Celebrated indie songwriter Bob Nanna (of Braid, Hey Mercedes and The City On Film fame) has released a brand new single titled “Do You Want to Buy a Guitar?” Lifted from Nanna’s forthcoming solo album, “Do You Want to Buy a Guitar?” is the first glimpse into his highly personal upcoming showcase that details a major life shift for the seasoned musician: a full, all-acoustic album recorded entirely on September 7, the day that would’ve been Nanna’s wedding anniversary.
Simple and exposed, “Do You Want to Buy a Guitar?” places Nanna’s distinct, honeyed vocals on full display and discusses the personal process of coping with a certain type of loss. Nanna had the following to share about the single and upcoming album:
“’Do You Want to Buy a Guitar?’ is the first of 10 songs that document the highs and lows of a one year-long story. It’s autobiographical and I purposely awaited a positive resolution before I decided to complete the project.”
