"I'm so excited to be out on the road again with The Survivors and hitting some cities we've not been to for a while." Young says, "We're looking forward to playing some of the new album and of course we always throw in a few surprises. Come on down and bring yer dancin' shoes!"
Randy Lewis of The Los Angeles Times premiered the album in its entirety. "I hope that others who have gone through loss, who have gone through heartbreak — be it divorce, death or other forms of loss — will be able to connect with it," Young told the Times. "I'm not the only one to go through late-in-life divorce; I'm not the only one to suffer a major heartbreak. And I won't be the last."
