With heavy driving guitars and drums, contrasted with dark smooth vocals, 'There's A Kind Of Hush' is the seventh song in a series of singles being released digitally in 2011 by GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal.

Bumblefoot comments: "This song was recorded alongside Bernadette, a week before my first tour with GNR in May 2006. The vocals are inspired by Engelbert Humperdinck's cover of the song, and my affinity for feel-good loungy songs of the '60s & '70s, contrasted by a wall of guitars and the Dennis's drum reflections filling the room. Smooth vocals over driven intense instruments, love the contrast....
Rhythm guitars were with the Line6 Vetta2 combo, the same one I lugged in my car a week later to those GNR NYC warm-up gigs at the Hammerstein. While mixing this song in mid-July 2011 I added the end guitar solo, using the Vigier Bfoot '09 guitar on the neck pickup (DiMarzio Chopper) through the Engl Invader100 head.
And here it is, song #7 in the 2011 song-a-month series, enjoy!!"
According to a press release, the song is available in MP3 (320kps), AAC, and higher-quality formats FLAC, MP3 HD, Apple Lossless and WAV. An instrumental version of the song is available in these formats as well.
