Dave Hause released the carefree and romantic “Hanalei,” the latest track to be lifted from the Friday, October 22 release of Hause’s fifth solo album, Blood Harmony (pre-order). Hause had the following to share about the track:
“I always have this lingering urge to drop out of society as we know it; to disappear, simplify and disconnect from the modern apparatus and just be with my family. That urge is at its most acute when I’m traveling, specifically in Hawaii. This is the song from ‘Blood Harmony’ that I have listened to the most.”
Produced by celebrated Americana singer-songwriter Will Hoge, Blood Harmony features a first class assemblage of musicians consisting of members of The E Street Band, The Highwomen, Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Carrie Underwood, Vince Gill, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Eric Church and many more. Beneath the surface of Blood Harmony are multiple layers of meaning related to Hause’s role as a musician, a brother, a husband, a son and—having become a father to twins a few months before the release of 2019’s Kick—a dad. Created with his younger brother and longstanding writing partner, Tim Hause, and being released on their very own label, Blood Harmony also presents itself as a meaningful reassertion of what family means to them all.
