The last two releases from Case Arnold‘s SO(U)L Theory (“Love Found,” “Psychonaut“) ranged from soulful to brooding, abstract and personal. With the album set to drop by month’s end, the Tennessee native adds another soundscape to the mix of his debut album: the blues.
“Strange Places” is the album’s most relaxing effort thus far, digging into his region’s musical history for the this-is-how-life-is narrative present on the song. He hums, “the sun rises, the leaves fall, change constitutes us all,” taking a positive but realistic look on life, love and how he’ll experience the next three-quarters of his life.
The song is produced by fellow Tennesseean Gourmet Grooves, and you can listen to it below.
