April 4 — Acoustic folk duo Steve and Ginie Jackson are officially mapping out their plans for 2022.
The duo announced Monday, it is scheduled to release its new album, Colder Than The Sea May 26 through Thousand Islands Records. In anticipation of its release, the duo debuted the record’s lead single, ‘7 Billion People‘ Sunday.
The musical arrangement featured in the duo’s new single is an upbeat composition that does well to echo the mood set through the song’s lyrics, which themselves deliver a story of someone who is head over heels in love with someone and over the moon because of it. The arrangement echoes a clear Celtic punk vibe, even being acoustic. That is evidenced through the very subtle accordion and the distinct use of the strings and vocal style from the pair.
According to information provided about the debut of ‘7 Million People,’ the song focuses lyrically on the couple’s love for one another. Yes, the couple is romantically paired, as well as musically.
Along with planning the release of its new album (its second and third overall studio recording following its 2017 debut LP, Leaving For Today and its follow, the 2019 EP, Dance Away), the Jacksons are also planning a tour in support of its new album. Details for the tour are under consideration.
