Ghost Hounds have released their blues-rock-fueled album First Last Time via Gibson Records. The 10-track album features singles “Last Train To Nowhere,” “Make It Shake,” and “Dirty Angel.”

On creating the album, Ghost Hounds explain, “As a band, it was kind of amazing how dialed in we were recording First Last Time. Thomas writes the songs and really leans on his ability to create characters and narratives in his head, then he tells that person’s story through song. Sometimes, when recording, he’d bring in ideas and we sat with them for a while, like ‘Last Train To Nowhere.’ We spent quite a bit of time on that one to convey the emotion and story just right because it felt special. Others that we’re excited for you to hear really came together in a fun and collaborative way, like ‘Dirty Angel’ and ‘Let’s Sleep on it Together.’ They’ve got distinct vibes that showcase the variety of our sound. We’re extremely proud of this record.”

5Luke Grimes

Luke Grimes today released a new version of, “Hold On,” which also features Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance, a co-writer on the track. Produced by Dave Cobb, the song was written by Vance and Ilsey Juber.

“‘Hold On’ has become one of my favorite songs on the (upcoming) album,” said Grimes. “Foy Vance is one of my favorite current songwriters and although he and I couldn’t get together in person, I knew I wanted him to be a part of this album. He had this song that had not been cut and I immediately fell in love with the words; I felt so connected to it. It’s a familiar feeling, the fear of falling too deeply for someone because you could ultimately get hurt. I think it’s a universal feeling for anyone who has had their heart broken.”
