When it comes to dark times, a lot of us deal with it in different ways. From finding solace in close friends to honing in our self-development, each journey is different. For singer-songwriter Paul McDonald, music was the outlet and the result is staggering. Dropping the expanded deluxe edition of his 2018 solo album Modern Hearts today, the artist candidly peels back the layers of the past few years, touching on breakups, healing, and redemption.
Through the up-tempo pop-tinged guitars and folk-inspired melodies, the artist croons over an array of emotional-driven soundscapes, intimately detailing every experience and challenge. Adding previously unreleased tracks, “Just a Matter of Time” and “Bright Lights”, McDonald continues his poetic story, using genre-bending hooks and his instantly recognisable vocals.
Speaking on the new release, the artist said, “Darkness is a beautiful gift. It introduced me to new layers of myself and gave me a brand new perspective, but I’m happy to be out of it. The light feels pretty good these days.”
