Greta Van Fleet Show Melodic Side With ‘You’re the One’
Greta Van Fleet have amassed a lot of fans pretty quickly over the past year thanks to thier their catchy, upbeat straight-ahead rock and roll sound, but the band is showing a little bit of restraint and range with the latest song to surface from their upcoming album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army.
"You're the One" is a more melodic track from the band's canon, showing listeners a more heartfelt and tender side on this mid-tempo cut that also incorporates a bit of backing organ work.
In our recent chat with guitarist Jake Kiszka, the axeman revealed that "You're the One" is the track that is the oldest song from their history to make the new disc, written when he and brother Josh Kiszka were 17.
"I think certainly around the period of time this song was written there was quite a bit of folk that we were listening to," said the guitarist. "It was [Bob] Dylan and The Band, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez and things like that. So, it was certainly folk elements surrounding 'You're the One.'"
With Anthem of the Peaceful Army due out tomorrow (Oct. 19), it's likely this is the last new song to be previewed before the release. "When the Curtain Falls" has climbed the charts at radio, while "Watching Over," "Lover, Leaver" and "Anthem" have also surfaced ahead of the disc.
Greta Van Fleet recently announced their 2019 touring plans, starting a world tour in support of the album in Sydney, Australia on Jan. 29. See all of their scheduled dates, including U.S. stops, here.
