Hayley Kiyoko Goes “Deep In The Woods” on New Single

In anticipation of her sophomore album, PANORAMA, due out July 29, pop star Hayley Kiyoko has released her latest single, “Deep Into the Woods.”. “‘Deep in the Woods’ is a song that captures the feeling of instant connection, as if you’ve known someone forever even though you’ve only just met,” says Hayley. “It feels as if your entire being is haunted by their presence wherever you go. It’s that instantaneous moment of knowing you are willing to do anything to be with the one you love.”

Review: G. Love’s Decisive Journey From North to South

As the follow-up to his Grammy-nominated 2020 offering, The Juice, Philadelphia Mississippi represents a change of tack for Garrett Dutton, better known by his professional handle, G. Love.

(Not surprisingly, one of the more emphatic offerings included here is also titled “Lemonades.”) It also continues a tradition Love has maintained over the course of his career, both on his own and with his longtime band Special Sauce—that is, constant collaborations with other like-minded artists, from the Avett Brothers and Jack Johnson to Zap Mama.
