New Release: Avi Kaplan – Sweet Adeline Pt. 2

Nashville based singer-songwriter, Avi Kaplan released a new song, “Sweet Adeline Pt. 2,” today, the second preview track from his forthcoming EP I’ll Get By, set to release on February 28th.

“Sweet Adeline Pt. 2” with haunting arpeggiating acoustic guitar, bright pedal steel and luscious harmonies provide the perfect soundtrack for Kaplan’s poignant vocals, sharing his reflections on a former relationship.

Kaplan stated, “This song is a remorseful reflection of a past relationship. Often times I’m much better sharing my heart with music than just with words. I wanted the production to embody the sadness of a failed relationship but keep it light hearted enough to still capture the feeling of looking back on the beautiful times we had with reverence.”

With the exception of lead track, “Change on the Rise,” (produced by Paul Moak) I’ll Get By was helmed by producer Mike Mogis, well known for his work with Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst and First Aid Kit among others. On I’ll Get By, Kaplan, the former Pentatonix star, raised just 40 minutes from Sequoia National Park in the rolling hills of central California, rediscovered his musical roots and delved deeper into the music he’s always loved. Exploring a range of sounds from soul to bluegrass, these songs are threaded together by the search for spiritual redemption, and cast with acoustic guitar, pedal steel, swirling organ and deep groove percussion that beautifully complement Avi’s haunting, other worldly vocal ability.

Following a sold-out tour of Europe, Kaplan will be venturing out on a solo U.S. spring tour with special guests Paper Wings – see full dates below…
