Holler folk trio The Ghost of Paul Revere have released their new single and video “Love At Your Convenience” – PRESS HERE to listen to the song, which features shimmering piano, sweeping guitar, uplifting harmonies, and soaring yet soulful chants. Directed by Joshua Hand, the visual features the band performing the song in the rustic setting of an empty warehouse with floating white roses, illustrating the idea that no one’s love should be taken for granted.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the song, The Ghost of Paul Revere’s Griffin Sherry said, “‘Love at Your Convenience’ is a song about coping with the emotions of leaving someone you love. We wanted the arrangement to be powerful and the vocals visceral, so we looked to inspiration from bands like the Pixies, Led Zeppelin, Local Natives, and The Band. ‘Love at Your Convenience’ was the first of these new songs we worked on the road, and it has already become one of the most requested songs at our shows. I believe it’s the emotion we captured, playing to that universal understanding of heartbreak, that resonates with people when they hear it. Ultimately, we made a song about how quickly anger makes us forget love, about coming to terms with hard decisions, and the peace that can be found at the end of things. Then, we played the hell out of it.”
