Boston-based singer/songcrafter Mark Erelli has unveiled a live performance video of “I Can't Stand Myself,” a new track off his LP Blindsided, due out via Soundly Music next Friday, March 27th. The track pairs a Bo Diddly beat with an exploration of faith and doubt. “We value faith highly in America, and there is an overarching feeling that you have to believe in something. But doubt can be as powerful as a locomotive, and on this song, I tie myself to the tracks,” Erelli explains of “I Can't Stand Myself. “I've always thought of myself as a good person, but if that is true, then why do I occasionally let people down or hurt them?” “'I Can't Stand Myself' comes out swinging with a jangly piano riff, then leads into Erelli's distinctive vocals,” says The Boot in its premiere of the video, which features Erelli along with Jake Armerding on fiddle.
