Jerry Joseph releases his third single, “Bone Towers”, off his upcoming album, The Beautiful Madness. Produced by Patterson Hood with Drive-By Truckers as his band, the album will be released worldwide on August 21, 2020. The track release is accompanied by a lyric video created by Thomas Van Genderen.
“Bone Towers” places the listener at the unraveling of a relationship, drawing imagery from the skeletal structures of unfinished skyscrapers, left to blow in the wind after the fall of Saddam Hussein. The same towers which were right outside the window where Jerry wrote it.
Jerry was working on a series of songs about the middle of marriage, the years where it can feel routine and predictable but where there is also a solid foundation, a life, the partners have built together that keeps them bonded. The songs on this album were written in various places around the world, but this song was composed in the unlikely location of Sulaymaniyah, Kurdistan while Jerry was there teaching children in a permanent refugee camp how to play guitar with his non-profit, Nomad Music Foundation – https://nomadmusicfoundation.org/
