Myles Kennedy is among rock's most prolific musicians. The singer and multi-instrumentalist is seemingly always working on new music in some form or another and with a year of downtime amid a pandemic, well, of course fans were going to be treated to a new album. With the release of his second solo record, The Ides of March, we asked the always insightful Kennedy to provide a track-by-track breakdown and open up about the themes and messages present, which are ones we can all learn and grow from.
Some of the songs here were written in pre-pandemic times, but socio-political strife was already largely in focus prior to the many events endured in 2020. The timeless nature of Kennedy's ever-thoughtful lyricism and perennial relevance is one of the hallmarks of so much great music.
