It’s the title of his new album, and the song has a really neat story to go with it!
Brett has talked recently about taking a break. A break from social media, from the music business, etc. But he is back with his 5th studio album called “Sunday Drive”, it’ll be released on July 10th.
And there’s a really neat story that goes with the title track…
Brett said, “Many years ago, I was an intern at universal music publishing where I worked in the basement tape room transferring CDs into MP3s. I loved listening to all of the incredible songwriters’ songs and was always blown away by what people could create from their soul. One day I stumbled upon this song called “Sunday Drive,” (written by Barry Dean, Don Mescall, Steve Robson) and I was stopped in my tracks. I couldn’t believe a song could be written by someone else but feel like every word and melody was every part of my life existence. I secretly/selfishly hoped and prayed no one would record it so that one day when the time was right, I could record it and make it something extremely special. That day is today, and it happens to be the title of my album. I cannot wait for you to take this journey with this song, I know it will do something special to your heart and soul.”
