MUSIC MONDAY: It Wasn’t Easy To Be Happy For You – The Lumineers

This is one of the things I missed doing on this blog:  discovering new (and new to my ears) music.  I have to thank Spotify for this find though.  Release Radar playlist lists new releases from artists that I have liked over time and well, let’s just say that in my opinion, The Lumineers is one of the most underrated bands ever.

They did me right when they released Ho Hey, but have you listened to Stubborn Love?  And that line???  Just straight to the heart.

Then there was Ophelia, which I thoroughly sang to every day for the past year driving to work.

The lyrics they come up with just hit the heart and the soul.  I am really thrilled finding out about them years ago.  It feels almost exactly like discovering Bob Dylan’s basement tapes.

Anyway, this is their latest song from their latest album, yet to be released.  Get ready for some feels.

Should you feel the need to sing along, Genius has the complete lyrics here.
