Andrew Combs premieres new song "Born Without A Clue", tours with Erin Rae


Andrew Combs‘ new Sam Cohen-produced album Ideal Man comes out September 20 via New West Records and, following recent singles “Stars Of Longing” and “Save Somebody Else,” just premiered through Brooklyn Vega is third single "Born Without A Clue.” Each single has been a little different than the last, and this one is a lovely dose of atmospheric, Americana-tinged rock. Andrew Combs tells about the song:

"This is a tune I wrote the day after Tom Petty passed away. I was thinking about his catalog of songs, and how simple and straight from the heart they were – no fluff. It seemed like he ignored the nuisance of blowing something out of proportion just for the glitz and the glam. It hit me how important that outlook was in life. It could be applied to anything! At that time, I was stepping into the role of being a father. My daughter was not even 3 months old. “Born Without A Clue” became a mission statement to myself and to her. It is essentially saying get rid of who you think you should be, but rather, stay true to who you are at your core — talk like that, walk like that, act like that, create like that. As the lyrics say, we are all born without a clue, but it is up to each individual to find out what that clue or calling is in life and stick to it."

Andrew Combs is also touring, including Europe dates for which we today announce new dates with Erin Rae.

Indie-folk artist Erin Rae possesses a vocal tone that moves with such ease and pleasantness, it almost disguises the often melancholy content of her songs. Fears, anxiety, bittersweet memories, mental illness: Rae explores these themes with the soothing energy of a healer, her voice emitting a kind of light and warmth inside the darker narrative. Besides the dates with Andrew Combs she's got a headline leg coming up as well in support of her latest album "Putting On Airs" as well as a forthcoming volume two of JP Harris' series "Why Don't We Duet In The Road (Again)" on which she collaborates alongside Malin Pettersen, Miss Tess and Elizabeth Cook.
