Brad Arnold From 3 Doors Down Releases Debut Solo Single
3 Doors Down singer Brad Arnold has taken a step away from the group to work on his first solo album, and the first track from the upcoming release is here!. His debut sing 'Wicked Man' is a solemn, emotional track aand has been produced by Arnold's 3 Doors Down bandmate Greg Upchurch.
"The song was recorded at Rivergate Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee," says Arnold. "The song was produced by Greg Upchurch, who is also the drummer for 3DD. Greg wrote the music to the song as well. He'd written a guitar riff and sent it to me a few months ago. I listened to it and liked the idea. It had the darker feel to it. I get licks in my head and eventually melodies and ideas start to form. In thinking about events of the days over the next few weeks, these are the lyrics that grew."
Talking about the track itself, Arnold says, "The inspiration for the song has been the world around us. The recent events that have happened and are happening in our country are events that will shape the future. In so many of these events, it seems there must be 'someone behind the curtain.' I believe a lot of people agree with this. I think that people are tired of being lied to and manipulated and are beginning to see the pattern. This song just points out a few of the things that are dividing and shaping things. I hope it makes people realise that we truly are all in this together. It's everyone's future."
In regards to working during the pandemic, he added, "I do realise what a blessing it is to have some room to move. I've never been much on sitting down and writing. I tend to write outside when I'm doing other things so it has been a good time for me to collect some thoughts. That's one main reason that I wanted to do this song as a solo project. I think that it will be great experience but it's also a chance for me to record some ideas that are me, but not as much for 3 Doors Down. I hope people like the song. I hope they take something from it."
