Music can make your day.
One song playing at the right moment, perhaps with the right cup of coffee in your favorite mug, the sun coming through the window, can really make life worth living.
We here at American Songwriter think that songs are the oxygen for your spiritual lungs.
To that end, we wanted to share three new works of music to brighten your day and share the good word of composition. So, with that in mind, here are three songs for you today.
1. “Noble Metals” by Adrian Quesada
Black Pumas’ lead guitarist, Adrian Quesada, has announced his new solo album, Jaguar Sound, which will be his second new LP of 2022. It is slated to drop on November 18.
