Today, Tanya Blount-Trotter and Michael Trotter Jr., the musical duo known as The War And Treaty – have released “Take Me In,” from their eagerly-anticipated new album Hearts Town, out September 25, 2020.
“Take Me In,” – the track which closes Hearts Town – is a rousing, gospel-tinged, piano-fueled epic that calls for unity amidst times of deep division.
‘Stop looking for the next Dr. King or Malcolm or Mother Teresa and start looking for the first you.”
Michael Trotter reflects, “We were seeing so much anger in the world as we were making this album, so we wanted to give people something that told them, ‘Stop looking for the next Dr. King or Malcolm X or Mother Teresa and start looking for the first you.”
“Right now, a lot of people are feeling so deeply engulfed in pain and surrounded by negativity, and sometimes you just need to hear that you’re good,” adds Tanya.
Garden & Gun shared an exclusive preview of “Take Me In” with their readers yesterday. “Tanya and Michael Trotter have voices that will stop you in your tracks,” wrote Dacey Orr Sivewright, adding “This September, the Nashville-based duo will release Hearts Town, an album chock full of the staggering vocal highs and uplifting themes that fans have come to treasure.”
