Looking forward to the release of Medium Rarities, their brand-new full-length album of unreleased songs spanning the band’s decade-long career, The Wild Feathers have dropped another sneak peek with “Fire.” Showing the group’s sonic growth with its understated verse arrangement, sparkling production, and arena-ready chorus, “Fire” represents The Wild Feathers’ most recently-written songs on their new compilation album of B-sides, covers, and rarities, out November 20th.
“‘Fire’ is one of those songs that was just easy to write. It rarely happens, but when it does it’s really about just holding on and not letting it get away from you,” explains vocalist/guitarist Ricky Young. “I just sat down and started playing it and wrote it in about 45 minutes. I definitely came back and made tweaks, but it was there in 45 minutes. The band dug it so we recorded it and I’m really happy how it turned out.”
For fans who can’t wait to hear the band perform “Fire” on stage, OurVinyl just released a special live session video from East Nashville’s American Legion Post 82. Watch the OurVinyl session right here. A vinyl pressing of Medium Rarities will be available exclusively through Magnolia Record Club.
“Medium Rarities opens up the possibility for future volumes,” Young says. “We thought it was a cool thing to do for ourselves, and especially for our fans. We’ve always been one of those bands that talks about having a true catalog, by every definition: live albums, box sets, double albums, b-sides, and rarities albums—being music fans, and that’s what we are, that’s what you want from artists you like. You want anything you can get your hands on. This is one more step we’ve accomplished.”
