American Songwriter: Danny Burns Taps Tift Merritt For “Human Heart”

“Irish singer-songwriter Danny Burns has a hell of a guest roster on his forthcoming debut album North Country, due out via Bonfire Recording Co. on January 18. Among that roster — which also includes Mindy Smith, Holly Williams and Sam Bush — is Tift Merritt, who joins Burns on new track “Human Heart,” premiering below.

“Human Heart” is a fiddle-driven love song rooted in Americana rock and accented with lively bluegrass flourishes. Merritt joins Burns at the song’s choruses, complementing his road-worn vocals with honeyed harmonies.”
