German-based singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer M. Byrd releases his new track “Outside Of Town” today with Nettwerk. In his latest effort, M. Byrd finds hope even in stories of sadness. Inspired by a friend who was displaced due to war, “Outside of Town,” touches on the struggles of uncertainty and the pain of loss. M. Byrd juxtaposes this with messages of hope heard in the atmospheric guitars and his impassioned vocals yearning for a better future.
“I wrote ‘Outside Of Town’ a few days after meeting a friend who had to flee from a war with his daughter. It tells his story in a fictional city that is surrounded by desert and war, sustaining itself with big walls and what little water they have left.” M. Byrd adds, “every time I play the song, it reminds me of how I admire people who are fighting for a better life for themselves and their families. All of us could be in the situation of having to look past the borders of our homes, and every one of us should play a part in helping the people who are willing to go through so much suffering to provide a safer place for their family and children.”
“Outside Of Town” follows the release of M. Byrd’s previous singles “Seed,” “Flood” and “Over You / Over Me”, all off his debut full-length album The Seed out June 16th.German singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer M.
