Billboard has premiered Spirit Family Reunion’s new single “Ease My Mind,” which comes out on Friday, ahead of the new album ‘Ride Free’ (August 9), their first in four years: https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8517187/spirit-family-reunion-ease-my-mind
The memorable “Ease My Mind” kicks off with washboard and fiddle, hammering home Spirit Family’s theme that freedom and belonging are for all. Band singer and “Ease My Mind” songwriter Nick Panken says, “Dreaming can be like the planting seeds along your path. Allowed the right conditions, they can often blossom, although rarely in predictable form. This is a song regarding the experience of encountering dreams, and the patience, persistence and acceptance that comes within that process.”
