Trapt, ‘Headstrong’ (Acoustic) – Exclusive Song Premiere
Trapt are ready to unleash 'The Acoustic Collection' in September, and they're teaming up with Loudwire to bring you this exclusive premiere of the unplugged version of their biggest hit, 'Headstrong' (listen above).
The track first put Trapt on the musical map, as the song skyrocketed straight to No. 1 on both the Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. From there, the doors opened for Trapt, who have delivered a steady stream of hard rock radio hits over the past decade.
Frontman Chris Taylor Brown tells Loudwire, "'The Acoustic Collection' really focuses on the songs we have written throughout the years. I think by stripping every song down to the basic instruments, it really allows the emotion in each song to be felt. We have played acoustic sets at radio stations, meet and greets with fans and have even done a few full acoustic shows and with each performance, our fans asked for an album of acoustic songs. I really feel like we delivered exactly what they had in mind."
He adds, "This album is definitely the most organic sounding album we have ever done for obvious reasons. We were able to create an album that breathes and moves without the aid of too much production, just natural instruments the way they were meant to be heard."
Fans can pre-order Trapt's 'The Acoustic Collection' (due Sept. 23) via iTunes. And you can also catch the band on the road at one of the dates listed below.
