Published Apr 15, 2020Pharis and Jason Romero are a month away from releasing fifth studio album Bet On Love, and the duo have now shared another pair of songs from the effort ahead of time.
Both the album's title track and "Hometown Blues" can be heard with accompanying performance videos below. They follow the previously shared "New Day" and "We All Fall."
"'Bet On Love' is the most personal and intimate song I've ever written," Pharis said in a statement. "Most of our songs are about other people; it's exhilarating to sing such a personal song. It's a release, a permission to be frank about the outward charade I can create, and what it is I desire - ease, smiles, love.
"Hometown Blues," Pharis says, is about "that confusing state of mind where you love and crave the grounding of your home town, but know that you need to leave to really appreciate it. And you resist the old patterns that may follow you if you return."
Bet On Love is set to arrive May 15. The album is now available for pre-order.
