Song Premiere: Alberta Cross, 'Magnolia'
New York-via-London rockers Alberta Cross are set to release Songs of Patience, the follow-up to their 2009 debut Broken Side of Time, on July 17th on ATO. Take an exclusive first listen to their new single, "Magnolia," a steadily soaring jam with the kind of closing chorus that demands group sing-alongs.
"'Magnolia' is a song about too many late nights, for better or worse, and the feeling of estrangement they sometimes bring," says lead singer and guitarist Petter Ericson Stakee. "At the end of the day, though, I feel like it's more of a positive song than a negative one. It's pretty colorful and, for some, could be a sort of summer chant about having a good time. I'd say it's definitely a summer tune."
