Folk-rock band The Avett Brothers gave their fans a new single on Friday with a warm and easygoing song titled, “Neapolitan Sky”. The song’s arrival follows the previously shared singles, “Roses and Sacrifice” and “Trouble Letting Go”. All three stand-alone songs will presumably appear on the band’s forthcoming follow up studio album to 2016’s True Sadness, if and when it’s ever announced.

The new ballad is a pretty relaxed song from the popular band, who are no strangers to penning lovely, acoustic-based ballads. “Neapolitan Sky” could almost be considered a lovely mix between an old Irish folk tune with the loose flow of a Jimmy Buffett beach tune. The song’s lyrics are pretty relatable for the current, somber mood of the season, as vocalist Seth Avett sings out, “What’s with this moment? What’s with this feeling? What’s with January and the locks on the door?” The song definitely provides a few minutes of warmth and melodic beauty while half the nation sits firmly in a wintertime depression.

Scott Avett also shared a brief video to help announce the new single, which takes him from the sauna to the fireplace and beyond.
