SmokeTree Records artist Jeff Coffeyannounced his highly anticipated third solo album to be released in the Summer of 2018. Coffey offered fans a tongue in cheek taste of what is coming with the first single, “Got To Get Away,” on Feb. 27th available on iTunes and Amazon. Hot off the presses, the new single penned by Coffey is obviously a fan favorite with an impressive No. 1 debut on the Amazon Music Movers and Shakers as well as No. 10 on New Releases and No. 12 on the Top 100 Best Sellers lists! The illustrious performer gave fans a first opportunity for a sneak peek via his fan newsletter, COFFEYMATES on Monday.
“The counter beat percussion and guitar feel grabs you from the beginning of the song and harmonies are smooth, but obviously what seals the deal is Jeff’s voice. Coffey has a spring time/summer time/get away time hit on his hands. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album when it releases. The mix and Jeff’s voice go together like a beach and a cold beverage!” - Eric Dahl, music reporter/reviewer. “Sometimes when it gets too hard, you feel like bangin’ your head against the wall But you don’t need to look too far, to see that everyone around you can hardly breathe at all. Sometimes when I’m alone, thinkin’ about the time and how it’s gone Maybe I should get out of town, ain’t no sense in me and myself just hangin’ around I got to get away Leavin’ all my troubles far behind me I got to get away Somewhere where no one could ever find me…” Although the title is fitting for his current situation after departing his position as lead tenor vocalist and bass player for the multi-platinum selling, Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame group Chicago, the song reflects a fun, lighthearted tune about getting away from your everyday stress. Fans can watch for digital availability on streaming platforms to be online in the near future for “Got To Get Away."
