Inspired by one of Bones Owens early guitar rock idols, Jimi Hendrix, the latest rock-infused single “Goin’ Back Where I Came From” is available now, providing listeners the opportunity to visualize the song’s main character exhausted by the daily hustle and bustle, tired of being anonymous.

“‘Going Back Where I Came From’ is the tale of a guy who’s reached his wits’ end with city life and longs to return to his rural roots,” Bones told Holler, who premiered the track.

This is the second single off Owens’ forthcoming genre-bending album, Love Out Of Lemons, due July 12 2024 via Black Ranch Records / Thirty Tigers. The upcoming release showcases his raw songwriting while encapsulating the electric essence of his live shows.

In conjunction with the album announcement, Bones Owens released “Get It On” with People Magazine, who premiered the track and video for the celebratory anthem; reveling in the feeling of finally being able to unwind at the end of a long day.

Recorded at The Smoakstack in Nashville, Love Out Of Lemons dives into topics about love, self-preservation, and new beginnings. It’s a sonically vibrant, multi-layered album, making for an ideal summer soundtrack. Owens’ self-described chameleon-like approach has not only played a pivotal role in his own music, but the ability to collaborate with artists across all genres, having worked with Yelawolf, Mikky Ekko, and Grammy-nominated, Jelly Roll.

The 11-tracks feature co-writes with Henry Brill (Phantogram, Jack Garratt) on “Born Again” and Austin Jenkins (Leon Bridges, White Denim) on “Higher Than I Wanna Be.” Drums throughout were played by Julian Dorio (The Whigs, Eagles of Death Metal), with all other instruments handled by Owens and producer Moak.

Owens will be making a solo trek around the Midwest on his Harley Davidson to coincide with the release of Love Out of Lemons. “I’ll just have a guitar strapped on the back to do some intimate shows and radio spots,” he explained. “As well as checking in on friends and family along the way.”

Originally planned for the previous November, the trip was postponed after Owens struck a deer on his motorcycle the day before he was due to leave. Tying in with Love Out of Lemons standout “Goin’ Back Where I Came From,” the route will include Owens’ native Missouri and Harley Davidson’s Milwaukee headquarters.

“I think it’s perfect that the record is coming out in the summer,” he concluded before heading out to the night’s soundcheck. “Because it very much feels like a sunny day, drivin’-down-the-road soundtrack to me.”
