“It Ain’t Easy,” the new single out today (August 31) from multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning artist EVERLAST is a soulful track that further cements him as a heartland working class hero.
‘My oldest daughter was born with cystic fibrosis. The song is not specifically about that, per se, but the whole concept, ‘It Ain’t Easy,’ life just wasn’t easy at the moment,'” Everlast told Rolling Stone.
Following “Don’t Complain” and “The Culling,” “It Ain’t Easy”-written with Nashville heavy weights Luke Laird and Barry Dean–marks the third offering from the rapper and singer-songwriter’s upcoming album WHITEY FORD’S HOUSE OF PAIN, out September 7 via Martyr-Inc Records. Pre-order the album here.
WHITEY FORD’S HOUSE OF PAIN is his seventh solo studio effort overall and first studio album of all-new material since 2011’s Songs of the Ungrateful Living (2013’s The Life Acoustic was re-recorded solo guitar versions of previously released songs). The 12-song collection offers an eclectic stylistic sampling from throughout EVERLAST’s nearly-three-decade-long journey.
