MYLES KENNEDY Announces Third Solo Album, The Art Of Letting Go, Slated For Release October 11th Via Napalm Records

Keeping the tradition of releasing new music every three years alive, vocalist / guitarist / songwriter Myles Kennedy – known for his work with rockers Alter Bridge and Slash And The Conspirators – is back with his third solo album, The Art Of Letting Go. The album marks the return of Myles, backed by his band comprised of Zia Uddin on drums and Tim Tournier on bass. The album is scheduled for release via longtime label home Napalm Records on October 11, 2024, and is available for pre-order in multiple configurations here.

From the opening guitar riff of the title track “The Art Of Letting Go” to the haunting melody of album closer “How The Story Ends,” Myles Kennedy is back with a collection of songs that is sure to cater to old and new fans alike. Songs like “Mr. Downsid”, “Miss You When You’re Gone”, and “Saving Face” showcase the memorable storytelling that has become synonymous throughout all of Myles’ projects. The debut single - currently impacting radio around the globe from The Art Of Letting Go - is the upbeat rocker “Say What You Will”. The song is now available via all DSPs.

The music video was directed by Gordy De St Jeor (Mammoth WVH) and tells the story of a bullied and timid student who breaks out of her shell with the help of a teacher, janitor and lunch person portrayed by Kennedy, Uddin, and Tournier in the school talent show.
