Folk-rock outfit the Head and the Heart unveiled a new song, “Missed Connection,” that will appear on their forthcoming album, Living Mirage, out May 17th via Warner Bros./Reprise Records.
“Missed Connection” notably finds the Head and the Heart embracing elements of pop, with light piano and synth stabs floating above swift drums and a chugging bass line. “Don’t tell me I lost a step,” sings frontman Jon Russell, “Criss-crossed in the wrong direction/Found myself in a conversation/From a missed connection.”
Living Mirage marks the Head and the Heart’s fourth LP and follows 2016’s Signs of Light. It’s also the band’s first without co-founder Josiah Johnson, who amicably split with the group in 2016, though it does boast the return of keyboardist Kenny Hensley.
