Secondhand Serenade, aka singer-songwriter John Vesely, is ready to release his third album, 'Hear Me Now,' next month, but first he wants you to check out a taste of what's in store.
John's new song, 'You and I,' embodies everything that Secondhand Serenade fans love about the Menlo Park, Calif. native -- honest lyrics coupled with soaring, sweet melodies.
"'You and I' is one of my favorite songs on the album," John tells JSYK. "I actually recorded it, took a few days off and decided to re-record it because I didn't like it at the time. It was recorded in a bedroom in my house, and I had a ton of fun trying new things to get the final product."
John produced 'You and I' himself, but also worked with The Fray's producer, Aaron Johnson, on a bulk of the tracks on 'Hear Me Now.' Listen to the song below, and get psyched for the new Secondhand Serenade record, which will be released in stores and on iTunes on August 3.
