Herrick has released “Freedom Love,” a kinetic new single from their stunning sophomore album Cottonfields.

Freedom Love by HerrickHerrick’s self-made 2012 debut album, “New Dance” confirmed that the band had no interest in following trends but was instead in pursuit of timeless expression as it forged its identity. With nonstop roadwork, flexing their musical muscles, confirmed that they were in it for the long haul. Now, four years after hitting the radar, Herrick take an exponential leap with the widescreen opus Cottonfields (Breakaway Entertainment April 15, 2016).

With this musically combustible and conceptually dazzling work, the Nashville-based band forcefully takes its place alongside the best of its peers while building on the rich legacy of its own inspirations. During this a la carte age, Herrick has boldly pushed against the current, making a bona fide album that demands to be heard in its entirety.
The first single “Freedom Love” is a definitive push to open a door to yet another side to Herrick.

“Kerry began writing this a few years back”, says Donna. Lead singer-Mandolin player of the band. “We rewrote it about three times then brought it to the band and had them come in on it. I think it is a great example of what the new album is all about.”
Cottonfields was produced by Herrick and veteran producer David Walker. Donna alongside husband/bass/Songwriter/band founder Kerry Herrick, the band’s guitarist/songwriter Jefferson Rogers, Drummer/songwriter Jeff Bradshaw, Herrick commenced recording the album in January, 2014.

The band tracked the majority of the record live off the floor at WME, Walker’s studio in La Verge, TN. 30 miles south of Nashville. “We met David early in our career. I was only 16. We had been long-time songwriting partners but we always knew we wanted to make this record with him,” says Donna. “He totally gets us. He brought the perfect balance of sonic integrity and laid-back finesse.” The feeling is mutual. “Donna is a vocal superhero,” says David. “She can really bring it. She’s full of ideas, she never misses a note and the band is badass.”

Less a concept album than a panoramic sonic terrain across which various thematic vectors collide and combine…
