Kurt Travis Releases "Easy Peasy" From Upcoming Solo Album
Kurt Travis has announced his brand new solo record, There's A Place I Want To Take You, out May 17th via Esque Records and Blue Swan Records. Travis has also shared the first single and music, "Easy Peasy," which can be heard now below.
Fans can pre-order the album at www.esquerecords.com.
"This song is one of my favorites on the album. It's very playful and light hearted," shares Travis. "The song is about how I don't like waking up in the morning, and also, how I have hard time falling asleep."
He continues: "I called it 'Easy Peasy' because the song is repetitious and the structure is simple, but while tracking guitars for it, was actually quite difficult to record."
Additionally, Travis will be supporting the album with a full US headlining tour starting on May 17th. The run kicks off with an album release show in Placerville, and includes stops in Salt Lake City, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Orlando, Nashville, Dallas, and more.
