Jason Isbell Releases New Album “Reunions”


Jason Isbell recently released his seventh solo album “Reunions” on 15th May, 2020. This release came after 3 years of the last album “The Nashville Sound” which was released on June 16 2017.

All the tracks of this album are very good but my favorite song is “Only Children”. The lyrics of the songs remind me of my own childhood. This song actually depicts Isbell's childhood and the loss of his long lost friend’s memories.

In an interview, he revealed how he wrote this song and this is the first song that he wrote for the album Reunions, at the time he was in Greece with wife Amanda Shires, and some close friends for vacations. Both of his friends are writers, they were sitting around one night at a villa and singing, playing and sharing the memories and the work they did for each other and that’s how the song “only children” came out.
