Today, we've teamed up with Ghost Light—featuring guitarists/singers Tom Hamilton and Raina Mullen, pianist Holly Bowling, bassist Steve Lyons and drummer Scotty Zwang—to premiere their new single, "Don't Come Apart Just Yet, My Dear." You can check it out below.

The song is the second single from the band's forthcoming debut album, Best Kept Secrets. Set for a March 22 release, you can preorder the album right here.

“I had the framework of this song demoed out about five or six years ago when I was getting back into two things: listening to Brian Jonestown Massacre, and smoking pot," Hamilton told Guitar Player. "I think you can cover the feel, guitar tones, and tempo shifts all within those two activities.

"I didn’t really understand the song then so I put it away, but when I rediscovered it as I was pulling ideas for this album I knew exactly what to do with it. The juxtaposition of tones was important. Sloppy fuzzed out electric guitars and then like a light switch, it’s lush and precise 12-stringed acoustic guitars. The tempo shifts. The male, then female voices. It’s tells a story, sonically.”

“When Tom and I were putting together the guitarmony bit at the end, I wanted it to feel like a plane going in for a rough landing, and I think we nailed it," Mullen added. "It’s turbulent and gritty and it’s fun to play.”

Ghost Light are set to begin an American tour in two weeks' time. You can check out their full itinerary below.
