Fresh Eyes (and Ears) With Andy Grammer: Guest Playlist
Andy Grammer's new single "Fresh Eyes," is, conveniently, quite fresh indeed.
"When starting to write for Album 3, the first thing I did was go out and buy the sexiest baby blue Fender Stratocaster I'd ever seen," he told PopCrush of the new single.
"I then sat in front of my amp and let the warm, super loud clean electric guitar sound wash over me in waves. 'Fresh Eyes' is the first song from the next chapter of my musical journey and I'm STOKED to share it with ya. Hope it washes over you as well."
The "Honey I'm Good" singing-slash-Dancing With The Stars superstar is currently on tour this month with Train, followed by another tour with Gavin DeGraw all the way through to November as he works on his next album. And, in between hitting the stage, Andy was nice enough to curate a special playlist just for PopCrush readers with his — wait for it! — freshest musical picks.
