Coming back earlier this year following a three-year hiatus, Nashville rockers Framing Hanley have a new album on the way for early next year, and have just shared ‘Baggage Claim’, its second single.
Frontman Kenneth Nixon had the following to say about the song.
“I’ve never been a fan of talking about the meaning behind a song to the songwriter, because it’s a songwriter’s goal usually to write a song that someone can relate to themselves. It’s funny, though, because when people hear this song, they’ll likely have a much different takeaway than what this song means to us. This song was written about the stranglehold that music, and moreover, the music industry had on us four years ago when we first considered walking away. Just the feeling of wanting to change one’s identity, everything about oneself, to have a fresh start. Yet every time we tried to distance ourselves from music, it was right there; threatening to pull us back under.”

The band’s fourth full-length album, ‘Sumner Roots’, is expected to see a release in Spring 2019.
Pre-orders are expected to be made available soon.
