Watch Evan Myall's faded video for new single "Forever Mine" now

Despite the current situation, we are coming up on Song of the Summer territory, and Evan Myall has an early contender with his track "Forever Mine". The sunny single comes from his upcoming self-titled debut LP, which drops on May 8th. Inspired by Glen Campbell and George Harrison, the soft-rock-tinged feel-good song continues to power the modern psych-rock trend with chilled-out guitar solos and Myall's breathy vocals spouting romantic verse. Should you manage to find some time for a sanity walk, find a nice open field to enjoy on your own and let the sunny vibes of "Forever Mine" wash over you.
