When Kenny Chesney made Songs for the Saints, he wasn’t thinking about chart positions, country radio or how these songs would play in his live shows—he was worried about the people of the Virgin Islands. Riding out a Category 5 hurricane without the same kinds of safety nets people on mainland take for granted, he understood the peril, and he channeled it into “Song for the Saints,” then “Love for Love City.”
Today, those two songs are the seeds and the title track for the #1 sales debut for an album in America, as well as the #1 Country Album in America. In addition, Songs for the Saints debuts at #2 on Billboard’s Top 200 behind Drake’s Scorpion.
“All I knew was that I was so scared for a lot of people and places that I really loved,” says Chesney of the inspiration. “I was anxious, and I was thousands of miles away. I needed to do something, something that would let those people know they weren’t gonna be forgotten when the news cycle moved on. I had no idea it would be an album, but the songs were something they could sing. And now here we are.”

It closed in through setbacks on the album’s release and the ultimate blow of Herrera’s unexpected cancer diagnosis in the midst of it all. The re-release of the single “Dancing” and Migrator’s vinyl release, out August 24, is a cathartic sigh as Herrera finds his way back on the path he set out on in the first place.
Detroit duo Serration Pulse are excited to announce their new self-titled EP, due August 10, 2018 via Third Man Records. To ring in the announcement, the duo has shared the video for “The Beach” in a premiere via BrooklynVegan, who said “…if you like ADULT., you’ll probably like Serration Pulse too. “The Beach” pulls from a similar bank of ’80s coldwave/darkwave/goth/etc influences, and Kayla’s dark, breathy vocals fit the vibe perfectly. The eerie, black and blue video fits perfectly as well.”
