Blacktop Mojo debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band premiered the video for its new single ‘Prodigal‘ on Tuesday.  The song is taken from the band’s most recent full-length studio recording, Burn The Ships (2017).  Musically speaking, the song presents a power ballad style composition that is familiar to a wide range of listeners.

In regards to its lyrical content, front man Matt James explained in an interview that the song centers, lyrically, on that drive that everyone has to get out and explore the world.

“We had fun making this video with some of our good friends from our hometown acting out the main parts,” James said.  “We felt like the father-son dynamic in the video  really reflected the song’s theme.  The song is sort of autobiographical.  It’s about the experience of growing up in a small town and always talking about ‘getting out’ one day.  No matter where or how far you go, though, you always have a little bit of where you came from that you take with you.”

‘Prodigal’ is just the latest single that the band has released from Burn The Ships.  The album has also produced the singles ‘Where The Wind Blows,’ ‘Underneath‘ and ‘Dream On‘ (Aerosmith cover).  Burn The Ships is streaming online now here.  The album’s full track listing is noted below.

Blacktop Mojo Debuts New Acoustic Take Of ‘Underneath’

Blacktop Mojo has released more new music from its latest album Burn the Ships.

The band debuted on Tuesday, a new acoustic take on the song ‘Underneath.’  Recorded in-studio at Audioworx Studios in the band’s hometown of Palestine, TX, the song is about what happens when a person lets anger and bitterness control him or her according to drummer Nathan Gillis.

“I’ve seen firsthand how bitterness and anger can destroy a person from the inside out,” Gillis said.  “This song is about that, but also saying “I understand what happened, I’m sorry you went through the painful things that brought you to this point.”  Keep your heart free.  Forgive people even if they don’t deserve it.”

This new take on the song features front man Matt James alongside guitarist Ryan Keifer performing the intimate new take on the song.
