“With this record, there’s an honest attempt to bring back more complex arrangements in rock
music that were so prevalent in a lot of the music we all grew up listening to but have been
missing for too long in most of today’s music,” says WH. “This album also has a little
more of a positive message than some of our past studio albums. A lot of the songs are about
rediscovery and unity and celebrating what’s most important in life. We’re excited to finally have
Peace…Like A River out into the world and to perform the new music for our fans, who have
already been embracing the new material.”

Peace…Like A River was recorded during the same sessions as Heavy Load Blues at The
Power Station New England with co-producer John Paterno (Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt,
Los Lobos) alongside Haynes. The albums, however, were created in different rooms, with no
shared gear or instruments, keeping the two concurrent projects with their own unique identity
and character. Thematically, the new collection explores the seismic changes the world has gone through over the past few years. Influenced both in his songwriting and playing by what WH calls “the golden era of rock, soul, Jazz and blues”

STUDIO DOCUMENTARY: Making Peace…Like A River

We introduced the new album with the stirring lead single “Dreaming Out Loud” featuring vocals from New Orleans soul legend and longtime friend Ivan Neville and blues great Ruthie Foster. For the song’s lyrics, we wove together inspirational quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Robert and John Kennedy, and the late civil rights leader and U.S. Representative John Lewis. Peace…Like A River opens with the soaring and heartfelt track “Same As It Ever Was” and then ventures into the humor-infused “Shake Our Way Out” featuring Gibbons’ trademark vocals. Influenced by The Beatles, the epic “Made My Peace” is our nine-minute introspection on loss with a sweeping orchestral backdrop from The Kerhonkson Philharmonic. Elsewhere on Peace…Like A River is Billy Bob Thornton adding his distinctive vocals to “The River Only Flows One Way” and rising soul artist Celisse showcasing her incredible talents on “Just Across The River.”
