Eddie Island – Honey (You Said Love)

American Idol alumni Eddie Island is back today with not only a fabulous single, but also an equally impressive new album.

Lifted from his freshly-released ‘Folkstar’ LP (out now), ‘Honey (You Said Love)’ treats listeners to a shimmering fusion of uplifting pop, indie and folk. Speaking on his new collection of songs, the Nashville-based artist says:

“Folkstar’s songs are all based around solid concepts. All of my demos from years and years and years of writing had to be whittled down, and sometimes I combined several songs into one. On this album, I explore themes of not being understood, love lost, love found. I try to bridge the gap between my faith and the experience of reality, all while working jobs I hated and seemingly having no future in music. The songs are about the everyday struggles we all face in life and death.”

Eddie Island currently commands more than 68k monthly listeners on Spotify alone, while his catalogue of releases has amassed well over 5.5 million streams to date.
