New from The Accidentals: "Eastern Standard Time"

New from The Accidentals: "Eastern Standard Time"

One of our favorite trios of all time, The Accidentals, just released a new single and video, and whether you realize it or not, you probably need it. Invest 3 minutes and 18 seconds of your day and take flight with the gorgeous "Eastern Standard Time". Then save it close by for when you need it again.

Co-written with Peter Mulvey, "Eastern Standard Time" is a love letter to the Upper Peninsula - the strip of natural beauty that connects Peter’s home state of Wisconsin and the Accidental’s home state of Michigan. The ethereal track and arrangement, combined with an equally transcendent video filmed by Elijah Allen, allows us to experience the majesty of an Upper Peninsula winters’ day as only a broad-tail hawk might. It is a welcome flight.

As is usually the case with this busy and prolific band, the release of a great new track precludes anticipated tour dates. Accidentals members and Takamine artists Sav Buist and Katie Larson just launched the tour last week in in Bellingham, WA, and will be swinging through much of the Midwest while sharing the stage with Nashville songwriting legends Beth Nielsen Chapman, Kim Richey and Maia Sharp.

Among the Takamine guitars to be employed this time around include Sav’s go-to whiskey-brown P5DC WB, Katie’s sunburst, NEX body P6NC from Tak’s popular Pro Series 6 and the beautiful EF450C TT BSB from the acclaimed, seasoned-sounding Thermal Top (TT) Series.

A new Takamine, the EF400SC TT, was recently drafted into the Accidentals’ own Nashville-based Crooked Moon Studios where "Eastern Standard Time" was recorded– and while their new Time Out - Session #2 album will not be released until March 4th, a sneak peek at the tracks confirms what we already knew: the gorgeously full-voiced EF400SC-TT Thermal Top 12-string was incorporated in typical, genius, Accidentals fashion.

The Time Out – Session #1 single "Wildfire", co-written with Kim Richie, was named No.1 song of the year by FAI Folk Radio Charts for 2021. Sav, Katie, and Michael are now poised to build on that success with the release of Session #2, featuring collaborations with some of Music City’s most prominent tunesmiths.
