No Depression premiered the bonus track, ‘Nobody’s Gonna Get Hurt’ off Glen Phillips’ upcoming Compass Records release, SWALLOWED BY THE NEW, out May 4th. The song was co-written with renowned songwriter Lori McKenna.
“Lori and I wrote ‘Nobody’s Gonna Get Hurt’ at her home just outside of Boston. I’d been reading and listening to a lot of David Whyte and was taken by his assertion that heartache is the inevitable byproduct of loving anything deeply, a sign of a life well lived instead of something to be avoided. I came in with the title and an idea that the song should be entirely lies. Lori jumped in and we finished it all in under two hours. That was a good day.”
