Following last month’s soulful single, “Photographs,” today, acclaimed Austin-based ensemble Wild Child return with an elegant new single, “Wearing Blue.” It’s the first song written with Wild Child’s newest member, John Calvin Abney, who’ll join the band’s core writing duo Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins for a special tour of acoustic shows beginning later this week, including a run of appearances in Texas that will feature a string quartet.

Beggins comments on the song:

“John entered our orbit so effortlessly and his unique mix of genuine charisma and talent ignited a fire on the writing of our new material. As such, ‘Wearing Blue’ happened in the first 30 minutes of officially getting the band back together. John shared a hauntingly beautiful piano riff that he had been holding onto for years and within a few minutes, Kelsey had found the perfect words and melody, as if they had fallen from the cosmos. The chemistry was undeniable and it marked a seamless transition into a new world of Wild Child.”
