First new music in two years premieres
A Thousand Horses returns with “Broken Heartland,” a song they surprised fans with today (Fri, June 24th). The track was produced by Dave Cobb and written by Bill Satcher, Michael Hobby, Jonathon Singleton, and Andrew Dorff.
“Broken Heartland” offers a balance blending Tennessee twang with anthemic melodies, twin electric guitars, and plenty of roadhouse rock & roll. It’s a modern song rooted in the same sounds that first captivated the bandmates at a young age.
“Rock & Foll is in our DNA,” explains Satcher. “We couldn’t hide it even if we wanted to.”
Hobby agrees, adding, “This is the kind of music that speaks to us, so it naturally comes out whenever we’re playing together. We don’t mind combining different influences into our own sound. ‘Broken Heartland’ is about a sad, lonely place where you’re feeling beat down from a relationship — we’ve all been there — but we wanted to make the song rock, too. It feels energetic while still having all that tension and angst. It’s the best of both worlds.”
The song is their first new music in two years and was recorded at historic RCA Studio A in Nashville.
