Billy Strings recently announced that his new studio album, HOME, will be released Sept. 27 via Rounder Records, and today the bluegrass guitarist shares a new track from the effort, “Taking Water.”

The new track features Strings singing lyrics about a sinking ship, using the metaphor for any number of seemingly doomed life situations, as he and his band lay down a relentless, mostly minor bluegrass bedrock.

Listen to “Taking Water” below. String and his band are on the road this summer and play today at West Virginia’s 4848 Festival. See their full schedule here.
