Folk-pop duo Safe Hands premiered the lead single from its forthcoming album Highs & Lows this week.

The duo — Caitlin Carey and Mikey Adams (A Loss For Words) — debuted its new single ‘Honestly‘ Thursday. The song is one of 11 songs that make up the body of the forthcoming album, which is scheduled for release Nov. 16.

Album pre-saves are open. The album’s track listing is noted below.

Highs & Lows Track Listing

Genuine

Honestly

Some Kind of Destiny ft Nikki Hayes

A Paixao ft Luke Rainsford

Old Stones

Touch

Love You Give Away

To Have and Hold ft Tohm Napier (Holygood)

Empty House

Mount Vernon

Wide Awake ft Nick Thompson (Hit The Lights)

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Honesty’ is a gentle, acoustic work that features the harmonies of Carey and Adams’ vocals alongside a guitar, cello, and piano. Its gentility will resonate with a wide range of listeners.

The gentile approach to the song’s musical arrangement is an interesting presentation. That is because it is not precisely what one might expect from a song that, according to Adams, is about the start of a relationship. Most songs that are about that first stage of a relationship are typically very fiery and upbeat, but this song is the polar opposite of those presentations.

Adams commented on the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview.

“I wrote this song while riding the high of a new, albeit brief relationship,” he said. “It had been months since I had felt motivated to pick up a guitar and this just poured out of me. While the flame didn’t last, at least I drew inspiration from it for which I am thankful.”
