NASHVILLE, TN. – (10th December, 2021) – MannyBlu has released his brand new hard-hitting single “95” today (10/12). The track is the third single to be released from his upcoming Country Punk EP – due out on December 31st. “95” is available worldwide to stream/download here.
Written by DavidBrown and RyanPattengale, “95” is personal to Blu because it’s a song that reminds him of the memories and people who have been with him throughout his music career. After holding onto the track for about two years, he felt that its lyrics of reflection and authenticity perfectly aligned with the rest of the Country Punk EP tracklist.
“The track has had many different lives. It feels like the song has grown with me and now is the time to put it on a project” says Blu. “It’s a song about never forgetting the community [one] has back home and the people who have loved and supported you before leaving to chase a dream. It’s a song about family, friends, and relationships that get us through every day.”
Blu recently released two other singles from his upcoming EP, “Doin’ Fine” and “Too Bad So Sad,” giving fans a taste of what they can expect from the full project.
Not slowing down after a busy 2021, Blu has also announced that he will be going on tour with Dallas Smith in 2022. For tickets and more information about the upcoming tour, fans can visit https://mannyblumusic.com.
