The finished version of a track that he used to perform when he first started, Lyfe Jennings reflects on his life’s journey in his new track, Gold. Reminding us a little of Made Up My Mind from his first album, he recounts his sins over his haunting, acoustic guitar solo and talks about what he has learned from his past. The appeal of Jennings has always been that he never sugarcoats his life so that he never comes across as preachy; just self-reflective. The lyrical content is strong and comes across as something you would hear at a poetry slam if it wasn’t set to music.
This is the second single from Jennings’ upcoming album, Ten Years Later, coming this summer.
