KUTX host Susan Castle spills the beans on the BEST SONGS EVER! At least for this week.
First up, it’s “Binz” by Solange…as in Solange Knowles…as in Beyoncé’s sister. Solange released her fourth album this March entitled When I Get Home, which was inspired by her childhood home of Houston where her and Beyoncé’s journey to musical stardom began. The album is full of references to her hometown and features samples from fellow Houston music-makers.
Willie Nelson- “Ride Me Back Home”
Willie Nelson’s new album Ride Me Back Home arrives on June 21st, and it features new songs and cover songs ranging from Guy Clark to Billy Joel. The title track is a tribute to horses who have seen better days and was co-written with Sonny Throckmorton, a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer who lives right by Willie’s Luck studio and ranch where Willie keeps the 60 horses he rescued from the slaughterhouse.
Hatchie- “Without a Blush”
Also coming out on June 21st is Keepsake, the full length debut from singer-songwriter/musician Hatchie, a.k.a. Harriette Pilbeam from Brisbane, Australia. Check out “Without A Blush,” and watch Hatchie play the song live in our Studio 1A.
