Billy Strings has released his debut single “Taking Water” off the forthcoming album HOME (Rounder). Rolling Stone Country exclusively premiered “Taking Water,” calling it “gripping” and adding that Billy Strings is “one of string music’s most dynamic young stars.”

Billy Strings has been hailed as the future of bluegrass, transcending tradition and genre with his high velocity, flat-picking guitar technique and intense, confessional songwriting.

HOME is undoubtedly the Michigan-born, Nashville-based artist’s bravest excursion thus far, reshaping bluegrass into his own exceptional form, completely rewiring the aesthetic with elements of punk, country, folk rock, and genuine psychedelic exploration to fashion something altogether original and all his own.

HOME is Strings’ second studio album and is due out on Sept 27. Pre order is available now
