New day, new song (if you missed the premiere yesterday). Listen to the title track off my new record “Afraid of Ghosts,” lyrics are below.

Pre-order on iTunes for $7.99 and get this song and “Chrissie Hynde” as instant downloads. CD and vinyl bundles are available in my webstore.

well there’s a man
who dips his feet in holy water
and so he throws the rest of his body in
says it’ll take more than wading
to keep the memories fading
i’m at least up to my neck in sin

he said i’m coming to terms with a ghost
learning to deal
i’m gonna take what scares me the most
and turn it into something real

I try to go to the hospice every Friday
Sit in traffic, thicker than blood
Try to know a man that I never really knew
And swim away from a forty year flood

and i’m coming to terms with a ghost
learning to deal
i’m gonna take just what scares me the most
and turn it into something real

Sometimes she takes a little longer getting ready
to pretend there’s someone to show
did she ever find love
or did this town have enough
i kinda bet, she’ll never let you know
but i can tell from the caked on powdered makeup
covering wrinkles from smoking away tears
she wants it either way
and i want so bad to say
love yourself for once my dear
she said…

i bet she’s coming to terms with a ghost
learning to deal
gonna take just what scares her the most
turn it into something real

Happy Birthday, Ol’ Man.. I miss you so much. You’ve been with me on this tour like never before. I feel your love and warmth. I see you when I’m singing. I talk to you several times a day. This world is different without you, but it’s also beautiful because of you. 

Your son,
B

This is the road. The most beautiful Autumn day in the countryside of Kansas and Missouri. Thanks to a hookup by our good friend, Traci Wilde of Nashville radio station Lightning100, I was able to commandeer a killer Exile custom bobber (I had one of these bikes back a few years ago that I lost in a fire. Missed it) belonging to my brother from another motor @johnnydarepic (@johnnydare on Twitter). We all rode our butts off today, and took in the transition of the leaves and random speakeasy pubs in the middle of nowhere. Thanks again, Johnny, for the hospitality. #brotherfromanothermotor

very cool to see all the love for the first song, “Chrissie Hynde”, off of the new record. next up, is the Title track to “Afraid Of Ghosts”.. this is the first song we recorded in Ryan’s studio for the new album, and it set the tone for the whole record i believe. it’s premiering here on Esquire, and if you go to iTunes and preorder the new record, you will be able to get this song as an instant grat track tonight (CD/vinyl bundles also available here). take a listen… i am proud of it…

I can’t tell ya how much this guy inspires me on a nightly basis. I’ve been doing it arguably longer and touring for 25 yrs or so, but this guy takes me to church, a comedy club, and the only Grateful Dead concert I would ever want to attend. All in one night. Thanks @theryanadams because not that many artists love music like the way you do.
