Watch the video for lead single “Year Of The Tiger” below. Directed by Dan Sturgess, the video is based on a concept created from a discussion between Kennedy and his manager. The video follows a reflective Kennedy as he travels through the memory of the loss of his father in 1974 – the year of the tiger.
Year Of The Tiger is currently available for pre-order in various bundle configurations. The album is also available for digital pre-order. Fans that order the album digitally will receive an instant download of the title track. The song is also available at all streaming services including Spotify and Apple Music.
On Year Of The Tiger, Myles embarks on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hasn’t explored until this point in his career. Kennedy himself plays banjo, lap steel, bass, and mandolin, in addition to guitar throughout the album. His emotional journey and personal story is captured in a bluesy-americana album with a twist of country and rock, highlighting his unmistakable and soulful voice.
The album is released on March 9.
