Revered Nashville troubadour Bones Owens has released the rock-infused power ballad ‘Summer Skin’, which is taken from Owens’ forthcoming genre-bending album, Love Out Of Lemons, due out July 12th via Black Ranch Records / Thirty Tigers. Determined to create a song encapsulating summer, Owens’ music and lyrics are reminiscent of carefree, simpler times.  It’s a song filled with nostalgia; an attempt at bottling the feeling of summers spent without responsibility, chasing the high of the moment.

Directed by Daniel Chaney, ‘Summer Skin’ was matched with a music video that blends avant-garde elements, with vintage pop culture, in a very analogue, lo-fi way. “We wanted the video to be whimsical and illustrate that ineffable feeling of young love.” Bones Owens shares and adds “The result is a visual journal that perfectly complements the song’s theme”

In conjunction with the album announcement, Bones Owens released ‘Get It On’ with People Magazine, who premiered the track and video for the celebratory anthem; revelling in the feeling of finally being able to unwind at the end of a long day.

Recorded at The Smoakstack in Nashville, Love Out Of Lemons dives into topics about love, self-preservation, and new beginnings. It’s a sonically vibrant, multi-layered album, making for an ideal summer soundtrack. Owens’ self-described chameleon-like approach has not only played a pivotal role in his own music, but the ability to collaborate with artists across all genres, having worked with Yelawolf, Mikky Ekko, and Grammy-nominated, Jelly Roll.

The upcoming release showcases his raw songwriting while encapsulating the electric essence of his live shows. The 11-tracks feature co-writes with Henry Brill (Phantogram, Jack Garratt) on ‘Born Again’ and Austin Jenkins (Leon Bridges, White Denim) on ‘Higher Than I Wanna Be’. Drums throughout were played by Julian Dorio (The Whigs, Eagles of Death Metal), with all other instruments handled by Owens and producer Moak.

Traveling 2100 miles, over eight days, and performing six shows, Owens recently made a solo trek around the Midwest on his Harley Davidson to coincide with the release of Love Out of Lemons. Tying in with Love Out of Lemons standout ‘Goin’ Back Where I Came From’, the route included Owens’ native Missouri and Harley Davidson’s Milwaukee headquarters.

Bones Owens will be celebrating his album release with two added shows in Nashville, TN and McCaysville, GA, then hitting the road this summer supporting The Steel Woods and Elle King before joining the inimitable Blackberry Smoke on their UK and European leg of the Be Right Here tour.
