Donovan Woods is releasing his new four-song digital EP They Are Going Away, on March 3.
The Warner/Chappell writer has penned songs Tim McGraw, Billy Currington, Charlie Worsham and Charles Kelley, who recorded his song “Leaving Nashville” for his solo CD. The lead track on Woods’ new project, “What They Mean,” was penned with Kelley and is a response to a curious child in the backseat of a car who is listening carefully to the car radio.
“The songs are about coping with loss, and wholesale changes, that sort of thing,” offers Woods. “The title, I suppose, is trying to get at the temporariness of everything. Time speeds up when you get older, that’s an observable fact. It starts to feel like you’re always chasing some ineffable thing. It’s why your dad often had a slightly bewildered look in his eyes.”
In support of the release, Woods will embark on an 11-city Northeastern tour with Alan Doyle (Great Big Sea), which includes stops in Ann Arbor, Pittsburgh, New York, Richmond, and Boston, among others.
