Singer/songwriter Glenn Thomas has released “All You Can Do,” the timely new single from his forthcoming LP Reassure Me There’s A Window, out May 15th via Palace Flophouse Records. Thomas wrote “All You Can Do” about the resolve to accept things the way they are, which often is the hardest thing to do, and says “The lyrics came pretty quickly thinking of how sometimes, despite our best intentions, things aren’t always as we want them to be, and not to get too worked up about it.”
Reassure Me There’s A Window features tight fingerpicking guitar-based tunes with introspective lyrics fleshed out with resonant string arrangements. Each of the album’s 11 tracks center around the human condition – ideas of love and loss, isolation and connection, and wondering what more is out there. Thomas writes songs that cut straight to his truths; by putting his life and the human condition under the microscope, his songs articulately observe the big questions with small details, paying careful attention to his understanding of himself and the seasonality of life.
Thomas, who cut his teeth fronting Rhode Island rock outfit Wild Sun, has shared stages with bands like Langhorne Slim, The Wombats, and Blitzen Trapper. He began writing songs that didn’t fit within the rock-centric framework and decided he would strike out on his own, stretching his creative muscles. The album was produced by Jordan Lehning (Rodney Crowell, Andrew Combs, Joshua Hedley); with its throwback flair, Reassure Me There’s A Window is a lush, sweetly-arranged collection of articulate folk-tinged songs.
