Jerry Castle has shared another taste of his Midnight Testaments album in the shape of his new single ‘Stars Align’.
In contrast to the gritty, party-starting energy of ‘Tequila & Tears’ or the laidback reflection of ‘Calm’, Jerry Castle’s new single ‘Stars Align’ is an old school country vibe with some modern day observations (“Life is like a drunken text”). That timeless style is captured with the help of a highly accomplished band, whose previous credits include everyone from The Chicks and Keith Urban to Joe Bonamassa and Train.
‘Stars Align’ explores an idea that Jerry first delved into on his previous single ‘Make Do’. Whereas that song celebrated the freedom of doing your best when fate deals you a bad hand, ‘Stars Align’ is about embracing the fact that life is a tumultuous rollercoaster of ups, downs and everything in-between. So what can you do aside from strap in for the ride?
“I wrote all of the lyrics to this song before I ever picked up a guitar and put music to it,” says Jerry. “The song is about the fact that sometimes you can do everything right and things still don’t work out the way you want. Nonetheless, the ride of life is a beautiful one. It takes the downs to make the ups feel good and it takes the ugly to make you recognise the beautiful.”
