"Got to Keep on Hoping, When it All Feels Broken"

Y'all may not know this, but I'm a closet Folk fan. Considering how much Newgrass I've posted over the past two years, it may not be as big of a stretch as I'm making it seem like. To be clear, when I say Folk, you better believe I mean that Pop Folk you hear on the radio from the likes of Mumford and the Lumineers.

While you're at it, might as well throw the X Ambassadors into that mix. Past songs like Renegades and Cannonball showed you the type of guitar driven, new age Folk sound they were capable of producing. On their new one, Hoping, there's a heaviness that permeates the vibe of the track. Despite the somber tone, the amount of inspiration packed into the vocals is what will make you continue pressing play over and over again.

Word has it the proceeds of their new single will be going to the ACLU who is continuing to fight our President's recently proposed immigration ban. Given the constant flux that recent political events have created, we could all use a bit more hope, so this one came at just the right time...#Hoping
