After announcing their farewell earlier this year, Tenth Avenue North is releasing their last offering as a band with newly recorded versions of their hits over the last two decades. The new album features 10 of the band's greatest hits and fan favorites including "By Your Side," "You Are More," "Control," "Greater Than All My Regrets" and more.
ď'Give the people what they want.' Thatís the advice I give to young artists when I hear them begin to grumble over their first hit song. 'All of this...all the attention, the love, the audience giving you the time of day...itís a gift. So give them what they came to hear.'" shares Tenth Avenue North frontman Mike Donehey. "And thatís the heart behind Unplugged For the People. In a lyric driven genre, I canít tell you the number of times Iíve heard, 'I just wished you stripped everything away so we can hear the words better.' We took note. If itís time to say goodbye to this band, and this twenty year journey weíve been on, we figured we might as well go out with what weíve been asked for all along the way. Luscious, contemplative, dreamy, intimate...these are the adjectives we aimed for as we sent files back and forth during the tightest months of lockdown. These songs, which weíve sung countless times over the last decades spoke to us in new and profoundly comforting ways. We hope they do the same for you."
