The Best That I Can Give from Emerson Hart

emerson-hartToday, Emerson Hart released the first single, “The Best That I Can Give,” of his sophomore album Beauty In Disrepair, an intimate collection of songs about loss, rebirth, newfound love and family, ”born out of stuff I don’t want anyone else to say.”

The single premieres on USAToday.com and impacts radio in February 2014.

It’s brilliant, I love it, this song makes you feel something before you even get 30 seconds in. Seven days into the new year and I’m already swooning over new music.

Hart collaborated with producer David Hodges (Kelly Clarkson, Christina Perri, Carrie Underwood) for Beauty In Disrepair, his first release on BMG and the follow up to 2007s critically acclaimed solo debut Gasoline & Cigarettes. The album produced two Top 20 singles “If You’re Gonna Leave” and “I Wish The Best For You.”

In January and February, Emerson will preview the new material in select markets across the U.S. before embarking on a two-week tour with Tonic in March. Additional solo and Tonic dates TBA.
