Matt Turk's "Cracked Egg" — Exclusive Premiere

Here’s a gorgeous cascading song from Matt Turk that appears on his upcoming album Cold Revival, due out October 7.

“Cracked Egg” has stark lyrics and pounding rhythms that add to the angst conveyed by this talented artist. The song builds to frenzied realization of a shattered love.

The mandolin performance and orchestration expertly create a vivid intensity.

Turk shares “’Cracked Egg’ is the opening track on the new recording Cold Revival. It's got this galloping feel expressed in the mandolin riff, acoustic guitar, driving bass and drums. For me it's an emotional tune and shares the anger, passion and commitment that love endures.”

Listen here:
