GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum rock band NEEDTOBREATHE has just released two of the most highly anticipated singles from their upcoming album, ‘CAVES.’ The singles include “Wasting Time,” featuring country hitmakers Old Dominion, and “Temporary Tears,” featuring acclaimed Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance.
About “Wasting Time” featuring Old Dominion:
“Wasting Time” was among the first songs composed for NEEDTOBREATHE’s upcoming album, ‘CAVES.’ The band aimed to create a fun, rock-infused track that would electrify their live performances. They also sought to capture the energy that Old Dominion brings to their shows. Matthew Ramsey of Old Dominion shared his excitement, saying, “‘Wasting Time’ has all the elements that made me fall in love with NEEDTOBREATHE years and years ago.”
About “Temporary Tears” featuring Foy Vance:
For the album’s closing track, “Temporary Tears,” NEEDTOBREATHE collaborated with their long-time friend and acclaimed singer-songwriter, Foy Vance. The band holds Foy Vance in high regard, considering him one of the greatest living singers. Having him join them on this track was a meaningful and special experience.
CAVES is a collection of awe-inspiring melodies, breathtaking instrumentation, and epic-scale energy, giving the band’s soul-probing approach a bigger, more expansive new scope––one that American Songwriter writes is “brimming with anthemic, arena-worthy sounds” and has “larger-than-life productions.”
In addition to Old Dominion and Foy Vance, the album features special guests Carly Pearce and alternative rock band Judah & The Lion, who will be touring with NEEDTOBREATHE this fall.
CAVES was written in two post-pandemic phases – first during their aforementioned getaway in Utah, where the group was finally able to get together again, and then again after they returned to the road, re-acclimating to massive crowds alongside OneRepublic. The making of the album was captured in a two-part documentary “A World Without A Mirror: The Making of CAVES”.
