John Wesley Premieres “by the light of a sun” Lyric Video

Today we’re premiering a brand-new lyric video by singer-songwriter and guitarist John Wesley.

The song, “by the light of a sun,” is from Wesley’s forthcoming eighth studio album, a way you’ll never be, which releases October 7 via InsideOut Music.

“This song sets the tone as a good representation of the style of music and sound for this album,” Wesley says. “It also opens the door lyrically to introduce the concept of the album, which is my interpretation of the parallels between my favorite author, Ernest Hemingway’s 'Lost Generation' and what I perceive to be our own modern-day version of a lost generation.

"This theme is threaded through all of the songs on the album, with some of the songs making solid connections to characters, stories, and my personal interpretations of some of Hemingway’s writing.”
