I could get through." – Judah Akers
With these three new tracks, Judah & the Lion (Judah Akers, Nate Zuercher, Brian Macdonald) continue to encourage openness, strength in togetherness, and above all hope. The band kicked off the year in front of a crowd of 200,000 at Nashville’s New Year’s Eve alongside Keith Urban, PeterFrampton, and Brett Young where they debuted the songs live and again performed “Over My Head” the next day at NHL’s Winter Classic at Notre Dame Stadium on NBC. Already announced for this year’s Hangout Music Festival in May, fans can expect more on the horizon live from Judah & the Lion soon.
