Brett Gleason releases “Expiration Date” single

NYC based singer/songwriter Brett Gleason has just released a new single titled, “Expiration Date.” Listen here. The track, which Atwood Magazine has called a “funeral dirge for lost love,” will be featured on Gleason’s sophomore full-length Manifest, which is due out on April 14th. The singer/songwriter had this to say about the single:

“The song is about love’s inevitable conclusion: Because we are constantly changing, beginning anew and ending once again, if we are to love honestly we must embrace that nothing is forever, including love, and this does nothing to minimize the experience of connecting with another person in the limited time we are who we are, together in this moment.”

Manifest is the follow-up album to 2014’s self-titled debut, and can be pre-ordered here. The pre-order comes with a instant download of “Expiration Date.”

At first glance, Manifest is a piano based folk rock record but it slowly reveals itself as much more than that. After years of dealing with mental illness, the album represents Brett’s re-initiation with reality. It is a re-birth, a declaration, and a triumph. The ten song cycle approaches the great themes of life such as love, sex, death & time, with the grateful but hesitant approach of the newly recovered.

The result is both sad and hopeful at the same time – “I’ll break your heart, so I can put it back together, stronger than ever,” Brett sings on “Rough Love,” daring you to face your truth and be better for it.

A multi-instrumentalist and self-produced artist, Brett Gleason constructs deceptively complex songs that twist and turn but effortlessly stay in your head and burrow into your heart.  His piano playing is the cornerstone of most songs as he often performs solo but there’s not one instance where he doesn’t also accompany himself on guitar, bass and at least one other instrument.
