Midland Are Pure Bliss on New Song ‘Fast Hearts and Slow Towns’ [Listen]
Innocence and bliss take centerstage on Midland's new track "Fast Hearts and Slow Towns." The trio keeps it light on a breezy tune that falls in line with their traditional country sound.
The song opening with three-part harmony shimmering over acoustic guitar before the verses kicks in, touching on memories of young love in a Silverado truck. The chorus, which captures the sense of a fleeting youthful moments, is bookended by echoing three-part harmony. Steel guitar unites with the acoustic as the trio croons: "Fast hearts and slow towns / They light up the sundown / They burn till they go out / Fast hearts and slow towns."
"Fast Hearts and Slow Towns" is one of many songs the vintage style group have unveiled leading up to the release of their new album Let It Roll, which is set to drop on Friday (Aug. 23).

The album is the follow-up to their debut, On the Rocks, which brought the chart-topping single "Drinkin' Problem." Not long after the album sees the light of day, Midland will embark on a three-month tour that includes dates overseas in Australia opening for Tim McGraw, along with a set at Country 2 Country Festival.
“Everything we’ve learned out on the road touring On the Rocks is all right here on this album. These songs are deeply personal and from the heart,” Mark Wystrach says in a press release.
Earlier this year, Midland teamed up with Brooks & Dunn for a new rendition of the duo's hit "Boot, Scootin' Boogie" for the collaborative album Reboot.
